The food prices are disclosed for the T20 World Cup

Food prices at England's T20 World Cup opener against Scotland in Barbados have been disclosed. The match, which marked England's World Cup defence at the Kensington Oval, was short-lived due to inclement weather.

Scotland's opening batsmen, George Munsey and Michael Jones, put up an unbroken 90-run partnership in 10 overs, later adjusted to 109. The game concluded in a draw as the weather disrupted play, leaving England without a chance to respond, intensifying their focus on Saturday's match against Australia.

The Barmy Army, England's cricket supporters' club, shared the menu prices, revealing that a plate of fish and chips cost fans £15.55 or $40 (Barbadian dollars), while the cheapest option, a hotdog, was priced at £3.89 or $10.

Despite the anticipation, the day commenced with rain, causing disruptions, and setting a tone that continued throughout the match.

When the game finally commenced, England's performance seemed worryingly below par. Mark Wood's fourth ball, renowned for its pace, was fiercely struck over mid-on by Munsey, while Jofra Archer's initial over provided Jones with too much room to manoeuvre.

The fielding also faltered, with midfielders adding to England's woes. Their hopes of a breakthrough soared momentarily when Munsey appeared to edge Wood to Buttler, only for replays to reveal a no-ball.

Jones, who had batted at No. 7 for Durham just days before, then sent Chris Jordan's delivery soaring onto the roof of the Greenridge & Haynes stand, denting both a solar panel and English pride. The game was halted due to rain when Scotland was at 51 without loss after 6.2 overs. When the match resumed as a 10-over contest, both Wood and Archer had already exhausted their two-over allocations.

Adil Rashid's first over proved costly, conceding 18 runs, leaving Scotland in a commanding position and England still seeking their first win in five T20 World Cup encounters against European opponents.
