The World Cup match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka at Bristol has been abandoned due to rain.

The World Cup match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka at Bristol has been abandoned due to rain.

The match referee made the call at 1:57pm (Bangladesh time 6:57pm).

 Bangladesh were looking to make a comeback after losing two consecutive games against New Zealand and hosts England.

 Tigers and the Lankans were awarded one point each.

Sri Lanka have accumulated four points while Bangladesh gathered three from four matches. The unwanted draw left Bangladesh to ponder about many things about qualifying for the semi-finals.

Bangladesh have five more matches left and they need to win at least four of them to qualify for the semi-finals without relying on the results of others’ matches.

Tigers started their World Cup campaign in style, beating South Africa.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, lost their first World Cup match to current runners up New Zealand but won their second game against Afghanistan. They got another point in their third game when the match was washed out.

Bangladesh will take on West Indies in their next game on June 17 at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton, while Sri Lanka will face Australia on June 15 at Kennington Oval, London.

Sri Lanka are in a better position at the point table than Bangladesh as they got one point from their match against Pakistan which was washed away due to rain and the match ended without a ball being bowled.

Bangladesh managed an enterprising start in their World Cup assault beating South Africa in the first game but they lost two consecutive games to New Zealand and the hosts England. In those matches, Bangladesh played well but failed to seal the game.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, lost their first World Cup match to the current runners up New Zealand by a big margin of 10 wickets.

But in the second game, they came up victorious against Afghanistan by 34 runs and earned two points. They got another point in their third game when the game was washed out due to persistent rain.
