Rain affects ICC World Cup

Both Sri Lanka’s matches against Bangladesh and Pakistan were abandoned due to rain while South Africa’s match against West Indies was suspended. This is the highest number of games canceled in a World Cup. The previous was two, in 1992 (Australia) and 2003 (South Africa). Reserve days could be an option. However, outgoing ICC chief executive David Richardson said that “reserved days would be difficult to deliver.” He added that “It would impact pitch preparation, team recovery and travel days, accommodation and venue availability, tournament staffing, volunteer and match officials' availability, broadcast logistics and very importantly the spectators, who in some instances have traveled hours to be at the game.” He added that there is no guarantee that the reserve days will also be rain-free. Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne said that reserve days may be difficult to implement but would be good for everyone.

The Case of the Immovable Bails

There have been five incidents where the electronic ‘zing’ bails lit up but failed to fall. The most recent one happened in India’s game against Australia. Jasprit Bumrah bowled against David Warner and hit his leg stump. However, the bails didn’t move. After the game, Imran Kohli said that incidents like this aren’t what you expect in an international event. "I think with the technology it's great... But you literally have to smash the stumps really hard, and I'm saying that as a batsman… The ball hits the stump and the lights don't come on, or the lights come on and the bail comes back on to the stump. I haven't seen that happen so many times in the past," he said.

Australia defeats Pakistan

In their most recent match, Australia defeats Pakistan by 41 runs. Australia’s Aaron Finch scored a half-century off 63 balls, Steve Smith scored 10, and Warner scored a century in 102 balls. Pakistan’s Imam-ul-Haq scored 53 off 75 with seven fours, Babar Azam scored 30 off 28, and Sarfaraz Ahmed scored 40. The livescore of the game was Australia 307(49), Pakistan 266(45.4).
