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.
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.
