Today's T20 World Cup match preview

Australia v India, Super Eights
Where: Daren Sammy Cricket Ground, Gros Islet, Saint Lucia
When: June 24, 10:30 am local time

Afghanistan’s win against Australia opened up Group 1: all four teams now stand with a chance to qualify for the semi-finals. Still unbeaten in the tournament, a win will take India through. Even if they lose, a narrow margin of defeat should keep them safe, owing to their superior net run rate of +2.425.

However, India would be wary of the second semi-final having no reserve day if they qualify, the team that finishes at the top of the table will advance to the final in case of a washout. In that case, a win here is of utmost importance to them.

Australia, on the other hand, jeopardised their semi-final path, at least partly, due to their demoralising defeat against Afghanistan. The simplest for them to qualify is to win against India and hope Bangladesh beat Afghanistan. Any other scenarios would need them to rely on net run rate.

Pitch report and ground conditions

Saint Lucia has been by far the best track to bat on in this World Cup. The five matches here have seen first-innings scores of 180, 201, 218, 180 and 163. The boundary dimensions here are uneven, with an almost 10-metre difference between the square boundaries (63m versus 72m). Rain could play a spoilsport.
