England match rained off

Tewkesbury Admag: There was nothing the groundstaff could do as the third ODI was rained off There was nothing the groundstaff could do as the third ODI was rained off

England will have to wait for their chance to go top of the world one-day international rankings after a frustrating washout against Australia at Edgbaston.

Several times over on Wednesday, it seemed as if the third NatWest Series match might be about to get under way - albeit in a shortened format - only for rain to dash plans.

Finally, at 6.10pm umpires Aleem Dar and Rob Bailey announced an abandonment which leaves England 2-0 up with two to play.

They can no longer therefore complete the 5-0 series whitewash they need to depose Australia at number one in the International Cricket Council rankings, and become the first team to top the table in all three formats.
