India, led by Rohit Sharma, is set to clash with a struggling Bangladesh in their second Super Eight match of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Saturday. A win is crucial for India to move closer to a spot in the semi-finals, while Bangladesh, led by Najmul Hossain Shanto, also needs a victory to stay in contention for the knockout stage. Despite India’s historical dominance, Bangladesh’s unpredictable nature is a factor Sharma and his team must consider.

After suffering a loss to Australia in their rain-affected Super Eight opener on June 20, Bangladesh faces a quick turnaround, with less than 48 hours before facing India at the same venue. The match against Australia was repeatedly interrupted by rain, leading to a significant reduction in playing time.

What If The India vs Bangladesh Match Is Washed Out?

If the India vs. Bangladesh match is washed out, both teams will receive one point each as there are no reserve days for the Super Eight matches. India, having won their first match against Afghanistan by 47 runs, currently occupies the second position in the points table. Australia is at the top with a better net run rate. A washout would give India one point, putting them at the top of the table. However, their upcoming match against Australia would become crucial, especially if Afghanistan manages to win both of their remaining matches against Australia and Bangladesh.
