Fans Were Happy to Have a Full Match

England have now won three out of the four matches it has played. On the other hand, this was West Indies' second loss in the tournament after their match against South Africa was abandoned due to rain. The sunshine in the later stages of the match was a welcome sight after the match between India and New Zealand was washed away due to the rain and wet outfield. Fans are praying that rain keeps away from the further matches in ICC CWC 2019, especially during the India vs Pakistan match to be played on Sunday, June 16 at Manchester.
