Heavy rain lashes Thiruvananthapuram. It's been pouring since last night. Unless there's a drastic change in weather, a 2pm start to the India vs The Netherlands #WorldCup fixture looks impossible. @sportstarweb pic.twitter.com/fs7Sj2umjp— Shayan Acharya (@ShayanAcharya) October 3, 2023
Rain-affected Warm-Up Matches:
Both India and the Netherlands had their initial warm-up matches disrupted by uncooperative weather conditions. India was originally slated to face England on September 30th in Guwahati, but heavy rainfall washed away any chances of cricketing action. Similarly, the Netherlands managed to play a truncated match against Australia, where they were reduced to 84-6, but even this encounter was ultimately rained out.
