Bangladesh and Sri Lanka share spoils in World Cup as Bristol clash rained off
Last Updated: 11/06/19 2:31pm
Sri Lanka rose to fifth place in the table after their World Cup game against Bangladesh at Bristol was abandoned due to rain without a ball being bowled.
It was Sri Lanka's second washout of the tournament, following a similar outcome to their match against Pakistan on Friday - but the point gained was enough to lift them to fifth, level with England, India and Australia.
Their next fixture is against Australia at The Oval on Saturday, while Bangladesh - who take on West Indies at Taunton on Monday - also climbed a place to seventh in the table.
Persistent rain at Bristol prevented the umpires from inspecting the pitch and led them to call off the contest just before 2pm.
