ICC decided to refund the money of the tickets of BD vs SL clash
The biggest cricket festival, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is going steadily into its’ mid stages. But the whole tournament is under the big threat of rain as three games washed out so far within two weeks of time. And the most recent washed out game was between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka on Tuesday, June 11 in Bristol.
And normally fans were frustrated with that. Even the toss was not happened for the match but the stadium was filled with the supporters. Bangladeshi fans maybe disheartened mostly by the abandoned match as they were present in the amount of 95 percent almost in the stadium to support Bangladesh team. But they had to return home without any entertainment.
The lowest price of the ticket of Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka match was above two thousand in BDT. Rain disheartened the supporters but ICC didn’t. The global governing body of cricket, International Cricket Council (ICC) decided to refund the money which they paid for the tickets.
ICC also announced the refund policy some days ago, which was like that: “If play is restricted or does not take place at the Venue on the day for which a Ticket is valid, including any Reserve Day, the Ticket purchaser may claim a refund of the Original Sale Price of that Ticket (excluding fees) subject to there being: (a) 15 overs or less because of adverse weather conditions – a full refund; (b) 15.1 overs to 29.5 overs because of adverse weather conditions – a 50% refund.”
However, Sri Lankan fans will get more frustration than the Bangladeshi fans as their consecutive two matches had been washed out for the rain. But it was obviously a great step by ICC to refund their paid money. For fans who travel far and long for these matches, the refund probably won’t be palatable, yet this should be the best technique for repayment.
