Australia vs England - Match abandoned
Unrelenting rain in Adelaide washed out the third T20I of the Women's Ashes between Australia and England without a ball bowled.
Just 24 hours after only 4.1 overs were possible in the second T20I at the same venue, another day of lashing rain left the two sides frustrated, with only one match of the all-format series producing a result so far - Australia winning the first game by nine wickets.
Australia lead the points table 4-2 after the two teams shared points for the second straight day. The two squads will now head to Canberra for the one-off Test match, starting on Thursday, hoping for better luck with the weather.
Australia will be without fast bowler Tayla Vlaeminck after the home side confirmed on Sunday that she had suffered another stress fracture in her foot, ruling her out of both the Ashes and the upcoming 50-over World Cup in New Zealand.
