And what about bad weather?
Unfortunately, rain has been a factor throughout the tournament, and it looms as the case again for Sunday’s final.
While the headline figure from the Bureau of Meteorology is for a 95 per cent chance of any rain on Sunday and a possible thunderstorm, drilling down to 7pm on Sunday evening, the forecast at the time of writing was for about 2mm to fall and improving slightly as the night wears on.
The ICC does have a reserve day scheduled for the final if necessary, although the preference will be to complete the match on the night, with overs reduced and an the DLS coming into play before the reserve day option will be triggered.
In normal circumstances, just five overs a side is needed to constitue an official match in the T20 format, but in the finals, a minimum of 10 overs must be bowled to the side batting second (unless a result is achieved sooner) for it to be an official match.
If the reserve day is needed, the window for play will open at 3pm AEDT.
