Indian cricket team will have to overcome weather challenges when they take on Bangladesh in the crucial Super 8 clash in the T20 World Cup 2024 in North Sound on Saturday. Rain is likely to play a big role when both teams clash at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua and that is likely to hamper India's position for the semifinal berth.

Rohit Sharma's men continued their unbeaten run this tournament with a 47-run win over Afghanistan in their first Super 8 game. India are facing Bangladesh and Australia in their remaining two games in the Super 8 round and a potential washout may trouble their hopes of finishing in the top two.

According to an AccuWeather report, weather forecasts suggest a 40% chance of precipitation on Saturday. The match is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM and the morning weather suggests thunderstorms and cloudy weather.

Notably, rain interrupted Australia's latest clash against Bangladesh in North Sound on Thursday and forecasts suggest heavy rain throughout the night before India's game against Bangladesh. Australia managed to register an impressive win on a DLS method to take a lead in Group 1 of Super 8.

Both India and Australia remain favourites to reach the semifinal stages from Group 1 as they play comparatively easy fixtures before a mouth-watering face-off against each other in Gros Islet on Monday, June 24. 

For Bangladesh, a potential rain washout will hammer Bangladesh's chances of reaching the semifinal. After an impressive show in the first round, Najmul Shanto's side was restricted to just 140 total in a rain-hit game against Australia. They face Afghanistan in their last Super 8 stage match and even a win might not be enough to earn the last four spot.

India predicted playing XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh.

Bangladesh predicted playing XI: Tanzid Hasan, Litton Das (wk), Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Shakib Al Hasan, Towhid Hridoy, Mahmudullah, Mahedi Hasan, Rishad Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Mustafizur Rahman.
