    Rain reserve day rules

    November 26, 2014

    Sri Lanka Cricket has issued a press release giving the following rain reserve day rules.

    All matches will consist of one innings per side, each innings being limited to a maximum of 50 overs. All matches shall be of one day’s scheduled duration provided that participating countries in a series may agree to provide a reserve day on which an incomplete match may be replayed or continued from the schedule day.

     

    If the match is to be continued on the reserve day, the participating countries may agree that:
    1) Every effort is made to complete the match on the scheduled day with any necessary reduction in overs taking place and only if the minimum number of overs necessary to constitute a match cannot be bowled on the scheduled day will the match be completed on the reserve day.

    2) If the match has started on the scheduled day and overs are reduced following an interruption , but no further play is possible, the match will resume on the reserve day at the point where the last ball was played

    Example 1
    Match starts at 50 overs per side and there is an interruption at 19 overs. Overs are reduced to 46 overs per side and play is about to resume.
    Before another ball is bowled it rains and play is abandoned for the day.
    As the match didn’t resume under the revised overs, the match should continue on the reserve day at the original 50 overs per side with the overs reduced if necessary on that day.

    Example 2
    The same start as in example 1 that is the match starts at 50 overs per side and there is an interruption at 19 overs. Overs are reduced to 46 overs per side and play is about to resume.

    This time, play starts and after an over has been bowled it rains and play is abandoned for the day.

    As the match has resumed, it is continued on the reserve day at 46 overs per side with the overs reduced if necessary during the day.

    Example 3
    The toss occurs on the scheduled day but the match is abandoned for the day without a ball being bowled.
    When play commences on the reserve day:-
    *The captains shall not be entitled to re-toss (and nominate teams) unless agreement between the two captains: and
    *These matches shall always be regarded in the records as a single match.

    NOTE :If the reserve day is utilized , the hours of play on the reserve day are the same as scheduled hours of play on the scheduled day, including any provision for extra time. The amount of extra time available on the reserve day cannot exceed that which was available on the schedule day.(KH)
