Australia’s World Cup Pool A match against Bangladesh in Brisbane was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Heavy rain overnight and throughout the day prevented any play at the Gabba.
Both sides took one point from the game and are level on three points in the group, three behind leaders New Zealand.
It is only the second World Cup match to be washed out completely, after Sri Lanka against West Indies at The Oval in 1979.
The weather prevented captain Michael Clarke from making his return from a hamstring injury, the Australia captain having missed the co-hosts’111-run win over England on the first day of the tournament.
Clarke has not played a competitive international since having surgery in December, but made 64 in the World Cup warm-up win over the United Arab Emirates.
Bangladesh, who beat Afghanistan in their World Cup opener, face Sri Lanka in Melbourne on Thursday, while Australia play unbeaten New Zealand in Auckland on Saturday.
