Match between Bangladesh & Sri Lanka delayed due to rain

Heavy overnight and early morning rain continued to delay the start of the World Cup group match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in Bristol today.

The umpires were due to hold a further inspection after the weather prevented the match starting at 3pm.

But, with the pitch and square covered and further rain falling, the prospects for play were not encouraging.

Sri Lanka has already suffered one no result washout in Bristol, against Pakistan last Friday.

Meanwhile tournament organisers, for the second day in a row, faced with the prospect of another incomplete match after rain forced South Africa and the West Indies to take a point each at Southampton yesterday.
