Rain played a huge part in both the T20 World Cup matches on Wednesday. In the first game, Ireland won by five runs over England via DLS method, after rain played a spoilsport during the Super 12 clash at the Melbourne Stadium on Wednesday. The second match between Afghanistan and New Zealand was also scheduled to be held in the same stadium but got washed out without a ball being bowled due to rain. Earlier, Australia registered their first win of the T20 World Cup 2022 after they defeated Sri Lanka in a Group 1 clash by seven wickets. Apart from Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, England and Ireland have registered wins in the Group 1 of the T20 World Cup 2022.
