India's Super Eight clash against Australia in St. Lucia is under threat from the weather, with rain set to fall on Monday morning (June 24).

India v Australia Super Eights: Latest weather updates

Five hours ahead of the match, the forecast in St. Lucia remains grim. Local reporters have warned that there could be intermittent showers at the ground, and the weather overhead remains cloudy.

India have been supreme so far in the T20 World Cup having won all five of their completed matches so far, including both of their Super Eight games – against Bangladesh and Afghanistan.

Rohit Sharma's side are not yet assured of a place in the semi-finals but it would require some turnaround – a loss to Australia, a win for Afghanistan over Bangladesh and a significiant net run tate swing – for them to miss out on a last four berth.

Australia, meanwhile, are right up against it after their defeat to Afghanistan on Saturday night. After two rounds of action, Australia are level on points with Afghanistan and have a superior net run rate. But if Australia fail to beat India and Afghanistan pick up a win against Bangladesh, the 2021 champions will be out of the tournament.

A washout in the India-Australia game could therefore spell the end for Australia's campaign.

What is the St. Lucia weather forecast for India-Australia?
