Washouts. Too many one-sided matches. The lack of pizzazz due to the tournament being ludicrously restricted to a measly 10 teams.
It’s hard to dispute that the cricket World Cup has started lethargically. And there is still an interminable 24 days to go until the knockout stages begin – due to the bygone format used in the 1992 edition being revived – even though the top four teams have already broken ahead.
So, the World Cup desperately needs a spark and fortunately fierce foes India and Pakistan play each other in the tournament’s showpiece match on June 16 in Manchester. The main reason why the tournament was culled to 10 teams and reverted to an outdated format was to ensure more games for money-spinner India – mainly to satisfy broadcasters – and, importantly, make sure there is at least one blockbuster India-Pakistan match.
Former India captain and batting great Sunil Gavaskar questioned the apparent lack of rain preparedness of England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 after rain interruption in quite a few matches.
India take on Pakistan in what is arguably the biggest match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on Sunday in Manchester. However, rain threat looms large over the big-ticket encounter. With the Old Trafford ground taking a lot of water due to the rain in the lead up to Sunday, the wet patches are going to be a cause for concern if the wet weather persists.
