"If you know the English weather, sadly, we're going to get a lot of rain".

We really targeted this sort of game to get two points, and I know that Sri Lanka would have fought very hard and been no pushovers at all.

Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne appreciated the problems of tournament logistics when the topic of reserve days for wash-outs was raised.

"We're very, very optimistic that the treatment that he'll get this week and the way that he can recover well; we're very optimistic that he can play in that next game against West Indies". "But we can put a man on the moon, so if we have to travel a day later, so be it".

The weather over England is poor this week, and rain is forecast at Taunton on Wednesday, when Australia plays Pakistan, and on Thursday at Nottingham, where India meets New Zealand.

"I'm very, very happy with the way we play the white ball, particularly when it's short", Rhodes said.

On Tuesday, both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka were left staring at the sky, waiting for some divine intervention after the start of their key match was delayed due to heavy rains. After their 10-wicket loss against New Zealand in their World Cup opener before they came back to win the next tie against Afghanistan by 34 runs.

Facing off Asianrivals Bangladesh in their next game, the Dimuth Karunaratne-led side would hope to pull off another win to boost their chances of making it to the top-four finish.

"It's massively gutting. These are things that are four-and-a-half years in the making", Gloucestershire chief executive Will Brown told AFP.

"It's enough for a club like us to make a significant difference", added Brown, who said all three World Cup matches in Bristol had been 11,500 sell-outs. I think you've seen some of our games in particular against South Africa, that didn't worry us.
