Australia+vs.+New+Zealand+Champions+Trophy+match+abandoned.

Rain provided further frustration for Australia, on a day when they dropped David Warner for a bar-room attack on England's Joe Root, as their Champions Trophy match against New Zealand ended in a no result yesterday.

Yesterday's wash-out at Edgbaston left defending champions Australia facing a tough battle to qualify for the semi-finals.

New Zealand, chasing 244 to win, were on 51 for 2 off 15 overs when rain stopped play in the Group A clash.

Under the Duckworth/Lewis system for rain-affected matches, a minimum of 20 overs had to be bowled in the second innings for either side to win this fixture.

The first no result of the tournament saw both sides take a point apiece.
