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

Two matches of the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019 have already been washed out by rain: Pakistan vs Sri Lanka and South Africa vs West Indies.

Bangladesh Coach Steve Rhodes after team's match washed out on Tuesday. People from all over the world keep asking me whether it's going to rain; I don't know. "We put men on the moon so why can't we have a reserve day, when actually this tournament is a long tournament?"

"It's disappointing for the crowd, as well. They have got tickets to see a game of cricket, and you know it would be up to them if they can get there the day after", Rhodes said. "I know Sri Lanka would have fought very hard and they are no pushovers at all", Rhodes said. "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".

The weather over England is poor this week, and rain is forecast at Taunton on Wednesday, when Australia plays Pakistan, and on Thursday at Nottingham, where India meets New Zealand.

Crews have struggled to assess how much damage the 70-year-old boat sustained in the collision, salvage experts said. Seven people were rescued after the nigh-time collision in heavy rain.

Rain ensured the covers remained on the pitch and square and prevented the toss taking place as scheduled at 10:00 BST.

On Monday, skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza said back-to-back defeats to New Zealand and hosts England might have jeopardised their prospects of reaching the semi-finals, but the task is merely hard and not impossible if they win the remaining matches.

"I think it (the weather) might play a huge part in the next few days", Australia captain Aaron Finch said at Taunton on Tuesday. This left Bangladesh precariously placed, with a win and a washout after four matches. Rain played spoilsport in Bristol, with the match being cancelled without even a single ball being bowled.

Brown, asked how much the two abandonments would cost Gloucestershire financially, added: "Our catering around the ground will definitely have taken a hit". But I think we don't want to win our points freely. "We have to make sure that we come back to the winning track and then have a look what happens next", he said.
