PAK vs IRE: Toss for second ODI delayed due to rain

DUBLIN: The toss for the second ODI between Pakistan and Ireland has been delayed due to rain, TheNewsTribe.com reported.

The umpires were just going to enter the field for the toss when it began to rain.

The rain is still falling here at Malahide, it has started to get a bit brighter but the water just keeps coming down from the sky.

With more rain on the way it really doesn’t look good for the game today. The fact that the groundstaff have started dismantling the advertising hoardings shows you what they think!

Cricket Ireland have just tweeted “Groundsman has advised that play will not be possible before at least 1pm (local) and. Still raining at the moment.”
