Twin washouts upset the summer for Gloucestershire

The two abandoned World Cup matches in Bristol could have cost Gloucestershire in the region of 10 to 20 thousand pounds, according to the county’s Chief Executive Will Brown. 
He described the two washouts as ‘massively gutting.’ 
The matches between Pakistan and Sri Lanka on Friday and between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka yesterday were both abandoned without a ball being bowled due to unseasonably wet weather. 
Although there was a full game at the County Ground between Australia and Afghanistan, the two washouts have been a huge disappointment for the county given the work which had gone into bidding and staging them. 
Although it is understood the ICC will foot the bill for the full ticket refunds that are due to spectators for the two called off matches, the lost revenue from catering and hospitality will make a ‘significant difference’ to Gloucestershire even if the final figure is as yet unknown. 
“To be honest we don’t know yet,” Brown said when asked how much the wet weather had cost them. 
“These are things that are four and a half years in the making since we bid for this tournament. It’s just really sad.”  
“I don’t think it’s massive because most of the revenue sits on ticketing. Our catering around the ground will definitely have taken a hit. It would be into the thousands.”
