The coverage is scheduled to wrap up at 5pm (AEDT) on Saturday, and 7pm (AEDT) on Sunday, however, this will be dependent on the length of matches and number of matches required on the Sunday to determine an outcome to the tie, keeping in mind the first nation to three matches will take home the victory.
