Third England-Australia ODI washed out

July 05, 2012 00:16 IST

The third One-day International between England and Australia at Edgbaston in Birmingham was abandoned due to rain on Wednesday without a ball being bowled.

The match, which had been due to start at 1300 GMT, was delayed after persistent showers left the outfield waterlogged.

A break in the weather allowed the umpires to schedule a 28-over-aside contest but the rain returned and the match was called off.

England lead the series 2-0 with the fourth match scheduled for Durham on Saturday.
