T20 World Cup, Kingstown, St Vincent weather update: What will happen if Afghanistan vs Bangladesh match is washed out |

NEW DELHI: With the race for the final T20 World Cup semi-final spot in Group 1 going down to the wire, all eyes are on the last Super 8 stage match of the tournament between Afghanistan and Bangladesh scheduled for Tuesday at the Arnos Vale Ground, Kingstown in Saint Vincent.
After India beat Australia by 24 runs in St Lucia on Monday to seal the semis spot, the Afghanistan-Bangladesh encounter becomes a virtual quarter-final for the Afghans as they need to beat Bangla Tigers to set up semis with Group 2 toppers South Africa.
India will now play defending champions England in Thursday’s semi-final in Guyana.
Apart from the skills and strategies of the players and teams, weather conditions play a significant role in the outcome of cricket matches.
According to AccuWeather, the upcoming high-stakes encounter between Afghanistan and Bangladesh may be disrupted by severe thunderstorms, with the temperature ranging between 25-32 degrees Celsius, adding to the challenging conditions the players will face.
Expect considerable cloudiness during the entire match, with the sky obscured by clouds approximately 58% of the time. Moreover, there is a 41% likelihood of rain, and the anticipated amount of rainfall is estimated to be around 1.5 mm.
All in all, a typical Caribbean weather is in store during the game on Tuesday.
If the game happens to end in a no-result because of a washout, then Afghanistan will finish second in Group 2 with three points and qualify for the semis. The reigning ODI champions Australia will be knocked out of the tournament.
In case Bangladesh beat Afghanistan, then all the three teams, including Australia, will end up on two points with NRR coming into play. Bangladesh, who still have an outside chance mathematically, need to beat Afghanistan with a huge margin to stand any chance whatsoever to make it to the semis while Australia’s fate is hanging by a thread.
South Africa, unbeaten in the tournament, have qualified alongside England for the semi-finals from Group 1. The two co-hosts West Indies and USA have been eliminated.
