Former Australian cricketer Mark Waugh has poked fun at the world cricket governing body – International Cricket Council (ICC), for not scheduling reserve days in the knockout fixtures of one of the major ICC events.
A recent example of the same was seen on Thursday in the ongoing ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 when the England women’s team was eliminated from the tournament as the game was washed away due to heavy rain in Sydney.
Keeping in view the torrential pour down, the teams had appealed to the international body – to keep reserve days for the knockout round of the tournament, but ICC didn’t approve of it and now the English women have suffered its consequence.

Not as surprising as ICC not scheduling reserve days for finals in the biggest tournament of the year and possibly lifetime for many players. Absolutely absurd.#commonsense
