The odds have been heavily stacked against Sri Lanka in both the matches and frankly speaking, they might be fortunate to eke out one point each from both the matches.
The inclement weather in England and Wales is starting to become a major talking point after the Bangladesh v Sri Lanka match at Bristol became the third fixture to be rained off. "They have got tickets to see a game of cricket, and you know it would be up to them if they can get there the day after". "But we can put a man on the moon, so if we have to travel a day later, so be it".
It was the second successive World Cup match at Bristol that had fallen victim to bad weather, with Sri Lanka´s group game against Pakistan at southwest county Gloucestershire´s headquarters on Friday also a no-result washout. His spell of 3/39 against Afghanistan helped Sri Lanka defend a modest total of 201 in a rain-affected game in Cardiff. "We want to play cricket and win games and gain the points". "But, well, we're happy with the points". "Our main objective is to try and get the game as soon as possible, but if anything, the rain has only gotten harder as the day went on", umpire Richard Illingworth said after the call-off.
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. "Absolutely nothing. And now all we can do is win our games coming up, one at a time and just think of that, which is the next game West Indies and try and win that".More news: Watch Watergate Fossil John Dean Get Obliterated At Anti-Trump Hearing

"So I think we need to prepare for the games, after winning, and we need momentum for that game".
He is expected to join the team, before the team's next #CWC19 game, which will be played against Australia on 15th.
What will help against the Australians, he added, was having played them in a warmup last month, so they know what's coming. We know how they are, and how they are going to play with us, so those are the things we have to look after.
