Final match rained out

UPDATED 01 March, 2013 6:14PM AEST | by Omnisport 1

The England Lions' tour of Australia will finish without a win, after their fifth and final unofficial ODI against Australia A was abandoned because of rain.

The final match was due to take place at the SCG on Friday, but heavy rain in the Sydney area meant no play was possible.

Umpires called play off shortly after the scheduled start time of 2pm, as light rain continued and the covers remained on.

The five-match series was won 4-0 by Australia A, with the England Lions unable to gain any victories during their tour.

The visitors also lost three matches to Victorian teams prior to the series to compound a woeful time in Australia for them.
