How many overs are required to bowl to avoid reserve day in the final of World T20 2014?

I see a day reserve day in Cricinfo fixtures.

  • I think world T20i is different from world cup. Anyway, the tag can be used for world T20i. Mar 28, 2014 at 9:00

Reserve day is used only if the match is not completed even after applying the D/L method. So if it is not possible to complete full quota of the innings (i.e. 20 overs in T20 matches), the D/L method is applied which requires minimum 5 overs to be played per side in T20 matches.

That means if both teams play minimum 5 overs each, the match will be completed and the reserve day will be avoided.
