The ICC T20 World Cup 2024 tournament is in full swing at the moment. Today, on Monday, June 24, when the Super-8 match will take place between India and Australia, crores of Indians will have only one word in their minds – change. Revenge for November 19, the day when millions of Indians were heartbroken when Australia defeated India in the World Cup final in Ahmedabad. Now the Indian team has a good chance to defeat Australia in today’s match and knock them out of the tournament, so the pain of November 19 will be reduced a bit. But whether the Indian team will get that chance today or not will depend on the weather in St. Lucia.

This is the last match of both the teams in this round. After winning 2 matches in a row, Team India is in the top position and is very close to the semi-finals. At the same time, it was believed that the Australian team would also reach the semi-finals, but the defeat against Afghanistan was a shock for them and their morale was broken. In such a situation, if they have to reach the semi-finals, then they will have to defeat the Indian team in today’s match and win the match. If the Australian team loses today’s match, then their challenge in this tournament will end. But they are more stressed about today’s weather than the defeat.

What will the weather be like in Saint Lucia?

The match between the two teams is to be played at Gros Islet ground in St. Lucia, but the weather in the city is not good, so anything can happen. A day before the match, on Sunday, the city received heavy rain and it is expected to rain till late night. The match will be played from 10.30 am St. Lucia time, but it may also be interrupted due to rain in the morning. According to the weather department report, there is a possibility of rain between 7 am and 9 am and if this happens, it will be difficult for the match to start on time. Even if it does not rain after that, whether the ground will be suitable for playing the match is also a big question.

What happens if the match is cancelled?

There is no reserve day for matches in Super 8. In such a situation, if it rains today, then there is no reserve day for the Team India-Australia match. Even if today’s match is canceled due to rain, it will not make any difference to the Indian team, on the contrary, even if they do not play, they will easily get a ticket to the semi-finals. If the match is canceled, then both the teams will be given 1-1 point. After this, the Indian team will have a total of 5 points. But this will increase Australia’s headache. Because if they win this match, they will get 2 points but if the match is canceled, they will get only 1 point. In such a situation, if Afghanistan defeats Bangladesh in the next match, then it will reach the semi-finals and Australia will be directly out of the tournament. So now if it rains today, then the fans’ attention is on whether they will be able to watch the match between the Indian team and Australia.
