Rain saw the day/night third one-day international between England and Australia at Edgbaston on Wednesday end as a no-result washout.

Only 15.1 overs were possible, with England collapsing to 59 for three, before rain, which had delayed the scheduled start, returned at 3:34pm local time and saw the umpires take the players off the field.
