So, the inevitable has happened. THE GAME HAS BEEN CALLED OFF!!! The rain did not stop till around 4 hours from the stipulated start and even once it did, the outfield had wet patches which could compromise the safety of the players and it could not be dried in time. Hence, the umpires have decided to abandon this game and award 1 point each to either team. Both sides will be disappointed with this shared point as they were eagerly eyeing a win after winning their previous game. Unfortunately, they will have to contend with sharing points. That is all from Bristol and a fruitless Friday, we could not have any action but we will return on Saturday with hope of a Super Saturday. It is a double-header day and 4 teams will be in action. The first game will be between hosts, England as they take on Bangladesh in Cardiff. That will be played at 1030 local time. The second one is between Afghanistan and New Zealand and that will begin at 1330 local. Hope we have games and full ones! See you for the same! Till then, goodbye, take care and cheers!
