The semi-final matches are compressed into quarterfinal matches 1-3 (March 20) and 2-4 (March 21).
According to the information announced by the WBC Organizing Committee on its website, if Japan advances to the quarterfinals regardless of the group stage performance in the first round of the finals, it will unconditionally play two quarterfinal matches against the countries in Group A on March 16th.
If the Japanese baseball team takes 1st place in Group B, they will compete for 2nd place in Group A and the semifinals on March 16 at Tokyo Dome, Japan, as originally scheduled.
If you place 2nd in Group B, originally, you will have a match against the 1st place in Group A on March 15th in the quarterfinals, but according to the changed clause, you will face off against the 1st place in Group A on March 16th.
