World Cup 2023 Semi Finals: The semi-final matches of the One Day International (ODI) World Cup 2023 will be held on November 15 and 16. These matches will feature teams from India, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.

The four semifinalists for the World Cup 2023 are India, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. The first semi-final match of the tournament will be contested between India and New Zealand. Meanwhile, in the second semi-final, South Africa and Australia will clash. If any of these matches is affected by rain, let’s explore what the scenario would be.

ICC Rules for Semi-Final Matches: The match between India and New Zealand is scheduled for November 15 at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. On the other hand, the second semi-final will take place on November 16 at Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata. It’s worth noting that ICC has kept reserve days for these semi-final matches and the final. In case rain interrupts the semi-final clashes, the matches may be rescheduled on the reserve day.

If Rain Persists on the Reserve Day: In the event that rain persists on the reserve day, and the match cannot be completed, the decision on which team advances to the final will be determined by their positions in the league stage points table. The team positioned higher in the points table will proceed to the final. In this context, if the India-New Zealand match is canceled, Team India, being at the top of the points table, will advance to the final. Similarly, in the Australia-South Africa semi-final, the advantage will go to the African team as they hold the number 2 spot in the points table.

Weather Forecast for Both Semi-Final Matches: According to reports, there is only a 1% chance of rain during the India-New Zealand match in Mumbai on November 15. Therefore, there seems to be no significant threat of rain affecting this match. Similarly, the weather forecast for Kolkata on November 16, where the Australia-South Africa match is scheduled, is clear, with only a 2% chance of rain.
