Rain Threatens to Wash Out India vs Canada Clash!

India vs Canada T20 World Cup

The much-anticipated clash between India and Canada in the T20 World Cup is hanging in the balance due to heavy rains that drenched the Lauderhill outfield the night before. With the ground already saturated and more rain forecast, the chances of the match happening seem slim. This would be a real disappointment, especially for Canada, who were hoping to end their tournament on a high.

India, already qualified for the Super Eights alongside the USA, is looking to finish their Group A campaign on a winning note. Their last outing was a nail-biter against the USA, where they chased down a modest target after some early jitters caused by some brilliant bowling from Saurabh Netravalkar.

Canada, on the other hand, saw their hopes of progressing dashed after a loss to Pakistan. While they did manage a win against Ireland, their inability to defend a decent total against the USA ended their World Cup journey.

The biggest worry for the organizers is the weather. Two matches scheduled at the same venue have already been abandoned due to rain, and with the forecast predicting more showers, the India-Canada encounter might face the same fate.

The pitch at Lauderhill, which typically sees scores around the 165 mark, could also behave differently due to the recent downpour. The dampness could lead to a slower surface that might favor the spinners.
