Ireland's opening game in the three-match T20 series against Zimbabwe at Stormont was abandoned following rain.

Wednesday's match was scheduled to start at the Belfast venue at 12:30 BST but was called off at 15:00 because of a wet outfield.

The remaining two matches in the T20 series will take place at Londonderry venue on Friday and Sunday.

Ireland have already earned a 3-0 victory over the tourists in a one-day series.
