The restart of the much anticipated Super 4 stagep Pakistan-India clash has once again been delayed by rain.
India will resume its batting from 147/2 in 24.1 overs. Both Virat Kohli and KL Rahul will be hoping to continue the good start provided by the openers.
If the game continues to be interrupted by rain, contingency plans are in place to ensure that the match can reach a conclusion.
Here are some of the possible scenarios:
Overs Reduced: The match officials could be forced to reduce the overs if the weather condition doesn’t improve.
Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) Method: There are bright chances that the DLS method could be utilised to get a result.
According to calculations, if India don’t bat again, Pakistan will have to chase a 206 runs target in 24.1 overs.
Shared Points: If all the efforts go in vain, both teams will share a point each. This means Pakistan will have 3 points after two and India just 1 after their first game.
However, things could get difficult for India as they face Sri Lanka tomorrow.
If the game is once again affected by rain, India’s chances of qualifying to the final could be badly affected.
