Australia vs England has been abandoned due to rain
Australia vs England Rain stayed away in the build-up to the contest, raising hopes that the teams could take to the field and the action would get underway. But just before a scheduled inspection, the showers returned leading to the match being called off. This was the second match of the day in Melbourne to be abandoned without a ball being bowled after Afghanistan v Ireland.
The next match from the group is scheduled to be played between New Zealand and Sri Lanka tomorrow at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with the winners having a chance to cement their position at the top of the standings in Group 1.
