Will the weather play a crucial role in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024 semi-final clash between India and England on Friday? Persistent rain in Guyana threatens to disrupt the match, where India seeks to avenge their 2022 semi-final defeat by England.

Recent weather forecasts from the Caribbean are not promising for the second semi-final. Continuous rain in Guyana for 12 hours has cast doubt on the match proceedings. With rain expected throughout the week and possible thundershowers on the day of the match, there’s a significant risk of interruptions when India takes on England for a spot in the World Cup final on Thursday (IST).

While passing showers might delay the match in the morning, the forecast suggests the toss could happen on time at 9:30 am at Providence Stadium, as no rain is predicted until then. However, the likelihood of rain increases significantly between 10 am and 11 am, potentially causing stoppages, though the weather is expected to clear up from noon onwards.

If the forecast holds, the chances of completing a full match are relatively high.

Rohit Sharma’s Team India has already arrived in Guyana for the much-anticipated semi-final against England. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video showing skipper Rohit, spinner Axar Patel, and other players reaching Guyana.
