England vs. Australia: Scorecard, Video Highlights, Recap from 3rd ODI

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterSeptember 11, 2013

The NatWest Series' miserable luck with the weather continued as the third one-day international between England and Australia was abandoned at Edgbaston.

Two of the three games so far have been forced off by the rain, meaning that Australia hold a 1-0 lead going into what is now effectively a best-of-three series.

The two sides clash again on Saturday in Cardiff and Monday in Southampton, bringing down the curtain on the international summer.

As opposed to the washout in Headingley, there was some play possible—England were put in to bat by Australia and put on 59-3 in 15.1 overs.

Michael Carberry was the victim of an ugly run out in the first over after a communication mix-up with opening partner Kevin Pietersen. 

Pietersen himself disappeared cheaply soon afterward, beaten for pace by a Mitchell Johnson bouncer and offering up a catch to square leg.

Just before the rain descended, Joe Root also fell, bested by part-time spinner Adam Voges.

The momentum was with Australia, as it has been so far in the series, but the light rain settled in and refused to lift, with a decision to abandon the game taken at around 7 p.m. local time.
