India vs Canada Live Score: Match Abandoned

CALLED OFF!

Unfortunately, we will not get to see India in action today, as the match has been abandoned due to wet outfield. The groundstaff in Florida did all they could to get the outfield prepared, using hair dryers, but after the incessant downpour over the last few days, it was just not meant to be.

India vs Canada Live Score: Will Weather Gods Allow India To Make It 4 Wins in 4?

India vs Canada Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024: India are already through to the Super 8. The focus has already shifted to the Caribbean leg, where in Barbados on 20 June, Rohit Sharma's team will face on a high-flying Afghanistan team. The discourse currently pertains to the team combination for the Super 8 – Which spinner will be included in the playing XI? Which seamer will make way?

Amid all that, India will be taking on Canada in their last Group A match of the tournament. The entourage has moved from New York to Florida, and after eliminating Pakistan from Super 8 contention by playing spoilsport in yesterday's match between the USA and Ireland, rain has held up, and we might get a game today, even if it is not a full 40-over match.

Like always, we will be bringing you live updates.
