The weather in England has proved to be quite a dampener on the spirits of die-hard cricket fans as at least three games have been washed out even due to rains. The Indian lads were up against the Kiwis yesterday for their third match, however, rains kept the players off the field and left a whole lot of fans worldwide frustrated. Indians fans, especially were disappointed as they did not get to see their favourite players in action and took to Twitter to vent out. The hashtag #ShameOnICC was among the top trends on Friday.

Cricket mania has also struck Bollywood and scores of celebs are expected to turn up at the India-Pakistan game on June 16. Superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who has been following the 2019 World Cup closely, recently joked about the bad timing of rains that resulted in the cancellation of the India-New Zealand match. 

Big B took to social media to joke that the championship should be shifted to India as we are in desperate need of rains considering that the monsoon has been delayed this year. A user tweeted, “Shame on #ICC for organizing such an important tournament at such a time when half the matches are getting washed away! Get a life folks, and concentrate on the right timing of the tournament rather than on the right “glove” of #Dhoni!!! #WorldCup2019”.  

Retweeting this, Amitabh wrote, “Shift the tournament WC 2019 to India .. we need the rain .. !!!” Check it out below: 

Meanwhile, both the teams were awarded a point each as the match was called off.
