There are questions that cricket fans all over the world would want to ask from the ICC – “Why chose England for World Cup 2019?” “Why not have alternate venues during rains?” “Why ruin an event that comes in 4 years?” Witnessing four washout games in the tournament, the fans are looking very disappointed and desperate, as they want an answer from the ruling body.
Frustrated Fans demand an answer from ICC
After the game between India vs New Zealand which got abandoned due to rain, frustrated Indian cricket fans showed out their anger on Twitter and blamed it on the ICC for choosing England to host the World Cup. The hashtag #ShameOnICC trended on Twitter for the entire day.
Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka, West Indies vs South Africa, Sri Lanka vs Pakistan and India vs New Zealand – all went down the drain without a ball being bowled.
A cricket fan tweeted, Shame on #ICC for organizing such an important tournament at such a time when half the matches are getting washed away! Get a life folks, and concentrate on the right timing of the tournament rather than on the right glove of #Dhoni!!! #WorldCup2019

Amitabh Bachchan Joined the Tweet
Replying to one such tweet, Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan demanded a change in venue for the tournament. He wanted it to be held in India but not just because he wants to watch the matches in the country but also to get rains and get respite from the scorching heat.
