Australia-Bangladesh abandoned due to weather - Cricket News

The match between Australia and Bangladesh has been abandoned due to bad weather

As a result of persistent rain, the match was finally abandoned at 4.38pm without a ball being bowled. Ticket holders will receive a refund.

With weather forecasts earlier in the day predicting rain clearing in the afternoon, ICC match officials were hopeful that a reduced overs match could be completed. However the ongoing rain meant that ultimately there was no possibility of completing the required minimum of 20 overs per side.

As there are no reserve days in the pool phase of the tournament the match could not be rescheduled.
