India's tons-awaited match against New Zealand went down the drain as persistent rain caused another wash out within the ongoing ICC Cricket world Cup 2019. Unpredictable English weather and constant rains have spoiled the amusing of the sector Cup, so far, for a whole lot of fanatics.

before the India-New Zealand conflict, Bangladesh-Sri Lanka and Pakistan-Sri Lanka had been absolutely washed out even as the South Africa-West Indies conflict changed into abandoned after some preliminary overs.


The inclement climate has additionally forged some doubts on the imminent mega conflict among India and Pakistan.

The loss of action for the duration of a tournament for which enthusiasts look forward to four long years have naturally led to numerous criticism of the worldwide cricketing body ICC for the dearth of reserve days for league suits. Whilst the worldwide frame has come below lots stress for its lack of planning, CEO Dave Richardson advised the media, in advance, that with reserve days for round-robin matches the arena Cup "nearly would be extremely complicated to deliver".

but there's nonetheless lots that the organisers, groundsmen and ICC may want to do to salvage a few motion for the fanatics.

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir feels ICC need to be higher with its planning along with masking the entire ground in advance to lessen put off in starting a healthy after rain stops.

"The ICC can do lots better. The rains have stopped since the beyond 2-three hours despite which the match hasn't started," Gambhir stated on megastar sports Cricket live as all of us waited for the fate of India's suit. "moreover, the rains had been expected because the past three days so what may be performed is the ground must have been covered on account that the beginning with the intention to keep away from the healthy postpone due to the moist outfield. If this match would've been affected because of other motives along with horrific floodlights, it'd've been understandable but that's no longer the case. The ICC wishes to check out this because that is a global match, for an occasion of such stature, it is especially disappointing for the spectators and visitors to keep waiting for hours."

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly had an imaginative idea to get the sport going as quickly as the rain stops and that includes change of covers.

"The covers that are utilized in India, on the Eden Gardens are from England and the usage of them here (in England) could have intended spending 1/2 the price and it is also tax-free, so they must have used those right here besides. In India, we use those covers for all suits, so that after the rain stops the in shape can resume inside 10 mins. They're very light covers, it's now not difficult to boost it, you don't need an excessive amount of manpower. The blue covers that have been used earlier in India, used to take more than 10 times the time and those in evaluation to now. The covers that are in Eden Gardens and in Lord's are translucent covers, so light is going past it. This way the grass received't dry up nor will the colour change from green to brown, in case you use them to cowl the outfield. For such essential fits, and in a event just like the world Cup — specially in a rustic like England where the rains are so frequent, having those covers are very vital, in particular at the outfield as nicely"

Ganguly, but, also stated that there's little everybody can do if it rains as continuously as it did at Trent Bridge, the venue of India-New Zealand contest, in previous couple of days.

"these days's case is unique, the healthy turned into called off not handiest due to the rain these days — however it's been raining constantly for the past three days. The 2 reasons for the delay were first off, the wet pitch and secondly, some thing that the viewers on display can't see is how dark the ground is, the healthy can't begin in one of these darkish placing."
