Ban vs SL - 16th match, Bristol
Bangladesh-Sri Lanka washout sets World Cup record
Bristol: The Bangladesh-Sri Lanka match in Bristol has been abandoned without a ball being bowled.
Rain delayed the toss before the scheduled start at 10:30 a.m. local time, and it was still raining when the umpires walked out to inspect the covered pitch just before 2 p.m.
It's the second match abandoned at this Cricket World Cup, an unwanted tournament record.
The first was also in Bristol, last Friday, Sri Lanka vs. Pakistan.
It's also the second consecutive washout, after South Africa-West Indies went only 7.3 overs on Monday in Southampton.
The weather over England is poor for the rest of this week, and chances are high that several matches will be affected by rain.
