Rain played truant and the match between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the 2019 ICC World Cup cricket tournament at Bristol was abandoned without toss on Tuesday.
Heavy overnight and early morning rain delayed the scheduled start. Rain continued further and the umpires after several inspections called off the game officially at 6.27 pm (IST).
Both the teams secured a point each from this no result game. Sri Lanka have 4 points from 4 games and are placed fifth, while Bangladesh have three points from 4 games and are placed sixth in the points table.
It was the second successive World Cup match at Bristol that had fallen victim to bad weather, with Sri Lanka’s group game against Pakistan at southwest county Gloucestershire’s headquarters on Friday also a no-result washout.
Only one of three World Cup matches scheduled to take place in Bristol produced any play, champions Australia launching their title defence with a seven-wicket victory over outsiders Afghanistan.
