Melbourne: The match between Ireland (IRE) and Afghanistan (AFG) was abandoned due to heavy rain in Melbourne without a ball being bowled. Each team will be awarded a point. A very similar situation is expected for Australia (AUS) and England (ENG) as both the teams will face each other at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
The match between Afghanistan and Ireland was scheduled to start at 9:30 am (IST). Due to relentless rain in Melbourne this match was cancelled.
In the last game, Ireland won against England. Afghanistan’s match against New Zealand was called off due to heavy rain.
Traditional Group 1 rivals England and Australia will also play each other today, but looking at the weather in Melbourne it looks like the game could be interrupted like Ireland and Afghanistan.
So far, three matches have been scheduled for Afghanistan, of which two matches were called off due to heavy rain. Both Australia and England have played two matches each and won one match. Ireland played three matches of which they won one match.
The match between Australia and England is scheduled for 1:30 PM (IST) at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
