Weather Forecast in Super 8: Rain has become a major talking point in the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 after a string of matches resulted in a complete wash-out during the group stages. Three of the four matches scheduled in Florida were spoiled due to inclement weather, which also became a key reason for Pakistan’s elimination from the event.

So far, at the end of the group stages, rain has impacted five fixtures in the ongoing edition of the T20 World Cup with four of them being a complete wash-out.

Notably, there seems to be no respite in the unfavourable weather conditions as the tournament proceeds to the next round in the next few days. The weather forecast for the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 remains concerning with almost all matches having some chances of wash-out.

As many as 12 matches will be held in the Super 8 stage on the Caribbean island – Barbados, St Lucia, Antigua and St Vincent.
