End of Over 16 (1 run)

England: 59-3 (rr 3.69)

15.1
One Run
Voges to Morgan. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, to backward point for 1 run, fielded by McKay. The rain has got heavier and the players have trooped off. Full covers have come out. This could be a lengthy delay. 7pm The scene is still bleak and the umpires will have a look at 7:15pm to see if any play will be possible. Sadly the rain hasn't relented and there will be no further play. Australia take a 1-0 series lead to Cardiff on Saturday.
