Former champions Sri Lanka stand on the verge of an early departure from the T20 World Cup as their Group D encounter against Nepal in Lauderhill, Florida was abandoned due to heavy rainfall on Tuesday. The 2014 title holders were in dire need of a victory to sustain their tournament aspirations following losses to South Africa and Bangladesh in their initial two fixtures. Wanindu Hasaranga's squad is currently at the bottom of the group with only one point and appears destined to be eliminated unless favorable outcomes occur in other matches. Nepal, likewise, remains without a win after two games and is set to confront the undefeated group frontrunners, South Africa, on Friday. South Africa has secured their spot in the Super Eight after three consecutive wins. Forecasts indicate rain and thunderstorms for the rest of the week, during which India, Pakistan, Ireland, and Canada are scheduled to play in Florida.
