Here's how to watch the India vs England 2024 T20 World Cup semi-final online from anywhere, with the winners facing South Africa, who thrashed Afghanistan. It's a game that promises to be fantastic, assuming the weather plays ball (more on that later!).

Quick links

The two biggest and arguably most entertaining teams of the tournament face each other at the Guyana National Stadium in Guyana. India were superb in beating Australia by 24 runs to make this semi-final, with Rohit Sharma at one stage looking like he might score the fastest-ever century in the format. He ended up on 92 and India's batting looks awesome and that's despite Virat Kohli being totally out of form.

As for England, they looked like they were heading out of the tournament after being defeated by Australia. However, they've roared back to life and now look dangerous themselves. Jos Buttler smashed 83 not out from 38 deliveries against the USA and although India's bowling attack is a lot stronger, in this form Buttler can destroy any attack.

However, it might be ruined by the weather. The latest forecast What to Watch has seen predicts there's a lot of rain on the way but things do brighten up later in the day hopefully allowing for play.

India would go through in the event of there being no result as they topped their Super 8s pool and there's no reserve day to get the match played. OK, fair enough you'd think but hang on the other semi-final had a reserve day! Quite how you can have semi-finals with different playing conditions is a shocker and a massive question mark over the organization of the tournament. 

According to the ICC rules, the game must be at least 10 overs a side to be a match. "Each team must have had the opportunity to bat for a minimum of ten (10) overs for a result to be achieved," states the rules.

Let's hope the sun's out and here's how to watch the match...
