T20 WC : Afghanistan vs Ireland match abandoned due to rain

The Ireland vs Afghanistan match abandoned without a bowl balled due to rain at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday.

Both teams earn one point from the no-result, which lifts Ireland to three points after their shock victory over England on Wednesday. Afghanistan remain bottom of the Group on two points.

“It’s very disappointing, we’d played good cricket and were looking forward to this but can’t do much about the weather,” said Ireland captain Andrew Balbirnie.

“Most of the players are disappointed, not having played on such a fantastic ground [the MCG],” said Afghanistan captain Mohammad Nabi. “But the weather is not in our control, so we have to accept it. We look forward to the future games and hope to win.”
