Written by Mohan Sharma

For the third straight match in Florida, play had to abandoned without a ball being bowled at the T20 World Cup on Saturday. After Sri Lanka vs Nepal on Tuesday and USA vs Ireland on Friday, it was India vs Canada on Saturday. On three occasions play was abandoned due to rain or wet outfield. Saturday was heights. There was not rain at all and yet no play was possible as the pitch was damp due to earlier rain.

Earlier, Pakistan were knocked out before even playing their as the USA vs Ireland at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill, Florida was washed out.

Batting great Sunil Gavaskar was angry at the way things have progressed.

“Request To ICC, that it should not host the matches where there are no covers to cover the entire ground. You just can’t cover the pitch and let the other parts of the ground get wet. So many people were waiting to see top stars in action but they were denied. This should not be the case,” Sunil Gavaskar said on Star Sports.

Even Michael Vaughan was angry. “How we don’t have more covers to cover all the ground is beyond me .. all the money in the game yet we still get games called off for wet outfields !!!! #T20WorldCup #USA,” he wrote on X.
