“We put men on the moon so why can’t we have a reserve day?” Bangladesh coach Steve Rhodes said in frustration.
“I know that it would have been difficult, but we have got quite a lot of time in between games, and if we have got to travel a day later, then so be it.” he added.
ICC chief executive David Richardson said, “Factoring in a reserve day for every match would significantly increase the length of the tournament and, practically, would be extremely complex to deliver.”
“It would impact pitch preparation, team recovery and travel days, accommodation and venue availability, tournament staffing, volunteer and match officials’ availability, broadcast logistics and very importantly the spectators, who in some instances have travelled hours to be at the game,” Richardson said.
“Up to 1200 people are on site to deliver a match and everything associated with it including getting it broadcast and a proportion of them are moving around the country so reserve days in the group stage would require a significant uplift in the number of staff,” he added. “There is also no guarantee that the reserve day would be free from rain either.”
Looking at the weather, Harsha Bhogle tweeted: “Oh dear! Was looking good and here comes the drizzle again. Big issue here is even if stops there is neither sunlight nor a breeze to dry the outfield. Also, the covers cover the square and not the entire ground.”
