The T20 World Cup 2024 Semi-final matches are under the threat of getting washed out owing to inclement weather in the Caribbean.

India vs England Semi-Final: The ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 has been amidst constant criticism for its scheduling, which has hampered as many as seven fixtures so far, including the 5 complete wash-outs. Now as we head to the all-important semi-final fixtures of the T20 World Cup 2024, concerns have risen as rain gods once again pose a serious threat to both the matches in the Caribbean. There is a whopping 76 per cent chance of showers during the India vs England fixture, the first semi-final between South Africa and Afghanistan is also a constant danger.

Notably, Rohit Sharma-led Team India takes on Jos Buttler’s England at the Providence Stadium in Guyana for the Semi-final 2 on June 27. India sealed a semi-final berth following their dominating run in the group stage and Super8s. England, on the other hand, got a beating against South Africa during the Super8s on their way to the semis of the T20 World Cup 2024.

The IND vs ENG fixture is being seen as a rematch of the 2022 T20 World Cup semi-final, held in Australia. Buttler’s England convincingly handed a 10-wicket defeat to India at the Adelaide Oval to qualify for the Finals and eventually won it against Pakistan to lift their maiden T20 World Cup title in 2022.

This time around, the setting is perfect for the Men in Blue to avenge the humiliating loss and hand a similar result to England in Guyana.

The contest is set to begin at 8:00 PM IST, which is a day game as per the local time zone on June 27.

Unfortunately, no reserve day is in place for the India vs England clash on June 27. Unlike the semi-final 1, which has a dedicated reserve day, the India vs England has to be completed on the same day as per the schedule.

In case of rain interruptions, the fixture is allotted an additional 250 minutes of time to complete the game. The officials can use it at their discretion as per the requirement.

If no play is possible even after the exhaustion of the additional 250 minutes of time and the fixture results in a no-result, the team finishing higher in the Super 8 points table will proceed to the Finals.

In this case, it will be Rohit Sharma-led Team India that will be through to the finals against Jos Buttler’s England.

In case of a tie, the Super Over will decide the winner of the contest. In case, Super Over couldn’t be held due to any unavoidable circumstances, the team finishing higher in the points table will progress.
