Cricket/Power play


How are you, sir? I'm back with another question. What my question is that in an innings of scheduled duration between 41 and 50 overs,the second block of power play may not be completed later than the 40th over.If this is the condition, what would be the conditions of second block of power play in matches of 35 overs or 40 overs?

Dear Amul Sena,
         i am fine and how are you ? thanx for asking me that,your's is a brilliant question.actually that depends on the duration of the match but i dont remember clearly that i saw in a match between australia and england that rain delayed the match and it was brought down to 41 overs and then the batting power play was taken between 31-36 overs(not so clear because it depend on various occasions and it is calculated by various reasons).a match refree or an international umpire would know that better.
