Ireland-Afghanistan ODI abandoned

Persistent rain forces first game of five-match series to be called off without a ball being bowled

Ireland-Afghanistan ODI abandoned - Cricket News
Persistent rain washed out the first ODI between Ireland and Afghanistan.
Persistent rain washed out the first One-Day International between Ireland and Afghanistan without a ball being bowled in Stormont on Sunday (July 10).
Roly Black and Ian Ramage, the on-field umpires, waited for over four hours expecting the weather to clear, but by the time rain stopped, there was no possibility of the waterlogged outfield at the Civil Service Cricket Club drying up, leading to the match being abandoned.
With no reserve day pencilled in, the match went down as a no-result. The second ODI of the five-match series will be held at the same venue on Tuesday.
Afghanistan came into the game on the back of a 1-0 win in the two-match ODI series against Scotland, where too the first match had been washed out.
