Canberra T20I washed out; England take series 2-0

England 112 for 2 (Buttler 65*) vs Australia 30 for 3 (Woakes 3-4)
Match abandoned

Canberra: England missed the chance to complete a series clean sweep over Australia when their third Twenty20 match in Canberra was curtailed because of rain.

Two rain delays had already seen the match reduced to 12 overs per side, but a third delay three overs into Australia's reply saw the game called off.

Australia, chasing a Duckworth-Lewis-Stern-revised total of 130, were 30-3 at that stage, with Chris Woakes taking all three wickets, including two in the first two balls of the innings.

England had earlier reached 112-2 either side of two stoppages, with captain Jos Buttler smashing 65 from just 41 balls.

They now have just one more warm-up game against Pakistan on Monday before their World Cup opener against Afghanistan on 22 October.

There has been some terrible weather on Australia's east coast over the last 24 hours driven by a La Niña weather pattern, with widespread flooding across three states.

However, the skies cleared in time for the start of play at the Manuka Oval to raise hopes of a full match.

But after being put in to bat after losing the toss for the third successive game, the rain soon returned, meaning England were never able to get into a rhythm.

They lost Alex Hales in the second over when he nicked a Josh Hazlewood delivery straight to Aaron Finch at first slip, but Buttler and Dawid Malan guided England to 49-1 after 6.2 overs when the rain first arrived.
