Rain disrupted most of the match between South Africa & the West Indies on Monday [10th June] & things aren’t looking good ahead.
With Indian fans waiting for the team to face New Zealand in Nottingham, chances for a potential washout or major disruptions are expected. While a no-result would rob the fans of a great clash, New Zealand fans will probably see it as a good thing as they currently sit top of the table.
Heavy rain is predicted in the days leading up to the game which starts at 3 PM IST. The Met Office has issued a “Yellow warning” for rain in Nottingham.
“Spells of heavy & persistent rain have the potential to bring flooding & disruption to transport in places,” the weather forecasting body explains.
According to the rules of the one-day game, each team must face a minimum of 120 deliveries of the allocated 300 for the game to be counted. Anything less than that & the match is considered a no-decision & the two points that goes to the winner is shared between the two teams.
2 matches have been washed out already – Pakistan vs Sri Lanka & now the Proteas vs the Windies.
[T]he Met Office has also predicted light rain in Bristol for tonight’s game between Bangladesh & Sri Lanka [11th June]. There could also disruptions in Taunton where Australia & Pakistan face off.
