Rain washed out the whole of the third day of the third Test between Australia and West Indies at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Tuesday.

- Scorecard

The covers stayed on the pitch all day as rain lashed down on the ground with play officially abandoned at 3:30 p.m (0430 GMT).

It was a further disruption in the dead rubber contest after three hours of day one and all but 11.2 overs of day two were lost to wet weather.

West Indies, already 2-0 down in the series after thumping defeats in Hobart and Melbourne, will have to wait until Wednesday to resume their first innings on 248 for seven.
