The toss of the second ODI between Bangladesh and Ireland was delayed due to rain at County Ground in Chelmsford, England.

The outcome is learnt from the Cricket Ireland tweet.

"Rain is falling and the toss has been delayed. The umpires are out in the middle inspecting," the tweet said.

The first game between the two sides was washed out due to rain and effectively ruined Ireland's chance to have direct qualification to the ODI World Cup in India. Ireland needed to win all three matches to make a direct entry to the cricket's extravaganza. Now, they will have to play the Qualifiers.
