So far, three matches have been washed out in the ongoing tournament and the weather predictions for the upcoming matches - including that of the high-voltage clash between India and Pakistan - is not good.
"Factoring in a reserve day for every match. would significantly increase the length of the tournament and practically would be extremely complex to deliver", he said in a statement.
On June 7, the tie between Pakistan and Sri Lanka was also abandoned without a ball being bowled.
As per Met department's report, United Kingdom is experiencing twice the average rainfall in June. ICC, on the other hand, have defended their decisions by blaming the disruptions on "extremely unseasonable weather".
"It would impact pitch preparation, team recovery and travel days, accommodation and venue availability, tournament staffing, volunteer and match officials availability, broadcast logistics and very importantly the spectators who in some instances have travelled hours to be at the game".
The abandoned matches could impact a team's position on the points table during the business end of the tournament. "There is also no guarantee that the reserve day would be free from rain either", Richardson was quoted as saying in the ICC press release.
"We have experienced more than twice the average monthly rainfall for June which is usually the third driest month in the UK".
The International Cricket Council has been severely criticized by many for not keeping reserve days of play for the group league matches.
"In 2018, there was just 2 mm of rain in June but the last 24 hours alone has seen around 100mm fall in the south-east of England", said the former South Africa wicketkeeper.
"When a match is affected by weather conditions, the venue team work closely with Match Officials and Ground Staff to ensure that we have the best possible opportunity to play cricket, even if it is a reduced overs game".
"The umpiring in this game has been atrocious", Holding said on live TV.
"I know logistically, it would have been a big headache for the tournament organisers. but we have got quite a lot of time in between games, and if we have got to travel a day later, then so be it". Bangladesh coach Steve Rhodes said.
"The horse is out of the shed if that's the right wording".
"We are allowed to analyse players" strengths and weaknesses, pick apart players' techniques and faults yet when an umpire makes a cockup he is supposed to be protected?' As a former cricketer, I think cricket should be held to a higher standard.
