Bangladesh-Sri Lanka washout sets World Cup record

Dream11 Team Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 – Cricket Prediction Tips For Today’s World C

Bangladesh Coach Steve Rhodes after team's match washed out on Tuesday.

Furthermore, the umpire had to cancel Sri Lanka's game against Pakistan due to rain without a ball being played. Both sides received a point for the washout.

Former England wicket-keeper Rhodes, asked if he would have included reserve days in the 10-team round-robin phase, replied: "Yeah, I would".

"If you know the English weather, sadly, we're going to get a lot of rain".

Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne appreciated the problems of tournament logistics when the topic of reserve days for wash-outs was raised. "We're very, very optimistic that the treatment he will get this week and the way he can recover well that he can play in that next game against the West Indies".


'We put men on the moon, so why can't we have a reserve day?'

"It's disappointing for the crowd, as well". "And we know we've got some good players ourselves, so we won't be worrying too much about who we're playing against. I know Sri Lanka would have fought very hard and they are no pushovers at all", Rhodes said.

Heavy overnight and early morning rain delayed Tuesday's scheduled 10:30 am local time (0930 GMT) start, with further rain seeing the game eventually called off at 1:57 pm (1257 GMT). Rain is forecast for Taunton on Wednesday where Australia play Pakistan, and also for Nottingham on Thursday, where India face New Zealand.

Bangladesh were handed a two-wicket loss by New Zealand followed by a massive a 106-run defeat to hosts England after their 21-run win over South Africa in their World Cup opener. Rain played spoilsport in Bristol, with the match being cancelled without even a single ball being bowled.

"It's massively gutting. These are things that are four-and-a-half years in the making", Gloucestershire chief executive Will Brown told AFP. I think sometimes you might think if you share the points, it's fine. I think you've seen some of our games in particular against South Africa, that didn't worry us.
