CricketT20 World Cup 2022: England vs Australia match abandoned due to rain at MCG

Srinagar: In another setback, another match of the day in T20 World Cup 2022, Australia vs England was abandoned after persistant rain at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday.

Rain stayed away in the build-up to the contest, raising hopes that the teams could take to the field and the action would get underway. But just before a scheduled inspection, the showers returned leading to the match being called off. This was the second match of the day in Melbourne to be abandoned without a ball being bowled after Afghanistan v Ireland.

The two teams share points, which has massive implications for Group 1. New Zealand stay on top with 3 points, courtesy of a better net run rate. They are followed by England (3 points), Ireland (3 points), Australia (3 points), Sri Lanka (2 points) and Afghanistan (2 points).

The next match from the group is scheduled to be played between New Zealand and Sri Lanka tomorrow at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with the winners having a chance to cement their position at the top of the standings in Group 1.
