What does ICC rule say?
According to the point system, victory in a match in the tournament will get 2 points, while defeat will get zero points. If a match is tied, canceled or the result of the match does not come out, then 1 point will be divided between both the teams. There is no reserve day for the qualifying and Super-12 rounds, i.e. if the match is canceled then it will be considered as cancelled.
Reserve day is for which match?
The ICC has kept reserve days only for playoff matches. That is, there is a reserve day for both the semi-final and the final match. If it rains on the day of these matches or if the match does not take place due to any other reason, then the match will be held on the reserve day. However, the first attempt will be to get the match completed on the same day, even if the overs have to be reduced.
According to the circumstances, if there is no situation to bowl even five overs, then reserve day will be used. If the match starts on its own time and rain comes in between and the match cannot be started again, then on reserve day the match will proceed from where it stopped.
