The match between New Zealand and Afghanistan in Group 1 was called off owing to continuous rains in Melbourne. After the game washed out, both teams have to settle for one point each.
Firstly, the toss was delayed, but after waiting for a long time and looking at the weather condition, the board decided to call off the match.
Ireland had a well-deserved win over England earlier in the day, and Afghanistan would have hoped for a similar result against New Zealand, but it was not the case here. Both teams were disappointed, but New Zealand was more so following their thrashing win over Australia. That concludes today’s discussion. Tomorrow will be an action-packed triple-header. South Africa takes on Bangladesh first at the SCG, followed by India vs. the Netherlands at the same site. Pakistan will play Zimbabwe later that night in Perth.
