Bangladesh coach criticises lack of World Cup reserve days after another washout

ICC World Cup 2019,Sri Lanka,Nuwan Pradeep

On Monday, South Africa vs West Indies was abandoned after only 7.3 overs of play was possible in Southampton.

But the ICC has dismissed the idea of having reserve days for the 45 games in the group stage, saying it would significantly extend the length of an already lengthy tournament and would be logistically hard for broadcasters and venue managers.

"It's disappointing for the crowd, as well".

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

With both sides taking a point from this morning's wash-out, Sri Lanka move up to fifth in the table and Bangladesh climb to seventh.

'We put men on the moon, so why can't we have a reserve day, when actually this tournament is a long tournament.

Skipper Karunaratne said that his team was at the World Cup to play competitive cricket and didn't want points for free.

Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Soumya Sarkar are important cogs with the bat for Bangladesh and Sri Lanka pacemen Nuwan Pradeep and Lasith Malinga will be hoping to make early inroads.

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

Richardson further said, "This is extremely unseasonal weather".

He is expected to join the team, before the team's next #CWC19 game, which will be played against Australia on 15th.

Richardson said some areas of England had experienced more than double the average monthly rainfall for June in the last couple of days, a vast change from past year, when only a fraction of an inch was recorded in June. In 2018, there was just 2 mm of rain in June but the last 24 hours alone has seen around 100 mm rainfall in the south-east of England.

A second straight washout left Sri Lanka completely without momentum ahead of their fixture with Australia on Saturday.

The Sri Lanka captain said: "I think as a team, we came here to play".
