For those of you who would like to know more about some aspects of the inaugural World Twenty20 tournament, we will endeavour to answer those questions below:

Length of innings, extra time
To constitute a match, a minimum of 5 overs have to be faced by both sides, providing their respective innings have not been concluded earlier.
If the start is delayed or play suspended, playing time will be extended by a maximum of 1 hour in Group and Super 8 matches; 2 hours for semifinals and 4 hours for the final.

Various
No bowler can bowl more than 4 overs (ie one fifth of the total number of overs; to be reduced when the total number of overs are reduced).
There will be a break of maximum 20 minutes between innings.
Should a match end in a tie, a bowl-out will determine the winner.
The delivery following a No Ball (foot fault) shall be a free hit  for whichever batsman is facing. The umpire will signal the free hit (after the No ball signal) by extending one arm straight upwards and moving it in a circular motion.

Points system
No points earned in the Group stage (GS) will be carried forward to the Super 8 (S8) stage.
Win = 2 points
No result = 1 point
Loss = 0 points

In the event of teams finishing on equal points in the GS, the right to play in the S8 will be determine according to the following order of priority:

  • Team with most wins
  • Team with higher net run rate (NRR)
  • Higher number of wickets taken per balls bowled
  • Winner of the head-to-head match
  • Drawing of lots

If all three matches in a group are abandoned, the top 2 seeded teams will progress.

The same principle goes for progressing from the S8 to the semifinals (SF).

If a SF is tied, the teams shall compete in a bowl-out to determine the finalist.
If a SF has no result, the team with the most wins in GS and S8 will play in the final. If the teams are still equal, the team with the higher net run rate in the GS and S8 stage shall progress to the final. Still equal? The team with the higher number of wickets per balls bowled in both GS and S8 will progress. If the teams are still equal, lots will be drawn.

If the final is tied or declared a no result, the teams shall have a bowl-out to determine the winner; failing which both teams will be joint winners.

Net Run Rate (NRR)

A team's NRR is calculated by deducting from the average runs per over (RpO) scored by that team throughout the competition, the average RpO scored against that team.

Should a team be out in less than its full quota of overs, the calculation of its NRR will be based on the full quota of overs to which it was entitled, and not the number of overs in which the team was dismissed.

Only matches in which a result was achieved will be taken into consideration when NRRs are calculated.
