Daren Sammy Stadium in St Lucia is all set to host the IND vs AUS T20 World Cup Super 8 match on Monday, June 24. The match starts at 8 pm IST which is 10.30 am local time. This is the first meeting between the two games in this tournament.

St Lucia has hosted a few high-scoring games in this tournament. Australia have already played a game against Scotland in this venue where they chased 180 to win.

The venue has hosted some enticing games and if the weather stays good we are in for another close contest. India and South Africa are the only two unbeaten teams in the tournament so far. Afghanistan earned a historic win against Australia in the previous match by 21 runs.

This was their first win against the Aussies in international cricket. The loss has put Australia in a precarious position heading into their last Super 8 match against India.

The winning streak is expected to end for one of these two teams. Such is the format of the tournament that even one loss is enough to knock the team out of the tournament. This is what makes this clash such a riveting contest.

India have won 19 out of the 31 T20I matches against Australia. However, Australia have the edge over India in ICC events.

Weather Impact on IND vs AUS, T20 World Cup 2024, Super 8 Group 1

There is a forecast of rain in this crucial IND vs AUS match. India already played a rained-out contest against Canada earlier in the Group stage.

They can ill-afford another washout which will deny them a chance to get two full points. The same goes with Australia who have already won a match DLS against Bangladesh. There is a decent chance that rain might play spoilsport.

India and Australia along with South Africa are the two unbeaten teams in the tournament so far. If we get a match, the winning run for one of the two teams will end in this contest.
