The tournament has been a witness to 16 matches out of which three games were abandoned due to rain.
"We put men on the moon, so why can't we have a reserve day, when actually this tournament is a long tournament". Afghanistan's match against Sri Lanka at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff was also decided by the DLS Method.
The latest abandonment is the second to befall Sri Lanka, whose encounter with Pakistan suffered an identical fate at the same venue last week. It is only in semi-finals and final that the matches will have a reserve day in case there is a washout.
Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne commented on rain playing spoilsport once again and washing out the match with Bangladesh. They have got tickets to see a game of cricket'.
Fewer than eight overs were bowled before West Indies and South Africa shared a point each in a washed out game at Southampton yesterday.
"He is expected to join the team before the next World Cup game, which will be played against Australia on 15th", SLC said in a statement. Not only this, the weather for India vs New Zealand clash at Trent Bridge in Nottinghamshire doesn't look good and the game could be washed-out as well.
Sri Lanka will now face Australia this Saturday at 9.30pm while Bangladesh will take on West Indies 9.30pm next Monday.
'It would impact pitch preparation, team recovery and travel days, accommodation and venue availability, tournament staffing, volunteer and match officials availability, broadcast logistics and very importantly the spectators who in some instances have travelled hours to be at the game.
No reserve days have been scheduled for the 10-team round-robin stage, despite the well-known risks of rain during a British summer. We played a practice game against Australia. Asked whether their lack of action will hinder them, Karunaratne added: "Every game is a challenging game". I know logistically it would have caused problems.
