What happens if rain washes out the India vs England T20 World Cup 2024 semi-final?

The International Cricket Council (ICC) hasn’t scheduled a Reserve Day for this semi-final. However, the India vs England match will get approximately 4 extra hours to complete. A 10-over-per-side contest is required to obtain a result from the match.

If either of the two sides fails to bat for 10 overs, the match will be considered abandoned. A washout would lead to Team India’s progression into the final while England will be knocked out, based on the results the two sides obtained during the group stage of the campaign.
