It was the second match of the day after Ireland v Afghanistan to be washed out at the MCG, and means all four sides take a point each in their hunt for a place in the semi-finals.

New Zealand lead Group, one on three points — the same as England, Ireland, and Australia, but the Black Caps, have a better net run rate and have played a game less.

Sri Lanka and Afghanistan have two points. The top two will reach the semi-finals.

Four matches have now been rained off at the tournament in Australia.
