Asia Cup 2023: What if India-Pakistan match gets washed out?
The match starts at 3 PM IST. Over the past two days, the region has had significant rain. The Met Office predicts further rain on match day. The morning and evening chances of rain are 67% and 94%, respectively. If the match is canceled due to weather, both sides’ fans would be disappointed.
Plus, ICC rules provide that if a match is canceled or abandoned due to weather, the two sides receive equal points.Also, according to the match fixtures, India and Pakistan would receive one point apiece if there is a washout. Only the ground personnel and umpires can decide whether to play if there’s even a probability of weather improvement. Both teams must play at least 20 overs for the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) method to compute the revised target in rain-affected limited-overs contests.
So, if the team batting second is delayed or interrupted and cannot obtain its full quota of overs, the score of the team batting first is multiplied by the percentage factor for the number of overs ordered. If the team batting first achieves 200 runs in 20 overs and the team batting second can only bat for 10 overs, the new aim is 120 runs. Thus, this is computed by multiplying the first-batting team’s score by 60% for 10 overs. The Star Sports Network will telecast India vs. Pakistan. Plus, Hotstar will stream it live.
