Australia v Pakistan - Match abandoned

The third league game of the Videocon Cup, between Pakistan and Australia, was abandoned because of rain. This meant that Pakistan and Australia were through to the final, and India would miss out. None of the Australian bowlers had managed to get a bowl in the tournament, but it was a moot point whether their lack of match practice would help Pakistan's batsmen in the final - it had to stop raining first.
