So the inevitable has happened, the umpires who were having a chat with Simon Doull have informed that THIS GAME HAS BEEN CALLED OFF! This is the third game in this World Cup which has been called off without a ball being bowled. Very disappointing being a cricket fan, can't do anything about it though as the rain gods just did not have mercy on us today as well. It did stop for a while in between but only to come down harder a little later. The groundsmen and the umpires did try their best to get the field ready but all their efforts went in vain eventually. The two teams share a point in the end. The Kiwis remain on top and the Men in Blue move to the third place, that could change a bit though after the game between England and West Indies on the 14th of June 2019. It begins at 1030 local (0930 GMT). The forecast is not great but much better than today. Let us hope we get some action. Till then, take care and goodbye!
