With the rain gods transpiring in the cities of Bristol, Hampshire and Nottingham alike, the ICC Cricket World Cup has taken a halt to an extent that three of the last four matches have been abandoned due to rain.

This has led to the fans being devoid of any action they were bracing themselves for, and the points tally has been affected to extent as well. One of the casualties of the termination of the games have been Sri Lanka, who have seen their last two games being washed out. And the recent victim… The Men in Blue as well as the Kiwis.

A game which could have seen India topping the chart – if only they had conquered the Kiwis – saw not even the toss being scheduled and the stakes were shared, leaving New Zealand on the top while India now acquire third due to incessant rain.

Reacting to all the hustle, Indian all-rounder Kedar Jadhav decided went out his solicitation by making a humble plea to the rain gods, asking them to travel all the way from England to his home state of Maharashtra, as it continues to face drought. It is believed that only 7 per cent of water is available for consumption as of now.

Fans and players alike, let’s just hope the demigods do listen to the Indian all-rounder.
