Full commentary

So that's it for today. On behalf of Alex, Andrew and Vairavan, this is Srivathsa signing off from comms. Do catch up on all the action and analysis on this platform. We will be back tomorrow for game 3. Till then take care and stay safe. Ta, ta!

3:30pm local: The game has been abandoned. A steady band of rain has put an end to proceedings. Both teams get a point each from this game and we move onto the next one which is on the same ground tomorrow. Let's hope the weather does not play spoilsport in that one.

Jack: "Still raining pretty steadily here in Adelaide. Think this one is all over unfortunately."

Thanks Alex! Let's hope the rain clears soon and we can get in a shortened game at least.

3pm The latest start time we can recommence is 3.53pm. We need a minimum of five overs per side to constitute a match. Srivathsa Vennelaganti will step into commentary while the rain falls.

2.48pm Rain halts play. It is coming down hard now. Full covers are coming on. Here is the band of rain coming through. There is a clear patch behind it but this will be here for a little bit.

PeterWarrington: "Surprised to see England go with only the two pace bowlers and Sciver again. 4 spinners seems excessive?" Clearly a bit spooked by the ease of Australia's chase the other night.
