As per reports, all participating teams will now play 14 matches (7 each day) instead of 18 to conclude the tournament in time. However, there has been no official announcement from the organizers regarding any changes to the matches and format.

It is currently unknown how the technical issue will affect the tournament. No one knows if the tournament will run for the remaining duration with some adjustments or will see some more drastic changes like a date extension or a full postponement.

The issues also reflect upon the organizers as many fans start flaming them for not properly testing this kind of thing beforehand. Fans hope that the event will run for its full length, with the date extended, as it will give all teams a chance to perform well.
