3-4 T20 World Cup Matches In a Day

The confusion regarding the schedule is particularly pronounced in Indian Standard Time (IST). Some days feature matches in the USA or West Indies at night followed by morning matches the next day in India, leading to four matches taking place in a single day. For instance, if there are two night matches in the West Indies, starting at 6:30 PM and 7:30 PM respectively, they will be aired in India at 5 AM and 6 AM the following day.

Similarly, day matches in the West Indies on a given day will be broadcasted in India at 8 PM and 10:30 PM on the same day. Consequently, there will be days with three or four matches scheduled. Matches on June 4th, 6th, 9th, 12th, 14th, and 17th will follow Indian Standard Time, while June 8th and 15th will each have four matches played according to Indian time.
