By India Today Web Desk: World champions Australia avoided a clean sweep against England as rain washed away the third and final T20I on Friday, October 14.

The match was abandoned after rain halted the curtailed third T20I again in Canberra. England posted 112/2 after being put into bat. Captain Jos Buttler hit an unbeaten 65 off 41 before England’s innings was reduced to 12 overs owing to rain.

Australia got an early breakthrough when Josh Hazlewood dismissed Alex Hales for a two-back duck. Buttler, along with Dawid Malan, quickly rebuilt the innings for the visitors.

Pat Cummins put breaks on England’s ticking scoreboard as he removed Malan (23). However, the incoming Ben Stokes played a quickfire knock of 17 not out to help England finish on a high.

In reply, Australia lost three wickets in quick succession, including two in the very first over, before the match was called off. In his 100th T20I, Aaron Finch was dismissed for a golden duck by Chris Woakes.

The England pacer continued to make inroads as he got rid of Mitchell Marsh for a golden duck too. Steve Smith, who missed the second T20I, and Marcus Stoinis were left stranded on 7 and 8 respectively.

Australia and England will now shift their focus to the upcoming T20 World Cup. Australia will play against India in a warm-up match on October 17, while England will meet Pakistan for a practice match on the same day.

Australia will begin their title defence at home against New Zealand in a re-match of the 2021 T20 World Cup final on October 22. The match will be played in front of a capacity crowd at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) as the Super 12 opener has been declared a sell out.
