Cricket during monsoon: Rain threat looms large over India-Bangladesh ODIs

Posted By:

Dhaka, June 15: With the one-off India-Bangladesh Test ending in a draw yesterday due to rain on all 5 days, the same situation is likely to repeat in the 3-match ODI series that starts on June 18 (Thursday) in Dhaka.

On Monday morning, host broadcaster "Star Sports" commentator Harsha Bhogle tweeted that it was "bucketing down" in Dhaka.

"Needless to say, it is bucketing down in Dhaka," Bhogle wrote on his Twitter page on Monday morning.

It is monsoon season in Bangladesh now and for the first time in the country's history, a Test match was played in the month of June. And as expected there was no result due to showers.

All 3 India-Bangladesh ODIs, however, have reserve days. But still we might see shortened games instead of full 50-over contests.
