The ongoing 20-20 World Cup 2022 is witnessing one of the best thrillers in the tournament’s history and it is also witnessing games getting washed out due to extreme weather conditions without a ball being bowled.
Although there have been epic clashes like India-Pakistan, Bangladesh-Zimbabwe, and Ireland-England in the ongoing showpiece event, great matches like England-Australia, and others got washed out due to rain.
As things stand, let us take a look at four epic face-offs that got washed out due to rain in the tournament:
1) New Zealand vs Afghanistan, Melbourne, Group 1
The New Zealand-Afghanistan clash was supposed to be one of the watch-out-for matches in the ongoing tournament. However, due to extreme weather conditions in Melbourne, the match was eventually called-off without a ball being bowled.
With each team taking home 1 point apiece, it spiced up the shape of Group 1 and the matches that followed turned out to be great ones as every team were chasing the net run rate and also the title simultaneously.
