The fate of the Indian Premier League (IPL) trophy could fall to the Super Cup if disruption hampers playability. In the event of an inability to compete, the tournament standings will determine the winner of the competition. This procedure applies to all knockout matches as well as the final.
With monsoons starting to hit various parts of the country, Kolkata is also expected to receive heavy rainfall over the next few days. Predictably, there will be two more hours beyond the prescribed 200 minutes for the game to officially start.
This implies that knockout matches can start as late as 9:40pm IST without losing any rounds. On the other hand, the final in Ahmedabad could even start at 10:10pm with a full 40 matches. Delayed starts will reduce the interval between sets to seven minutes. However, the pause time strategy still finds a place in the course of things.
In the case of a draw match with five passes per turn, the IPL guidelines state:
“The number of passes in the knockout may be reduced, if necessary, to give each side a chance to beat 5 passes. For the Eliminator and each Qualifier playoff game (no scheduled date). conceded), in which case a match of more than five games cannot be scheduled to be completed by the end of extra time on the first day, the teams shall, if conditions permit, play Super Extra to determine the winner of the relevant Elimination or Qualifier match.”
IPL 2022 Final will have a backup date on May 30
In the event that the weather prevents the completion of the IPL 2022 final on May 29, the match will be allowed to continue with the help of a reserve day. The instructions state that the match will resume on the substitute day from the time it was stopped on the specified date.
However, if the match is abandoned without the ball being thrown and after the toss is completed, the reserve day will see the game begin with a new throw between the two captains.
“The match will continue at the point where it was stopped the previous day. For the avoidance of doubt, any match recalculation performed where the match actually restarted the night before will be ignored.”
This marks the first case where the super can be used in the finals of a tournament due to the influence of the weather. Usual practice over the years has seen a contest lasting more than five balls as a last resort before the match is forced to be cancelled.
“For the IPL final, in the event that it is not possible to arrange a match beyond five matches to be completed by the end of extra time on the substitute day, the teams will, if conditions be available, play a Super Over to determine the Winner of the Final. This means that the field and ground must be ready for play so that the Super Cup can start no later than 1:20 a.m. (final).”
Kolkata and Ahmedabad will host the remaining four knockout matches in IPL 2022. The IPL knockout kicks off tomorrow with Qualifier 1 between the Gujarat Titans (GT) and the Rajasthan Royals (RR).
