T20 World Cup: India to play semifinal in Guyana if they reach last-four stage | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: India will participate in the second semifinal match of the T20 World Cup, which will take place in Guyana on June 27, provided they advance to the last four stage of the tournament.
According to the ICC‘s playing conditions for the showpiece in the USA and Caribbean, a reserve day has been allocated exclusively for the final, scheduled to be held in Barbados on June 29.
The governing body has not made provisions for reserve days for any other matches in the tournament.
“If India qualifies for the semi-finals, they will play in the second semi-final scheduled for Guyana on the 27 June 2024,” stated the playing conditions.
The scheduling decision was made based on the timing of the semifinals in Trinidad and Guyana. The first semifinal in Trinidad on June 26 will take place at night, whereas the knockout game in Guyana will be a day match, which is better suited for the Indian TV audience.
The second semifinal will start at 8.30 PM IST and will have an added time of 250 minutes if the game is impacted by weather. The added time for the first semifinal will be applied over two days.
“The Final on 29 June will have a reserve day on 30 June. The semi-finals will each have additional time added in order to complete the match which will total 250 minutes.
“For the first semi-final on 26 June, 60 minutes will be available at the end of the day’s play with the remaining 190 minutes scheduled for 2pm on 27 June.
“Whilst the additional 250 minutes for the second semi-final scheduled on 27 June will be utilised if needed through extended playing hours on the scheduled day,” according to the playing conditions.
India will be aiming to win an elusive ICC trophy and they will begin their campaign against Ireland in New York on June 5 before taking on arch-rivals Pakistan at the same venue on June 9.
