DRS for the first time in the tournament
DRS will be used for the first time in the T20 World Cup, the ICC has approved it. During the match, each team can use the Dijon Review System twice in an innings. There was no such rule in the last T20 World Cup because then DRS was not used in this format.
What is the point table rule?
In T20 World Cup, every team will get 2 points for winning a match, no points will be given for losing. If the match is tied, one point will be divided between the two teams. If the points of any 2 teams in a group are equal, then further decision will be taken considering the net run rate and head to head record.
What if the group match is tied?
If the match is tied in the T20 World Cup, then the victory and defeat will be decided through Super Over. If the super over is also tied then another super over will be played. If the Super Over is not played due to bad weather, then one point will be divided between the two teams.
What happens if the knockout match is tied?
If the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 ends in a draw, then the team that tops the Super-12 will reach the semi-finals. If there is no result in the final of the tournament, then the trophy will be shared between the two teams.
