Lasith Malinga will leave the Sri Lankan team following their World Cup Game against Bangladesh, which will be played in Bristol today, following the death of his mother-in-law.

In the absence of two key players, Sri Lanka would likely be a bit less disappointed as compared to Bangladesh after the match being rained off.

The final will be played on the 14th of July.

"I know logistically it would have been a big headache for the tournament organisers", Rhodes began at the post-match press conference. "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. "But we can put a man on the moon, so if we have to travel a day later, so be it". "They have got tickets to see a game of cricket and it would be up to them if they can get there the day after".

Asked whether there should be reserve days in the group phase, Bangladesh coach Steve Rhodes, a former England wicket-keeper, said: "Yes, I would (have them)".

Heavy overnight and early morning rain delayed Tuesday's scheduled 10:30 am local time (0930 GMT) start, with further rain seeing the game eventually called off at 1:57 pm (1257 GMT).

The second practice run was very different from the first, when Mercedes easily set the fastest lap times and dominated the field. He is looking for his seventh victory in Montreal , which would tie Michael Schumacher's record.

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. This left Bangladesh precariously placed, with a win and a washout after four matches.

With rain continuing to fall at the County Ground, a decision was taken to abandon the game without a ball being bowled three-and-a-half hours after play was scheduled to begin - meaning both sides each took a point.

Mortaza added, "I think Shakib will be fine, he still has four or five days to recover".
