Is there a Reserve Day?

Contrary to the first semi-final in Trinidad, the India vs. England semi-final in Guyana does not have a reserve day planned. Nonetheless, an additional 250 minutes have been set aside to try and conclude the match if rain causes interruptions. This allowance is aimed at maximizing the chances of getting a result despite potential weather disturbances.

Outcome if match gets washed out

In the event that rain completely prevents any play in the India vs. England semi-final, the Men in Blue will advance to the T20 World Cup final. This decision is based on India’s superior performance in the Super 8 stage, where they topped their group by defeating Australia in their final match. England, having finished second in their group behind South Africa, would be eliminated. Thus, if the weather does not permit any play, India’s campaign in the T20 World Cup 2024 will continue into the final.
