The Afghanistan cricket team defeated Australia on June 22nd in the Super 8s of the T20 World Cup 2024. This upset changed the complexion of the semifinal scenario.

The Australian cricket team needs a win to stay in the race for the semi-final round. However, there is one more hurdle in the way – the weather. The IND vs AUS match is scheduled to take place at St Lucia, which has seen heavy rain and the threat of it occurring during the game looms large this crucial game. If that happens there is a chance that the game may get washed out.

So what happens when the IND vs AUS match is washed out?

Well, if the match gets washed out then both des shall get a point each. For India, it will mean automatic qualification for the semi-final round as the Men in Blue just need one point to qualify. On the other hand, the Australian cricket team will hope Bangladesh can do them a favor by beating Afghanistan.

If Afghanistan defeats Bangladesh, they’ll reach four points, keeping Australia at three. Australia would then be eliminated, and Afghanistan would reach the semifinals for the first time. If the match between Bangladesh and Afghanistan is washed out, Afghanistan and Australia would be tied on points. Australia’s superior Net Run Rate gives them the edge in that scenario.

Both India and Australia will hope the rain stays away.
