Rain could play a spoilsport as India and South Africa take on each other in the T20 World Cup Final at Barbados on June 29.

Both teams have so far been undefeated in the series and would lock horns to bag the 'champion' title.

However, weather predictions for the match which is supposed to start at 8 00pm IST say that the game could be disrupted by rain.

In case the match gets washed out or cannot be completed on Saturday, the same will be played on a 'reserve day' which is Sunday from the point of interruption.

The ICC rules state that, "every effort will be made to complete the match on the scheduled day with any necessary reduction in overs taking place and only if the minimum number of overs necessary to constitute a match cannot be bowled on the scheduled day will the match be completed on the reserve day."

In order to be considered a full match, a minimum of 10 overs have to be bowled to the side batting second. If the match gets interrupted on the scheduled day and no further play is possible, then it will resume on the reserve day from that point.

If the match gets washed out even on the reserve day, both teams will be declared joint winners of the game.

If there is a tie however, the match will go into a super over. Successive super overs will be played till one side wins.
