    Rain plays spoilsport in England-Australia 3rd ODI at Edgbaston

    Rain saw the day/night third one-day international between England and Australia at Edgbaston on Wednesday end as a no-result washout.

    Only 15.1 overs were possible, with England collapsing to 59 for three, before rain, which had delayed the scheduled start, returned at 3:34pm local time and saw the umpires take the players off the field.

    A minimum of 20 overs per side were needed for a result to be declared, but while the teams were back in the pavilion the rain intensified and the umpires eventually abandoned the match at 7:05pm.

    Australia lead the five-match series 1-0 after their 88-run win in the second ODI at Old Trafford on Sunday followed Friday's washout in Leeds. The fourth one-day international is in Cardiff on Saturday.
