Here’s What Will Happen If Champions Trophy Semi Finals Are Washed Out?


England, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan have qualified for the semi-final round of the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy 2017. While fans are waiting desperately for the matches, they are also worried about bad weather conditions. Interestingly, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has kept reserve days only for the summit clash of the tournament, and none for the semi finals.

So, what will happen if rains during semi-finals of ICC Champions Trophy 2017?


International Cricket Council (ICC) rules state that the team that topped their respective group will go through in case of a rain wash-out. This means, England will qualify from Group A because they are the table toppers. And, from Group B, India will qualify because they have an advantage over Bangladesh.


But, in case of a tie i.e. if both the teams end with the same number of runs in either of the semi finals, they would have to play a Super Over.
