    Highest number of washouts in a Cricket World Cup

    The most number of washouts in a single world cup stands at 2 which happened in 1992 and in 1980 something.

    How many washouts are going to happen this year??
    Looks like it will be a lot more than 2.

    Horrible planning from the ICC here. There should be reserve days for games that are washed out.

    It is so unfortunate that games are washed out. It just puts into perspective the amount of Rain in the UK compared to the other parts of the world.

    Weather is inconsistent in May and the start of June. The WC should start when the weather is hotter in the UK which is the middle of June and start of July.

    It's raining everywhere in England, no play in County Championship today as well.

    Looking at weather forecast, looks like this whole week, all games might end up with no result

    Teams getting S over because of Rain in this WC

    A few games have been washed away where some teams would have fancied victories over other teams. Was it a good idea to host the WC in England in this weather?

    England is the home of cricket, the game was invented here and is played how cricket should be played here.

    Of course rain ruins the day but the weather should improve next week.

    Due to the Ashes, the ECB and ICC choose late May and June when they should have chosen July and August which are the best two months of the year for sun in England.. But it can rain anytime of the year here for an hour, a day, a week or month. Rain is part of the game and I would rather have this tournament in England than Asia.

    1999 in England was one of the best World Cups ever along with 1992.

    Were they dates different that time around or was it just luck?

    If our game gets washed out against Aus then Pak could be the 2nd team to be affected by rain after SA. They should have done something to cop with rain like an extra day if they really wanted it in Eng.

    Itís a disappointment so far , not sure how many more games are going to get affected by rain in this WC.

    The scheduling was wrong to begin with - if they were hosting WC in England then should have been mid July/August instead of late May/June.

    Secondly this ICC and umpiring mindset still dates back to 1960s and 70s ó they should have had a contingency plan firstly for rain by having reserve days for each game, and secondly why on earth does it take umpires half an hour to 45 minutes before they can even come out for an inspection and then even sometimes when itís all sunny the umpires write off th game ?? This is what makes cricket a laughing stock.

    Surely with these stadiums having floodlights, no matter how much it rains at some point before the day ends you will have enough time to have a 20 overs game or even a 10 over slog fest if nothing else ó not ideal but would that not be a better option then No Result and no action at all?

    Itís probably what might get the ICC taking this matter seriously for future if they end up having to give 100% refund to all fans for the Pak c India game - no doubt in future they will ensure World Cups are scheduled at a place and time where the weather conditions are suitable for cricket to be played, eg think twice about England. Ensure reserve days, floodlit stadiums, indoor cricket stadiums, whatever it takes.

    Do you think ICC should hire a full time Meteorologist for Cricket World Cups?

    So, if it were one game, i won't have minded much. But two on the trott, for Pakistan. I am losing my sit a bit. It's a world cup. It comes after 4 years. How can you do that to a certain team. it's unfair. Teams should earn those points, not divide them in case of abandoned match. As simple as that.

    We all know there are areas in a country, where rain falls more than usual. In Pakistan, it's hazara division. Good old days & Hanif on PTV announcing rains almost every time there. Kind of made me wanted to go & settle there.

    Ok, back to the topic. There are places where rain falls more than usual, as per past years statistics, as per el nino (i hope the subcontinent people know about this), or any other cycle in the ocean or the sea, which can predict a thing or more about rains. Why not use that information?

    So, would it be not a good idea, to have ICC tournaments a bit more flexible in terms of venues, and dates, under the supervision of ICC expert meteorologist? I think ICC can save a lot of the hassle if they could just go by the opinion of local weather experts before deciding & locking onto a fixture for big tournaments.

    May be England should have had only 4-5 grounds, chosen in coordination with the weather experts, instead of f ton venues like 2019 world cup to promote tourism or God-knows-what.

    Some people will tell you that ICC should not have contingency plans because it will cost more, others will tell you to hold the WC in July, and push the Ashes forwards into late August.

    2 points for both teams is a great idea, no team should be penalised if they are not able to play!

    Rain reserve day is a must too. The costs are not as important as the integrity of the tournament. Most fans are from England and will come back the next day.

    It is so so annoying when a game is washed out. Why did they put it in England in the first place where rain is so frequent in the first place ? It's not fair when a number of games are/will be washed out. There should have been an alternate venue/reserve day for the matches where there's definite forecast of rain.

    But its not a draw bro, it's a washed out abandoned match. Imagine if Pakistans has another 2 washed out matches, out of the cup due to no fault of their own.

    No it's not.
    Coz unless their own matches get washed out, they can't match the points.

    For example:
    Nz: 5 wins = 10 points
    Pak: 5 wins 1 nr = 11 points.

    Other teams will miss out on the semis through no fault of their own instead because teams have benefited from their game being rained out.

    Should have moved the Ashes a bit forward and started the World Cup in mid June or towards the end of June. When I first found out the World Cup will start at the end of May I was so shocked because it's still not sunny in England at that time of the year.

    As usual, ECB love sticking to tradition.

    You can't just give 2 points to both teams that'll mess up the whole points table. 1 is fine.

    It's unfair to both teams, as they can't control weather. They should get an equal shot at winning.

    Listen.
    There are only 2 points available.
    So what's the logical thing to do?????
    Give both one each.
    Not give them two each that's illogical.
    The weather is a part and parcel of cricket. Cricket is a game of chance.
    The toss is a game of chance. The weather is too.
    So no point in complaining.

    Giving 2 points each for a washout is a ridiculous suggestion. A more reasonable (but still quite radical) one would be to sort the points table on a points per completed game basis.

    But we shouldn't leave anything like weather to chance. As it will bring suffering to both team. While other teams enjoy good weather. 2 points each. I won't change my opinion.

    It's not perfect but if you match is played fully and you lose, it's your own fault. Every team should have the opportunity to gain two points whether it's winning in a match played or an abandoned match. Currently only teams are being disadvantaged due to rain not due to playing in the sun.

    There should never be a WC in England again. ICC will end up humiliated again with all the rained off matches. Even the eventual champion would be embarrassed if half the matches are cancelled.

    In a washout match, the two captains should toss a coin to see who gets the victory and the two points!
    Not as ridiculous as it sounds, we use a coin toss to decide who bats/ bowls first, which is a huge advantage to the team who wins the toss, in most games , decides the winner. So why not use a coin toss to see who gets the win and the two points, in a washout game. It can be called a technical win!

    Cricket was invented as a village game and it still remains a village game. cricket should not try to compete with professional sports.

    In case of washout, give the 2 points to team which has the best record in their most recent 5 H2H matches.

    If the two teams faced off against one another in the warm ups, the result should be taken. That way you can account for NRR as well.

    Warm up match is just practice without any intensity.

    Last year we had glorius weather. A heatwave(by uk standards 28-30 degrees)
    and very little rain for a couple of months.
    This year its been terrible!
    I would only hold world t20 tournaments in england with a reserve day, as you will probably get away with 3.5hrs of cricket in 2 days. I would never hold the most prestigious cricketing event - the WC in england again, unless we have some serious global warming taking place!

    I did not want Yadav in the team then and now. I don't like bowlers relying on just mystery or novelty. He is a mental midget. Chahal is more mentally capable.
