The highly-anticipated contest between Australia and England has been abandoned due to rain
by Cricket World Friday 28 October 2022
The second Group 1 game at the MCG between host Australia and England was abandoned without a ball being bowled. The rains had eased up, but the outfield was not fit enough for the ground to stage a contest.
Finally around 8.48 pm Melbourne time the match was called off. Both England and Australia had to settle for a point each.
Toss: No toss
Venue: Melbourne Cricket Ground
Match officials: Chris Brown, Joel Wilson (On-field Umpires); Adrian Holdstock (TV Umpire); Aleem Dar (Reserve Umpire); Ranjan Madugalle (Match-referee)
