The highly anticipated final match between India and South Africa in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 is under the shadow of inclement weather conditions in Barbados. The clash between the two undefeated teams is scheduled to take place at the iconic Kensington Oval in Barbados, which has been a topic of concern due to the unpredictable weather patterns in the Caribbean nation.

Weather forecasts from multiple agencies, including Accuweather and The Weather Channel, indicate a high chance of rain throughout the day on June 29, the scheduled match day. This raises the possibility of the final being pushed to the reserve day, June 30, in case the match cannot be completed on the original date.

As Team India, led by captain Rohit Sharma, arrived in Barbados ahead of the final, the focus has shifted to the weather conditions that could potentially impact the outcome of the match. The Men in Blue secured their spot in the final after a dominant performance against England in the semi-final at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.

If the match between India and South Africa is disrupted by rain on June 29, the ICC has provisions for a reserve day on June 30 to ensure the completion of the final. However, the weather outlook for the reserve day is also uncertain, with similar forecasts predicting continued rainfall and overcast conditions.

With the toss scheduled for 8 PM IST (10 AM local time) on the match day, the looming threat of thunderstorms and rain delays adds an element of unpredictability to the final showdown between India and South Africa. Despite the weather challenges, both teams are gearing up for a historic encounter to determine the ultimate champion of the T20 World Cup 2024.
