Chances of precipitation are the same throughout the day, as more than 50% denotes a fair amount of precipitation; this can easily be a reason to cancel a cricket match. Adelaide has been receiving showers since Tuesday and the same is expected to continue through Wednesday evening.

If the rain forces a retirement, then the fight in Group 2 will intensify a lot. India and Bangladesh will have 5 points each with one game to play. They will both need to win their last Super 12 game to qualify for the semi-finals. On the other hand, South Africa, who already have 5 points, will have a better chance of qualifying, needing only one victory to confirm a place in the next round.
