The West Indies-South Africa game was washed out.

The 2019 World Cup has seen some enthralling matches and a few rain-affected games as well. Two matches have already been washed out – including the South Africa v West Indies match on Monday – and more seem in store given the terrible weather forecast for the coming days.

The UK is expected to receive heavy rains over the week and all World Cup matches lined up for the next three days are expected to be greatly affected. Shared points mean some teams will be denied the full two points, plus no chance to improve their net run rate – which can be a major factor by the end of this month in the qualification race.

Here are the next three fixtures and their corresponding weather forecast:

Bangladesh v Sri Lanka: Tuesday, June 11 in Bristol

There is a 70 per cent chance of rain in Bristol on Tuesday and all through the week.

Australia v Pakistan: Wednesday, June 12 in Taunton

Showers expected in Taunton on Wednesday with chances of precipitation pegged at 60 per cent.

India v New Zealand: Thursday, June 13 in Nottingham

Almost guaranteed rain on Thursday with the met department forecasting 90 per cent chance of rain.

The BBC reported warnings for heavy rains across the UK. According to it, the Met Office has issued warning for rain in south east England “with a month’s rainfall forecast for some areas”.

Warnings have also been issued for east England, north east England and parts of the midlands.
