Persistent rain since morning has delayed the toss between India and England in the first semifinal of the Women’s T20 World Cup, here on Thursday.
To complete a 10 over a side match, the toss must be held by 4.36pm local time (11:06am IST) and play must commence by 4.51pm (11:21am IST).
In case the match is not held due to bad weather, India will qualify for the summit clash, courtesy their superior record in the group stage.
India are unbeaten in the tournament thus far winning all four of their matches.
If the second semi-final between South Africa and Australia is also washed out then the Proteas will advance to the final since they topped their group. The second semi-final is scheduled to begin after the India-England match at the same venue.
The International Cricket Council had yeaterday (Wednesday) turned down a request from Cricket Australia to keep Friday as a reserve day for the semi-finals.
If a semi-final is washed out, team with better points or run rate at the league stage will move into the final.
