According to the new rule, if weather interferes with the fixtures and the game is shortened to fewer than 10-overs-a-side, there will be no result. The weather in Australia has not been kind to the teams this season, but there will be a reserve day in case of knock-out stage matches.
Teams from both groups have been competing hard to get to the finals, and as of right now, only one team has secured a position.

The calculators are going for a toss.
