CRICKET WORLD CUP 2019 – A World Cup of Rains and Injuries

Cricket World Cup 2019 was the World Cup of rain and injuries. Most of the matches got affected due to the rain or many top players also got injured through out the tournament.

Cricket World Cup 2019 has been the World Cup of rain and injuries. Cricket lovers from all over the world wait for the quadrennial series but the CWC 2019 has been disappointing for all viewers watching the match on the ground or from home. Cricket lovers save their leaves for the tournament, some go to the stadium and some watch it at home. But two factors became a hindrance in their enjoyment of watching CWC 2019 – RAIN and INJURIES.

It’s a matter of concern for every team how to save their players from injuries and how to avoid matches which are going to end without any results due to rain. But the problem lies that we don’t have control over nature and we can’t ask our players to not put their 100 percent on the cricket field. 

All the details of  Cricket World Cup 2019 here.

Teams never know when an injury will strike them. So the team who has a good bench of backups in place of those injured players is most likely to do well in the tournament. As skipper Eon Morgan rightly said, teams which manage their injuries better and have good bench strength will go far in the World Cup.

INJURIES so far…..

As we already know the jinx on South Africa, they don’t perform well in the World Cup but 2019 became one of the worst World Cup for them. It started when Dale Steyn got ruled out of the tournament with the shoulder injury followed by Lungi Ngidi who faced left hamstring after playing the first two matches. Hasim Amla missed the match against Bangladesh after a ball hit his head.

Niggles and hamstrings strike our players day after day. Andre Russel was out from a match due to injury but luckily the match didn’t happen due to the rain. Among other players who suffered from injuries were England’s opener Jason Roy and strike bowler Liam Plunket. England’s injured players would be back soon but England had to play some matches without them.

India’s opener Shikar Dhawan also suffered a hairline fracture in his left thumb and was ruled out for the next few matches. The same story was repeated for India’s strike bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar who suffered from hamstring injury. Australia’s middle order batsman Marcus Stoinis also picked up a side strain against India’s match.

Matches went from bad to worst due to rains

Rain is playing more than any team in this tournament. Fans are running out of patience because of the rain. “Rain rain go away, let the poor World Cup get the play,” “Cricket World Cup or Rain Cup,” “Rains stops play,” are the headlines read all over the social networking accounts of Cricket lovers.

Only a single match was abandoned due to rains in the 1979, 1996, 1999, and 2011 World Cup, two in 1992 and 2003, and none in 1975, 1983, 1987, 2007, and 2015. In its 12th edition in 2019, five matches were abandoned due to rain and three matches have results after Duckworth Lewis method, while more than half the matches of this tournament are yet to be played.

Sri Lanka was the most affected by rains. With two of their games called off, they now have a lesser chance to make it to the semis. South Africa has some sort of relation with rains. South Africa vs West Indies Match was left incomplete. The India vs New Zealand Match was also abandoned without a single ball being played. And both teams shared one point for the game. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh Match was also abandoned without a ball bowled. Australia was the only team which didn’t get affected by rains so far.

Let’s hope that this duo Rain and Injuries won’t spoil the further matches of the tournament.
