Bangladesh-Sri Lanka washout sets World Cup record

Sri Lanka's Nuwan Pradeep walks off the field for medical treatment as he gets injured during a training session

Overnight and early morning downpour meant the toss could not be held at 10:30am local time on Tuesday.

Bangladesh coach Steve Rhodes on Tuesday called for the inclusion of reserve days in the World Cup schedule after Bangladesh were forced to split points with Sri Lanka following the abandonment of their match due to persistent rain here.

"I know logistically it would have been a big headache for the tournament organisers", Rhodes began at the post-match press conference.

Sri Lanka Cricket confirmed the news on Twitter saying that he will leave for Sri Lanka after the game against Bangladesh. But realistically, what can we do about it?

The result will leave Sri Lanka frustrated as it is the second instant of a wash-out for the Island nation.

Exhausted of watching the rain in Bristol, he said: "Hopefully we can play".

Markets await clarification of details to the U.S. Mexican deal
However, three Mexican officials said that they're not aware of any such deal, according to a report by Bloomberg today. Mexico, however, had already meant to do that before Trump's latest threat and had made that clear to USA officials.

Rhodes expects star allrounder Shakib Al Hasan, who hurt a thigh muscle on Saturday while scoring a century against England, to be available to play the West Indies after another five days of recuperation.

Despite two points being added to their tally, the equivalent of a win, Dimuth Karunaratne is adamant Sri Lanka - who very few are tipping to progress beyond the group stage - want to prove themselves.

"No. Do I think it's £10,000-£20,000? We have to make sure that we come back to the winning track and then have a look what happens next", he said. "We really felt we targeted that sort of game as two points".

Australia failed to qualify for the semi-finals of the 2017 Champions Trophy in England following their rained-off matches against New Zealand and Bangladesh, before they lost to England on the Duckworth/Lewis method for weather-interrupted fixtures.

He is expected to join the team, before the team's next #CWC19 game, which will be played against Australia on 15th. So we are well aware of what they have got and we know what's coming and we've got some plans to try and deal with that.
