India vs Australia T20 World Cup Match Faces Heavy Rain Threat

The highly anticipated T20 World Cup match between India and Australia, scheduled for today at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, is under threat from heavy rain. Weather forecasts indicate a high likelihood of rain and storms throughout the day, which could potentially lead to the cancellation of the match.

If the match is canceled, India, currently leading their group, will benefit by securing a spot in the semifinals with 5 points. Australia, however, will face a challenging situation, needing to rely on the outcomes of other matches to advance.

Heavy rain expected in Gross Islet

But before this, bad news is coming for the fans. Heavy rain is expected in Gross Islet today. According to the Meteorological Department, rain and storm are expected in Gross Islet on June 24.

There is a possibility of 51 percent rain around 10 am local time. In such a situation, if this rain continues for a long time, then the match may have to be canceled. If this happens, then which team will suffer more, and who will benefit, let’s know…

The Indian team will benefit if the match is canceled

Let us tell you that no reserve day has been kept for the Super-8 matches. In such a situation, if the match has to be canceled due to rain or any other reason, then 1-1 points will be divided between the two teams. In such a situation, the Indian team will secure its place in the semi-finals by topping Group 1 with 5 points.

While Australia will face difficulties

But Australia will be in trouble after gaining one point. It will have a total of 3 points. In such a situation, it will have to depend on the result of the Afghanistan vs Bangladesh match. If the Afghanistan team wins this match, it will enter the semi-finals with 4 points.

Then Australia will be eliminated. If the Bangladesh team defeats Afghanistan in this match, both of them will be eliminated. In that case, the Australian team will enter the semi-finals with 3 points. In that case, the Afghanistan team will be eliminated with 2 points.
