- India will Netherlands at the SCG on Thursday
- The match was originally scheduled to start at 12:30 PM
- The SCG is also host to the South Africa vs Bangladesh clash
The India vs Netherlands match in the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 World Cup Super-12 stage is all set for delay at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). The SCG, which will play host to India vs Netherlands clash on Thursday afternoon (India Time) is already scheduled for South Africa vs Bangladesh match and in all likelihood would end after the scheduled time due to rain delays. The India vs Netherlands clash which was due to start at 12:30 PM IST with the toss taking place at 12:00 PM IST, will now be delayed.
South Africa vs Bangladesh delays India vs South Netherlands
As things stand, the SCG which is host to India vs Netherlands clash will only begin at the conclusion of the current contest between South Africa and Bangladesh. South Africa vs Bangladesh clash had a couple of delays due to rain, which saw considerable time wasted. At the time of writing the Bangladesh were yet to begin their innings with the scheduled toss just 90 minutes away.

When will India vs Netherlands match start?
If there are no more delays in the clash between South Africa vs Bangladesh clash, then India vs Netherlands contest will start not before 12:30 PM IST. The Bangladesh innings started at 10:50 AM, and will likely take 90 minutes to finish without any delays which could force the match to last until 12:30 PM IST.
The toss for India vs Netherlands will only take place after that, meaning the match will be delayed. A similar incident happened on Wednesday when New Zealand vs Afghanistan match was also delayed due to the late conclusion of the previous match at the MCG between England and Ireland.
What is the Weather Forecast?
As things stand, the weather is good to go for a cricket match as the Bangladesh innings had sunshine. The kind weather could pave way for an entire match to take place with the weather forecast also showing good news for the fans with minimum rain expected in Sydney on Thursday afternoon.
The new ICC rule also states that there should be a 30-minute gap between the two matches so it is all but clear that the match will be delayed at the SCG.
