What will happen if IND vs ENG semi-final 2 gets washed out? Explained:


The Indian Cricket Team on Monday, 24th June successfully qualified for the semifinal of ICC’s Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 after defeating Australia in their final Super Eight fixture at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground in St Lucia.

It was yet another phenomenal display from Rohit Sharma and his boys, who secured a hard fought victory over the mighty Aussies by a margin of 24 runs and guaranteed their place in the semi-finals of the tournament.

Now that the semi finalists have been confirmed, the fixtures have been confirmed as well and the Rohit Sharma-led team will be locking horns against reigning champions England in the second semifinal of the 2024 T20 World Cup on 27th of June, 8:30 PM IST at Guyana’s Providence Stadium.

It’s going to be a repeat of the 2022 T20 World Cup’s semi final where England and India faced each other and the former ended up getting the better of the latter on that occasion. The upcoming clash between the two rivals promises to be a really exciting and intense contest and the Men in Blue would be looking to avenge their humiliating T20 World Cup 2022 defeat against the Jos Buttler-led team.

However, the upcoming intense semi final encounter between the two rivals is facing the threat of getting interrupted by constant rainfall predicted on the day of the match.

If the second semi final between England and India ends up getting abandoned due to rain, then the regulations set by the International Cricket Council (ICC) will decide the outcome of the match.

The match is scheduled to start at 10:30am local-time (8:00 PM IST) and if the rain continues to last throughout the day, then the tournament organisers have been given the permission to wait till the evening period to see if the match can take place and a result can be guaranteed. Due to Broadcasting and logistics reasons, the second semi final between India and England has not been allotted any reserve day by the ICC.

If the contest gets washed out without a single delivery being bowled, then 2007 winners India will be declared as the winners and will automatically qualify for the final of ICC’s Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. This result will be determined on the basis of the Men in Blue’s better Super eight performance as they finished at the top of Group number one while Jos Buttler and his men finished at the second position of Group number two.
