It's that time of year again the T20 Final Day is nearly here and cricket fans across the country will be heading to Edgbaston for Saturday's game.

There's just one problem...the classic British weather is not playing ball.

Strong winds are predicted to batter Britain this weekend, bringing a blustery end to the recent sunny spells we've been enjoying.

The Met Office has also issued a yellow weather warning for parts of the West Midlands and heavy, blustery showers are expected.

So what happens if conditions are too bad to play?

Every effort is made to complete tomorrow and games can go to five overs per side if required. But Sunday is the designated reserve day if the worst happens.

If it happens, it would be a first in the history of the stadium as the reserve day has never been needed for a T20 final in the past.

However, during the 90s a fair amount of one-day finals at Lord’s had to be finished on the Sunday due to the weather preventing play.

So what happens if you've already got a ticket for the game on Saturday?

According to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) if due to adverse weather conditions, 10 overs or fewer are bowled on the day, a full refund will be issued for the match ticket value.

If more than 10 but fewer than 25 overs are bowled on the day of the final when the weather is bad a 50% refund is possible for the match ticket value.
