Mirpur (Bangladesh), June 18: All 3 India-Bangladesh One Day Internationals have been allocated reserve days. The opening ODI today was already interrupted by rain in the first innings. And according to the match playing conditions, the game will resume from the point where it stopped due to rain not afresh.
With cricket being played during monsoon season in Bangladesh, rain has already played havoc in the preceding one-off Test which ended in a draw. All 5 days were hit by showers.
Keeping in mind the inclement weather conditions, the organisers have allotted reserve days for all 3 matches at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium. The first ODI started today and the 2nd one will be on Sunday (June 21) and the last game on June 24 (Wednesday).
Here are the rain rules for the series
# 1 reserve day allocated to all 3 ODIs on which an incomplete match shall be continued from the scheduled day
# Every effort will be made to complete the match on the scheduled day with any necessary reduction in overs taking place and only if the minimum number of overs necessary to constitute a match cannot be bowled on the scheduled day will the match be completed on the reserve day.
# If the match has started on the scheduled day and overs are subsequently reduced following an interruption, but no further play is possible, the match will resume on the reserve day at the point where the last ball was played.
