This English summer has been uncharacteristically wet as the rain has played a spoil sport quite a few times now. The latest victim of the incessant rain is the first T20 between England and West Indies.
After being at the receiving end of an ignominious 3-0 defeat, West Indies women would have looked for redemption against England in the three match T20 series. However, to their misfortune, the game that was scheduled on Tuesday was washed out without a single ball being bowled. This is the fifth time (four times in ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup and once in the Women’s T20) a match has been called off in the last 20 days.
The two sides will meet on Friday at Northampton for the second T20. Hope the Rain God turns a Nelson’s eye to the upcoming game. Fingers crossed.
