Ireland were knocked out of the World T20, after persistent rain resulted in another washout against Bangladesh in Dharamsala. Play was called off at 10:20pm local time, after rain had stopped the game after eight overs in the Bangladesh innings.

Now, the Bangladesh-Oman encounter will decide who goes through from Group A, with both teams on three points each while the Netherlands and Ireland are on one point each.

The match was always at the mercy of the weather after rain forced the Oman-Netherlands game earlier in the afternoon to be abandoned. Rain had stopped at around 7:30pm and allowed the match to start at 9:45pm, but it relented for just over an hour.
