Ireland Women's second T20 international against Netherlands at Malahide has been abandoned after heavy rain flooded the outfield.

A formal inspection was taken at 3pm, with officials then set to take another look at the pitch ahead of the scheduled 4pm start.

However, with rain having returned, the match was called off and Wednesday's reserve day will be used to play the match with a 4pm start.

Ireland had won the opening T20 in Dublin by 28 runs, helped by a half-century from captain Laura Delany.

The two remaining fixtures of the four-match series are set for Thursday and Friday, as the Irish team continue preparations for the Women's T20 World Cup European qualifiers in Spain next month.
