Srinagar: Asian Cricket Council President and BCCI Secretary Jay Shah has predicted the semifinalist teams of the T20 World Cup 2024.

According to Shah, India, Australia, New Zealand West Indies will book their spot in the final four.

“India, Australia, New Zealand and the hosts, West Indies, because they are good in T20,” Shah was quoted as saying by the Times of India.

Earlier, West Indies legend Brian Lara had predicted the semi-finalists and finalists of the World Cup.

“The West Indies should do well. They have a lot of individual stars and when they come together as a team, they do well. India, with all their cry over selection, they find themselves in the top four. England, they seem to enjoy Caribbean a lot, lay on the beach a lot, so they will be there. For the fourth spot, I think Afghanistan. They are capable of getting into the four,” Lara told Press Trust of India.

He is also keen on seeing the final being played between India and the West Indies.

“India and West Indies final is going to make up for so much wrong that has happened in the past. India missing out in 2007 in second round, that killed us in the Caribbean. We don’t want that to happen again. So, India and West Indies in the final and may the best team win,” Lara added.

55 games will be played across nine different venues in West Indies and the United States (US) from June 1 in the World Cup.

The venues in West Indies are Kensington Oval, Barbados; Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Trinidad; Providence Stadium, Guyana; Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua; Darren Sammy Cricket Ground, St Lucia; Arnos Vale Stadium, St Vincent.

Meanwhile, three venues will hold the matches in the United States — Eisenhower Park, New York; Lauderhill, Florida; and Grand Prairie, Texas.
