When India toured Bangladesh for a three match ODI series last year, all the three matches were hit by rain with a match getting called off. In order to prevent a similar scenario, the Bangladesh Cricket Board has factored in a reserve day for all three ODIs. It is a welcome move by the BCB but there is a confusion on how the reserved day will be utilised in case rain prevents the match to be completed on the scheduled day. 

According to a source from BCB, every effort will be made by the match officials to finish the match on the same day, failing which the remaining part of the game will be played the next day. 

The only concern is whether the D/L Method will be applied in case of a rain interruption on the match day is not clear. If it is, then the spillover quotient will be very low, defeating the very purpose of having a reserve day.

This comes after Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli’s comments about having a reserve day for Test Cricket which helped Bangladesh to draw the lone test match on Sunday. The three match ODI series begins on 18th June in Mirpur.
