Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s LIVE Cricket coverage of the Afghanistan vs Ireland, Super 12 match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Match Abandoned Due to Rain Without a Ball Being Bowled

It was on the cards as it has been raining relentlessly in Melbourne for the past 48 hours and this is such a shame. It was supposed to be a cracker of a game but Ireland and Afghanistan have to share the points as the match has been washed out. This World Cup is getting exciting as the tournament progresses with rain adding a bit of spice in it’s own ways. Right then, that’s all we have for you but do join us for the second match between Australia vs England in a while now. Again, it’s on the weather gods...

Rain Update @10:40: The rain hasn’t relented, so the toss inspection has been delayed further, informs our correspondent Shayan Acharya, who is stationed at the MCG Press Box.

While the prayers are on for the rain to stay away, munch on a Sportstar exclusive interview on the original T20 specialist - David Hussey.

WEATHER FORECAST

The threat of rain interruptions hovers over Friday’s 2022 T20 World Cup Super 12 match between England and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Melbourne experienced relentless showers on Wednesday, which forced the abandonment of New Zealand v Afghanistan match and handed a famous five-run win to Ireland over England via DLS method.

According to Bureau of Meteorology, there’s a 90 per cent chance of rain in Melbourne on Friday. “Cloudy. High (80%) chance of showers in the west, very high (95%) chance of showers in the east,” the website stated.

Our Correspondent Shayan Acharya Updates: The rain is back at the MCG again. It’s 3.28 pm local time and the covers are back. It’s been a challenging time for the ground staff to ensure that the wicket is covered. The next inspection is at 4pm local time, if the rain stops.

Melbourne Weather Update @ 9:45AM: The next inspection will be at 16:00 local times, approximately at 10:30AM IST and we are definitely looking at a curtailed match. There is more rain in store for today.

Melbourne Weather Update @ 9:30AM: Not looking good at the moment. It’s raining pretty heavily and we are in for a further delay. The entire square is covered up and although the groundsmen removed a part of it, the rain forced the sheets to be back in place.
