The Ireland-Afghanistan match at the T20 World Cup was halted at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday without a bowl being thrown due to rain, forcing the teams to split the points. It was Afghanistan’s second washout in the Super 12s after their New Zealand game in Melbourne was canceled on Wednesday due to bad weather.
The no result left Ireland second in Group 1 by three points after three games behind the leading New Zealand, although the Black Caps have a game in hand. Afghanistan remains at the bottom of the group on two points.
Weather could still shape the group, with fifth-seeded Australia and fourth-seeded England, each with two points, slated to play the late game in the MCG.
