The playing conditions of Reserve Day are also like other days. The umpire will try to conduct full 50 overs. If the game is interrupted due to rain, we will try to conduct at least a 20-20 over match. For the result of the match, it is necessary to play 20-20 overs in both the innings. Since India has played 20 overs. Now in such a situation Pakistan will also try to complete 20 overs.

That is, suppose the rain starts in the 40th over of the Indian team’s innings and stops after three-four hours. In such a situation, reduction in overs will start. The umpire will use the Duckworth-Lewis rule and award the target to Pakistan in the stipulated overs. Suppose Pakistan gets a target in 30 overs under DLS.

If Pakistan plays only 15 overs and then rain comes and the match cannot be played. In such a situation the match will be canceled because it is necessary to play 20 overs. At the same time, if Pakistan team plays 21 overs and after that rain interferes and then the match cannot be played then Duckworth Lewis rule will be used and the result of the match will be known.
