BRISTOL – Heavy overnight and early morning rain delayed the start of the World Cup group match between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in Bristol on Tuesday.
The umpires were due to hold a pitch inspection at the scheduled start time of 10:30 am local time (0930 GMT).
But, with the pitch and square covered and further rain falling, there was a chance the officials would wait until having another look at the condition of the ground.

The toss at Bristol has been delayed due to rain, but the covers are being peeled off, and an inspection is due at 10:30am.
Here's hoping the weather stays true! 🤞 #CWC19
