The World Cup in England this time around has been more rain and less cricket. The number of games that were washed out in the group stage can tell you the entire story.
The first semi-final between India and New Zealand was called off and will be played on the reserve day thanks to another appearance from the rain, this time in Manchester.
Twitter users couldn't help but find the funny side of this 'dampening' affair, where the Kiwis batted for 46.1 overs making only 211 runs and losing 5 wickets before rain suspended play.
Because of the worst match schedules by @ECB_cricket or whoever is behind.— Vishnu Prasad M (@me_vpm) July 9, 2019
They've well played to eliminate some particular teams.
I think some schedules should be reviewed by @ICC . Anyway great choice of hosting #CWC19 in such a climatic condition. pic.twitter.com/V3jIX8eshg

Wait, how did rain reach the semis despite having only 8 points in the league stages? #CWC19— Manya (@CSKian716) July 9, 2019
Indians to their gods: Hey bhagwan, ab rain-e de, rain-hem kar!
