In a disappointing turn of events for cricket fans, the much-anticipated clash between Nepal and Sri Lanka at the ICC T20 World Cup in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was called off due to persistent rain. Both teams, languishing at the bottom of Group D after consecutive losses, were eager to salvage their tournament with a win.

The match, originally scheduled for a 7:30 PM local start, was pushed back to 9:00 PM in a desperate attempt to get some play underway. However, the relentless rain forced organizers to abandon the contest altogether. This result means Nepal and Sri Lanka will share points, offering a glimmer of hope for their respective qualification chances.

This marked Nepal’s second fixture of the tournament, following a narrow defeat to the Netherlands in their opening match. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, were also looking for their first win after a poor start. The passionate Nepalese fans, who braved the wet weather to create a strong presence at the Central Broward Regional Park, were left heartbroken by the cancellation.
