The four teams for the semi-finals of T20 World Cup 2024 have been decided. In the semi-finals, four teams Team India, England, South Africa and Afghanistan will face each other. The first match will be played between South Africa and Afghanistan on June 27, while the second semi-final match will be between Team India and England. The semi-final matches will be held tomorrow. However, before that, the series of controversies continues outside the field. Media groups of UK and Australia have alleged that the International Cricket Council (ICC) is giving priority to TV viewers in India. At the center of these controversies is the schedule of the semi-final matches. If it rains during the Afghanistan vs South Africa match, then a reserve day has been kept. But if it rains during the India vs England match, then there is no reserve day for that. The India-England match will be played in Guyana, West Indies.

Guyana currently has a rainy climate. There is a possibility of rain during tomorrow’s semi-final match between Team India and England. There is a possibility of rain changing the course of the entire match. Although no ball could be played due to rain, Team India had won all its three matches in the Super-8 stage. On that basis, Team India will qualify for the final. That is why the ICC is being criticized by the British media. The venue and time of India’s semi-final match was already fixed. British media Daily Mail alleged that the match was given priority so that more and more viewers from India could watch it. The Daily Mail said that TV viewers in South Asia were given more priority than organizational integrity.

India is dominating

Australian publication ‘The Roar’ also said the same thing. They drew attention to the schedule of the matches, morning and late night matches. ‘The Roar’ said that the matches were organized in this way keeping in mind the Indian audience. It said that this strategy reflects the influence of India’s economic power on the ICC. Earlier, the ICC was dominated by England and Australia. But in the last few years, India’s dominance has increased. This is natural, because today the most money in international cricket comes from India.
