Rain Delays Sri Lanka vs Nepal Toss at Florida

Sri Lanka who lost their first two games of the tournament needs to win their remaining two games in order to stay alive in the Super 8 race. Nepal on the other hand played just one game so far and lost that by six wickets against the Netherlands.

Sri Lanka played their first match against South Africa and lost the game by 6 wickets while faced Bangladesh in their second game and lost the game by 2 wickets.

Without any victories, both Nepal and Sri Lanka are placed in the last two spots in the points table. Nepal will play this match without their star spinner Sandeep Lamichhane who has been denied a US visa. The right-arm leg-break Sandeep Lamichhane will join the Nepal squad in the West Indies after sitting out Nepal’s first two matches in the USA.

The match will play a key role for both teams who were in search of their first victory of the tournament.

05: 30 AM IST: As per the report, the rain stopped a while ago and umpires are scheduled to inspect the ground in 30 minutes from now. Remember, the cut-off time for a 5 over-per-side contest is 08:17 IST.
