The first one-day international between England and Australia has been abandoned without a ball being bowled because of rain at Headingley on Friday.

Umpires Aleem Dar and Richard Illingworth called off the match at 1.35 pm (local time), deciding it was too wet to play at any point in the day.

The teams will have to wait until Sunday to begin the series, although a gloomy weather report for the match in Manchester may further frustrate Michael Clarke’s and Eoin Morgan’s squads.
