Warm-up matches are being played these days in the ICC 2022 Men’s T20 World Cup but the last four matches have been canceled due to rain. Not a single ball was played in the three matches played today. Earlier, the warm-up match played on Wednesday was abandoned due to rain. It is definitely a setback for all the teams that were involved in these matches. Due to the cancellation of matches, the teams have not got a chance to get into the rhythm and their preparations can definitely get affected.
Zimbabwe was to face Namibia in the sixth warm-up match. This was the second warm-up match for both the teams. Zimbabwe had lost their first match against Sri Lanka by 33 runs, while Namibia beat Ireland by 11 runs.
Sri Lanka and Ireland were to meet in the seventh warm-up but the match was canceled due to rain. Sri Lanka had won in their first warm-up while Ireland had to face defeat.
Scotland and UAE were to meet in today’s third and eighth warm-up match of the tournament. Scotland had won their first match, while the UAE had lost. This match was also called off without a toss.
Earlier yesterday, West Indies and Netherlands were to face each other in the fifth warm-up match. In this match too, not a single ball game was possible due to rain. West Indies won and Netherlands lost in their first warm-up match.
All the teams playing in the first round have played their warm-up matches. At the same time, the warm-up matches will start from August 17 between the eight teams making direct place in the Super 12.
