The highly anticipated second semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2024 between India and England is under threat from the weather as the teams prepare to face off in Guyana. The match, scheduled for June 27, could be severely impacted by rain, with forecasts predicting a significant chance of showers throughout the day.

According to AccuWeather, there is a 90% chance of rain during the game, with the possibility of thunderstorms. The BBC Weather forecast also predicts “thundery showers and light winds” for the day, with a 70% chance of rain at noon, the highest for any point during the day. This weather poses a significant challenge for both teams, as well as the tournament organizers.

In the event that the match is washed out, India will advance to the final by virtue of finishing higher than England in the Super Eight pool. The tournament has provisions for 250 extra minutes to try and complete the game if rain affects play, but there is no reserve day for this match.
