The rainy weather that washed out Australia's game against Bangladesh at The Oval on Monday spilled over into the next morning, forcing India to cancel its training session.

Virat Kohli's men were scheduled to hold a practice session at the London School of Economics on Tuesday morning. After training, some players were due to conduct a coaching clinic as part of the ICC's Cricket for Good programme. But both events were cancelled owing to heavy rain.

Australia was frustrated on Monday, when a match it was on course to win comfortably was abandoned. India, which is set to face Sri Lanka at The Oval in two days' time, now has reason to worry. The forecast for Thursday is not good; the Met Office has predicted that it will be the wettest day of the rest of the week, with a 60 per cent chance of rain in the afternoon.
