These 2 new rules are very important, will be used in India vs New Zealand and South Africa vs Australia semi-finals

World Cup 2023 Semifinal: Now that the knockout matches are about to start, two new rules of ICC are going to play an important role.

New Delhi : Now the ongoing World Cup 2023 is towards its peak. Only three knockout matches are left. Two semi-finals and then the title clash. In the first semi-final, India and New Zealand (Ind vs Nz semi Final) will face each other on Wednesday, while in the second final four clash, on the same day on Thursday, South Africa and Australia will take the field against each other at Eden Gardens. And ICC has also made changes in the rules for these two knockout matches. If there is any disruption in the semi-finals, then different rules will be used. Let us know about these rules in detail:-

Semifinals and Finals:----
There is a provision of reserve day for both semi-finals and finals. If by any chance the match remains incomplete, then the match will be completed on the reserve day. There was no provision of reserve day in the league round. In the semi-finals, if the match is not completed even on the reserve day, then the team finishing higher in the points table in the group stage will reach the finals. 

Also, there will be a separate time of 120 minutes to complete the semi-finals and finals. This time in the league round was 60 minutes. Also, if the semi-final match is tied, the super over will be used to decide the winner. 

Reserve-day rule for semi-finals and finals
According to ICC rules, the number of playing hours on the reserve day will be the same as on the pre-determined day. This also includes an additional time of 120 minutes. If play is interrupted on the scheduled day, the umpires can use extra time. And if necessary, the number of overs can also be reduced. 

To get the result of the match on the scheduled day, it is mandatory for each team to bat at least 20 overs. On the reserve day, play will start from the same stage where the last ball was bowled on the scheduled day.
