Rain played spoilsport in the ICC Champions Trophy league match between Australia and New Zealand in Birmingham on Wednesday. Both teams got a point each after from the abandoned Group A game, which was halted with New Zealand, replying to Australia's competitive 243 for eight in 50 overs, were struggling at 51 for two after 15.

- Scorecard

Having lost their opening match to England, the solitary point from the match did little to help Australia's chances of making the semi-finals.

Here are some statistical highlights from the match:

# Mitchell McClenaghan set a record by claiming four wickets in two consecutive games in the ICC Champions Trophy. With eight wickets (avg. 13.50), he is the leading wicket-taker in the ongoing tournament.

# McClenaghan's tally of 26 wickets, at 17.03 runs apiece, including four four-wicket instances, is the most by any bowler in his first nine matches in ODIs.
