On Tuesday, both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka were left staring at the sky, waiting for some divine intervention after the start of their key match was delayed due to heavy rains.
It's the second match abandoned at this World Cup, an unwanted record in tournament history. I would say that it's disappointing for the crowd, as well.
Sri Lanka is now placed sixth in the points table of the ongoing World Cup in England and Wales with three points from as many matches.
"I'm very, very happy with the way we play the white ball, particularly when it's short", Rhodes said.
It was the second successive World Cup match at Bristol that had fallen victim to bad weather, with Sri Lanka´s group game against Pakistan at southwest county Gloucestershire´s headquarters on Friday also a no-result washout.
Rain has also been forecast for Wednesday's match between Australia and Pakistan in Taunton.
We played a practice game against Australia.
He had a match to forget in the opening 10-wicket defeat by New Zealand when he conceded 46 runs in five overs without taking a wicket but bounced back with 3-39 in the 34-run victory over Afghanistan. So we are well aware of what they have got and we know what's coming and we've got some plans to try and deal with that. I think you've seen some of our games in particular against South Africa, that didn't worry us.
Meanwhile, Lasith Malinga played a significant role in the only game Sri Lanka won.
Sri Lanka will now face Australia this Saturday at 9.30pm while Bangladesh will take on West Indies 9.30pm next Monday.
"But we know we've got some good players ourselves, so we won't be worrying too much about who we're playing against, and we'll be hopeful that they are going to worry about some of our players".
