India’s match against New Zealand which is due to be held in Nottingham later today (June 13) is threatened by a high chance of rain. Inclement weather has been a feature of the World Cup 2019 for the past few days with as many as 3 games being washed out. Fans of both teams would be praying that today’s match doesn’t suffer the same fate.
While it has been raining for the past 2 days in Nottingham, today the rain has been intermittent but the wet outfield could still affect the duration of the match as we could see a reduction in overs as well.
When it stopped raining few minutes ago, officials tried to dry the field when it again started to drizzle as per the report by BCCI.

This irked the cricket fans who are thrashing ICC for selecting England to held the World cup. Three World Cup matches have already been called off cause of the rain. On Tuesday the match against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh was washed out without even a single ball bowled.
Twitter is busy wondering why the climatic conditions weren’t checked while hosting the mega event. Fans are screaming over the top of their voice for a reserve day for called off matches. ICC was slammed by the Twitterati.

Is a drizzle enough to stop a cricket match yes bcoz patches form on d ground bt my question is if stop patches from forming then can we not play cricket in slight drizzle or in light rain difficult but not impossible. Every other outdoor game played in rain except 🏏 .#IndVNZ
