Afghanistan vs Ireland match washed out at T20 World Cup | Cricket News


MELBOURNE: The Ireland-Afghanistan match at the T20 World Cup was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday, leaving the teams to split the points.
It was winless Afghanistan’s second washout in the Super 12s after their New Zealand match in Melbourne on Wednesday was abandoned due to bad weather.
The no result left Ireland second in Group 1 with three points from three games behind leaders New Zealand, although the Black Caps have a game in hand.
Afghanistan remain at the bottom of the group on two points.
The weather could still shape the group, with fifth-placed Australia and fourth-placed England, each on two points, scheduled to play the late game at the MCG.
