The fifth day of the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier 2015 was hit by a second washout when the much-awaited Group B game between Afghanistan and Kenya was abandoned without a ball bowled in Stirling on Monday (July 13).

Earlier in the day, the Group A match between Hong Kong and Papua New Guinea was also abandoned after persistent rain and a wet outfield at the Bready Cricket Club.

Both Afghanistan and Kenya are yet to lose a match in the competition, and given the brand of cricket the two teams have played so far, the game was expected to be an enthralling one.

After the points were split, Afghanistan remained on top of the points table with seven points from four matches, followed by Kenya in second spot with five points from three matches.

Kenya will now have to wait till Tuesday to try and go past Afghanistan when it faces Scotland in Edinburgh. Afghanistan, meanwhile, is up against Oman in its next match on Wednesday.
