Since everyone was talking about rain and cricket scheduling. I did some digging in the past. We can analyze the data.
One thing i get is WI and Aus are one of the worst place to organize a tournament while subcontinent usually goes without rain delays.

Cricket is a laughing stock. England have had 2 games washed out (if things stay as they are). Only sport in the world where teams don't play even number of games. A joke. Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Ireland impacted although none of those sides deserve to progress.
