T20 World Cup 2024: Rain Threat Looms Over Crucial India vs Australia Super 8s Clash

Saint Lucia: As Team India gears up to face Australia in a crucial Super Eights match at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, heavy rain in St Lucia has raised concerns. India, currently leading Group 1 with victories over Afghanistan and Bangladesh, aims to secure a semi-final spot in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Weather forecasts predict significant rain during the India vs Australia match, set to begin at 8 PM IST.

A washout would benefit India, guaranteeing their semi-final berth while putting Australia in a precarious position with just three points. In this scenario, Australia would need a washout or a Bangladesh win in the Afghanistan vs Bangladesh match to advance.

A Bangladesh victory would eliminate Afghanistan, with Australia advancing on net run rate if both matches are washed out.

Despite zero points and a -2.489 net run rate, Bangladesh can still make the semi-finals. They need a decisive win against Afghanistan and an Indian victory over Australia to advance, improving their net run rate to surpass both Afghanistan and Australia.

South Africa and England have already secured their semi-final spots, leaving Group 1 teams India, Australia, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh vying for the remaining two places.
