Bangladesh and Sri Lanka split the points after persistent rains forced umpires Richard Illingworth, Richard Kettleborough and match referee Jeff Crowe to call the match off at Country Ground in Bristol. This was the second abandoned World Cup match in two days, and the third this week.
This is also Sri Lanka’s second rained-off game in this World Cup, their first being against Pakistan on June 7 at this very venue.
Following the result, Bangladesh moved up a spot and currently are at the seventh spot on the points table with 3 points from four matches. Sri Lanka claimed 4 points from the same number of matches.
