Ireland vs Afghanistan Match called off due to rain
Rain forced the cancellation of Friday’s Ireland-Afghanistan T20 World Cup match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, leaving the teams to share the points. Following the cancellation of their game against New Zealand in Melbourne on Wednesday due to bad weather, it was Afghanistan’s second Super 12 washout.
Ireland now sits in the second position in Group 1 with three points after the draw, three points behind group leaders New Zealand, who have a game remaining. With two points, Afghanistan remains at the bottom of the Group.
With fifth-placed Australia and fourth-placed England having two points and scheduled to play late at the MCG, the weather might still impact Group.
