Live Updates

No action from this match. That would be all for the coverage of this match. Thanks for being along with us. Join us tomorrow as we have as many as three matches in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 lined up. Bye for now.

The news from the Melbourne Cricket Ground is disappointing as the match has been called off. New Zealand and Ireland will share a point each from this washed out match. 

Oct 26, 2022 3:53 PM

There is no stopping the rain at the MCG for the moment. The cut-off time for a 5-over match is 10.04 PM local time. The clocks in Melbourne are showing 9.17 pm. So we need to get the action underway, in another 30 minutes or the match will be called off. 

Oct 26, 2022 3:47 PM

Just when the umpires were expected to inspect the field and the pitch more rain has arrived at the MCG. Any play in the next 30 minutes or so seems highly unlikely. 

Oct 26, 2022 3:24 PM

The rain continues to delay the start of the match. It has rained a lot already and more rain is expected in some time. 

Oct 26, 2022 3:11 PM

It continues to rain at the Melbourne Cricket Ground! 

Oct 26, 2022 2:57 PM

We have reached that time of the match where the umpires will start reducing the overs. 

Oct 26, 2022 2:41 PM

Some good news folks as the rain have stopped and the covers are coming off. The umpires are likely to inspect the field and the pitch at around 8 pm local time which is just a minute or two away now! 

Oct 26, 2022 2:30 PM

We are nowhere near to getting the second match started at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. If the rain continues to persist at the MCG we will start losing overs for the New Zealand vs Afghanistan match. 

Oct 26, 2022 2:02 PM

The rain continues to pelt heavily at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. A few Afghan fans have made their way inside the stadium. But for the moment they will have to be patient before they can see their heroes in action. 

Oct 26, 2022 1:57 PM

It has started raining heavily over the MCG. Ireland vs England match has come to a close with Ireland beating England by 5 runs on the DLS method. But we are not sure when this match will get underway. 

Oct 26, 2022 1:33 PM

And we have a result in the England vs Ireland match. The Irishmen have shocked the Englishmen at the biggest cricket stage once more. Ireland has beaten England in a World Cup match yet again. This also makes Group 1 interesting. 

Oct 26, 2022 1:26 PM

This match doesn't start unless the England vs Ireland match outcome is known. And also the start of the New Zealand vs Afghanistan match would also depend if the rain continues to persist over the Big G.  

Oct 26, 2022 1:23 PM

The England and Ireland players have taken shelter as rain continues to pelt at the MCG. The cut-off time for that match is some five to six minutes away. If the match doesn't get underway in time, then Ireland would have pulled off another famous win over England in a World Cup. 

Oct 26, 2022 1:20 PM

The start of the match between New Zealand and Afghanistan has been delayed as the preceding match between England and Ireland is still in play. The England vs Ireland match also had a delayed start due to rain. That match has not been completed. And there is a twist as the rain has interrupted the England vs Ireland match again.
