Rain-affected World Cup sets a World record

Rain-affected World Cup sets a World record

The weather in England and Wales is starting to become a major talking point after Bangladesh v Sri Lanka became the latest match to be rained off. Earlier, the match between Sri Lanka-Pakistan and South Africa-West Indies also got abandoned due to rain in the ongoing World Cup.

This was the third match to be washed out in the last five days, the most in the history of World Cup, exceeding the two games at the 1992 edition in Australia and New Zealand, and the 2003 event which was co-hosted by South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya.

Weighing up the economic costs of the abandoned matches, Gloucestershire chief executive Will Brown has said the two abandoned World Cup games at Bristol in the last week could cost the county up to £20,000.
