The Group D clash between Sri Lanka and Nepal met a soggy fate as incessant rain in Florida. The match held significant stakes for both teams, who aimed to secure their first win after previous defeats, but relentless downpour dashed their hopes, leaving their Super 8 ambitions hanging by a thread.

‌A throng of passionate Sri Lankan and Nepalese supporters braved the challenging Florida conditions to gather at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground. Despite their enthusiasm, the weather proved relentless with rain pouring down throughout the day and forecasts predicting more to come. After an hour of hopeful waiting, match officials ultimately called off the game due to the wet outfield and persistent heavy rain warnings.

Nepal had already faced a setback in their opening game against the Netherlands, but they showcased remarkable resilience. Despite posting a modest total of 106, the Nepalese side fought valiantly, extending the match to the 19th over. The Netherlands clinched victory by six wickets with only eight balls to spare. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka’s tournament began on a disastrous note. In their opener against South Africa, the Wanindu Hasaranga-led team was skittled out for a mere 77, suffering a heavy defeat.

With the washout, South Africa soared into the Super 8 from Group D, securing their spot with 6 points.
