Nottingham: New Zealand coach Gary Stead on Thursday termed international Cup recreation wash-out towards India as "unlucky and frustrating" however agreed with ICC's statement that reserve days can be a "logistical nightmare".

New Zealand educate's opinion became sincerely seconded by means of India's fielding train R Sridhar, who as compared the Trent Bridge outfield to a slippery "skating rink" in which it remains a chance of players getting injured.

"Yeah, it'd were lovely to play India.

. It's constantly difficult mentally, I assume on a day like this, while you come down prepared to play, and it doesn't happen. But it's out of our manage. We will't in reality do tons about it, so we've were given to move on speedy for South Africa," Stead said after the in shape become known as off without a ball being bowled.

but, Stead agreed with ICC CEO Dave Richardson's opinion that reserve days aren't an option no matter inclement climate and not likely downpour inside the month of June.

"Reserve days, I think, is going to be a logistical nightmare. The ICC, I suppose, have made that pretty famous. Regrettably, it's a chunk of an anomaly already. When you examine the quantity of days we've lost already, I think it's the biggest kind of amount of days lost in a global Cup ever," he said.

"So, we can't do an awful lot about that. We just must, I bet, push on with what the time table is," stated Stead.

Sridhar also agreed that it's frustrating however nothing may be finished in the interim.

"Oh, there's a large technical committee from the ICC on that. It relies upon on the layout, the time available. We don't have any days off in this match. Every day there's a game. So there may be hardly ever an possibility to have a reserve day. I don't realize the technical issue of it. The ICC will determine that. It's now not for me to take that call," the India fielding instruct said.

As a whole lot as India might have loved a difficult sport before the conflict towards Pakistan on Sunday, Sridhar does not need to harp too much at the "uncontrollable".

"It's uncontrollable, isn't it? You without a doubt can't manage the weather, so we have had properly video games. We got here right here searching ahead to 1/3 desirable one, however regrettably, we can't manage the climate," he said.

"I went at the floor. It was almost like a skating rink. So it would put an excessive amount of risk on the players to play on there, specifically on the early segment of the event."

For Stead, with an opening of six days, he would really like his players to loosen up for more than one days, have a few down time with households.

"To be sincere, the first issue we're going to do is have a couple of days off. We don't play once more for about six days now, and i suppose it's critical which you control your breaks. It's pretty ironic although. I assume our last 4 trainings have all been interior. Look, it'd have been cute to play for 2 factors, if feasible," he said, seeking to cover his frustration.

He was asked whether or not the arena Cup at the moment of the yr have to were scheduled somewhere else and no longer the UK.

the brand new Zealand educate gave a funny respond which changed into a depiction of helplessness greater than some thing else.

"I don't assume so. In case you took the UK summer season from closing yr, then i am now not certain it did rain at all from the sound of factors. It's a chunk of awful luck without a doubt. It is able to rain everywhere in the world. My first tour became in Dubai, and it rained there in the desolate tract, and i by no means thought it became going to rain there both. So I don't think we will simply help that.
