Women's Ashes: England v Australia second T20 abandoned because of rain

Danni Wyatt hit two boundaries in a promising start before heavy rain returned

Jan 22: England's second Twenty20 against Australia in the Women's Ashes was abandoned after only 4.1 overs at the Adelaide Oval because of rain.

Each side gets one point and holders Australia now lead the multi-format series 3-1 following their victory in the first T20.

After rain initially reduced the match to 14 overs per side, Australia won the delayed toss and bowled first.

England reached 25-0 before heavy rain forced the players off the field.

Danni Wyatt was unbeaten on 14 off 12 balls, with Tammy Beaumont six not out off 14 deliveries.

The third and final T20 also takes place in Adelaide and is set to start at 03:10 GMT on Sunday.
