England v Australia: Third ODI washed out
Wednesday 11 September 2013
England must win the final two matches in Cardiff and Southampton to prevail in the NatWest Series, after rain prevented a result at Edgbaston.
The hosts trail 1-0, after defeat at Emirates Old Trafford and a washed-out opener in Leeds, in the five-match one-day international series.
Only 15.1 overs were possible in Birmingham - where England stumbled to 59 for three - before forecast bad weather set in this afternoon and then prevented any further play in the scheduled day-night fixture.
After Australia's 3-0 Ashes defeat and then a drawn two-match Twenty20 series, the tourists therefore remain in pole position to end their disappointing summer on a more encouraging note.
