The poor weather conditions start to prevail over England and Wales with ICC World Cup 2019 just around the corner. The first ODI between Pakistan and England at the Oval was also washed out due to heavy hailstorm and rain.
The dark clouds were playing hide and seek during the whole course of the game which forced the umpires to abandon the match after just 19 overs of play. The fans, who were eagerly waiting for the series to kick on, were utterly devastated.
These mercurial weather conditions might become part and parcel in the World Cup which will begin at the end of this month (May). The ground staff surely has a heavy and strenuous duty lying ahead.
