It stated, “Every effort will be made for the match to be completed on Sunday, with any necessary reduction of overs taking place and only if the minimum number of overs necessary to constitute a match cannot be bowled on Sunday will the match go into the reserve day.”
It is pertinent to mention that ICC has already changed the timings of the final toss. It was scheduled for 12:30 PM PST. According to the new timings, the toss will happen eight minutes earlier i.e. 12:22 PM PST.
The schedule was changed because of a concert before the final. Moreover, a grand fireworks show is expected to take place following the match.
