The Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup 2024 is set to commence from June 19 in Antigua. India, USA, Australia, England, Afghanistan, West Indies, South Africa and Bangladesh are the eight teams who have qualified for the tournament's next phase.

Teams will play three matches each during the Super 8 phase, with the top two sides in each group qualifying for the semi-final stage of the event.

Team India qualified for the Super 8 as Group A toppers with seven points. The USA (five points) were the second team to qualify from the Group. The Rohit Sharma-led team's last Group A league match against Canada was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to a wet outfield in Florida on Saturday.

Here is all you need to know regarding the Indian team's Super 8 schedule, group, match timings and more:

India Wind Up T20 WC Group Stage Positively

The Indian team will travel to the Caribbean as a confident unit after a robust T20 World Cup group stage campaign. India's confidence primarily stems from the pacers' effort in three group matches. Lead quick Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, Hardik Pandya and Mohammed Siraj combined to bag 20 wickets among them.

The New York pitch certainly played its part, but the Indian pacers also showed the technical nous and understanding of conditions to exploit what was on offer to them.

The runs from skipper Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant and Suryakumar Yadav is another positive sign.

Hardik Pandya too seemed to have found his assured self in the World Cup after looking reticent in the IPL while leading the Mumbai Indians, a period when he was painted in social media as a silent villain. While his batting is yet to hit the top gear, Hardik the bowler oozed a lot of purpose, troubling batters with pace and variations.

However, everything is not roseate. The spinners, except Axar Patel to a certain extent, hardly got any game time in the group matches, courtesy the nature of the pitch in the Big Apple.

Axar bowled six overs spread across three matches, taking three wickets but second spinner Ravindra Jadeja bowled just three overs in the group stage against Ireland and Pakistan.

The left-arm spinner was not even employed against the USA.

Other spinners in the squad, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will enter the Super Eight with zero game time under their belt. It might not be the best scenario either as pitches in the West Indies are expected to progressively help the spinners.

But then this bunch of Indian players have shown a propensity to tame pressure points with ease, and they will have to invoke that tradition once more in the West Indies.
