T20 World Cup 2024 Rules and Format

Following the 20 overs format, both teams will face 20 overs in this tournament unless the team that bats first gets bowled out before 20 overs, or the team batting second chases the target before 20 overs.

Stop-Clock Rule

The ICC is introducing a new stop-clock rule in Men’s white-ball cricket from June 1. As per this rule, the bowling side must start the next over within 60 seconds after the previous over is completed.

For monitoring, an electronic clock will be displayed on the ground, monitored by the third umpire, counting down from 60 to 0 seconds.

If a team does not start the over within 60 seconds, they will receive two warnings. If the rule is breached again, it will result in a 5-run penalty.

There are a few exceptions to this rule. The clock, if already started, can be canceled in certain situations, including:

  • When a new batter comes to the wicket between overs
  • An official drinks interval has been called
  • The umpires have approved the onfield treatment of an injury to a batter or fielder
  • The time lost is for any circumstances beyond the control of the fielding side

T20 World Cup 2024 Rules

Six overs in every inning will be considered as powerplay overs, and the teams follow different fielding restrictions during these overs. The total time for a complete T20 match is 3 hours and 10 minutes, with each inning to be played in one hour and 25 minutes, and 20 minutes are allocated for a drinks break.

Each team will get 2 unsuccessful reviews per inning. If a match results in a tie, it will go to a super over, where both teams play 6 balls, and the highest scorer wins the match. If the super-over also results in a tie, another super-over will be played, and this process will continue until a winner is decided.

Each team will get two unsuccessful reviews per inning.

In the two group phases, a result must be constituted by playing a minimum of five overs per side. However, this requirement increases to 10 overs in the semi-finals and final. If a match is stopped after that point due to weather conditions, the winner will be decided through the DLS (Duckworth-Lewis-Stern) method.

The first semi-final and final have a reserve day, while the second semi-final will have an extra 250 minutes only.

It has already been decided that India will play the second semi-final if they qualify.
