Rain delays BD-SL match

The weather affected the World Cup for the second day in a row as Bangladesh's game against Sri Lanka was delayed and veering towards abandonment, according to BBC and ESPNcricinfo.

Rain ensured the covers remained on the pitch and square and prevented the toss taking place as scheduled at 1500 Bangladesh Standard time. Play was set to start at 1530.

Only 7.3 overs were possible in the match between West Indies and South Africa at Southampton on Monday.

"It's a grim scene. Play today is extremely unlikely," said BBC Test Match Special's Simon Mann.

Sri Lanka's match against Pakistan at Bristol on 7 June was abandoned without a ball being bowled.
