In uninterrupted matches, this means that the 20th over should finish within 90 minutes (being 85 minutes of playing time plus 5 minutes of time-out) of the start of the innings. For delayed or interrupted matches where an innings is scheduled to be less than 20 overs, the maximum time of 90 minutes shall be reduced by 4 minutes 15 seconds for every over by which the innings is reduced.”

It also added that while calculating the actual over rate for the match, allowances shall be given as follows: time lost as a result of treatment given to a player by an authorised medical personnel on the field of play; time lost as a result of a player being required to leave the field as a result of a serious injury; time taken for all third umpire referrals and consultations and any umpire or player reviews; time lost as a result of time wasting by the batting side; and The time lost due to all other circumstances that are beyond the control of the fielding side.
