India will take on Canada in their last group match on Saturday There is a possibility of rain in this match to be played in Lauderhill

New Delhi. India and Canada will clash on Saturday in the T20 World Cup 2024. The match will be played in Lauderhill, Florida, 1850 km from New York. Before the Super 8, the Indian team would like to test the bench strength in its last league match. However, all eyes will be on Virat Kohli. Virat came out to open in three matches in this World Cup and failed with the bat in all three. It remains to be seen whether Virat's luck will change after changing the city? The Indian team played all its first three matches in New York. However, the match to be played between India and Canada is also under the threat of rain. It has been raining continuously in many parts of Florida for the last few days. Emergency has been declared in many places.

With three wins in three matches, India (IND vs CAN) has already made it to the Super Eight stage. The Indian team will now play its Super 8 matches in the West Indies. Kohli came to the T20 World Cup after scoring more than 700 runs at a strike rate of over 150 for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, but failed to perform well in the initial matches. He has now scored only 5 runs in three matches at an average of 1.66, including a 'golden duck' (getting out on the first ball without opening the account) against the US.

Was disappointed for not getting a chance in IPL, but created havoc as soon as he came to the World Cup, played a big role in taking the team to Super 8

Will Virat Kohli's luck change?
Hopefully he will once again perform well in the ICC event which is probably his last chance to win another ICC title for India after 13 years. The Indian team has reached Florida after traveling 1850 kilometers from New York and it is expected that with the change of city, Kohli's luck will also change. The pitch of Broward County Stadium may not help the bowlers as much as New York where the pitch had uneven bounce and due to the slow outfield, there was more talk about the ground and the pitch than cricket.

However, the pressure on Virat Kohli will be reduced to some extent by the fact that his poor performance has not affected the team's performance. However, due to the early dismissal of Kohli, who opens the innings with captain Rohit Sharma, the team is not getting a good start and the pressure is building on the batsmen coming later. However, batsmen like Rishabh Pant and Suryakumar Yadav have been largely successful in compensating for Kohli's poor performance. Pant played an important role in India's victory in both these matches by scoring 36 and 42 runs against Ireland and England respectively. Suryakumar Yadav recovered from a poor start to the tournament and scored an important half-century against the USA. Shivam Dubey also scored 31 runs off 35 balls against the co-host team, due to which he is expected to be preferred over Sanju Samson and Yashasvi Jaiswal once again.

If Jaiswal gets a chance, Virat will have to bat at number three
If India gives Jaiswal a chance, he will open the innings and in such a situation Kohli will have to return to his number three position. Indian batsmen may have struggled on the 'drop in pitches' of New York, but its bowlers performed brilliantly on these wickets. The trio of Jasprit Bumrah (5 wickets), Hardik Pandya (7 wickets) and Arshdeep Singh (7 wickets) constantly troubled the opposition batsmen. The performance of Pandya and Arshdeep is a matter of relief for the team management as both of them failed in the IPL.

Kuldeep or Chahal may get a chance
However, the team will expect better performances from Mohammad Siraj (one wicket) and Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja has not got a single wicket yet. The Indian team may think of giving a chance to Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal or both against Canada. In such a situation, India may have to give a break to Jadeja and Axar Patel. Axar has performed well with both the ball and the bat. This will give the bowling unit a chance to prepare for the Caribbean pitches where the pitches are expected to help the spinners more.

It is not easy for Canada to defeat India
On the other hand, Canada has shown its potential with a 12-run win against Ireland. Players like opener Aaron Johnson are capable of surprising the opposing team. However, it will not be easy for the Canadian batsmen to defeat the strong Indian team. However, the match is likely to be disrupted due to rain. Lauderhill is about 50 kilometers away from Miami, which is facing flooding due to tropical storm. This is a matter of concern for the tournament organizers who are hoping to make a place for cricket in the American market.
