The third and final one-day international between England and West Indies was abandoned due to rain at Headingley.

The toss was scheduled to take place at 10.15am ahead of a 10.45am start, but the covers were firmly in place throughout the early morning.

And with rain continuing to fall, and the forecast offering little encouragement, prospects for any play were not encouraging, and the umpires abandoned the game after lunch.

England won the series 2-0 after wins by 114 runs, under the D/L method, at Southampton last weekend and Tuesday's eight-wicket success at The Oval.

England were set to rest Stuart Broad, Tim Bresnan and Graeme Swann from Friday's match, with Stuart Meaker, Chris Woakes and James Tredwell missing out on their chance in the spotlight.

West Indies conclude their tour with a Twenty20 international at Trent Bridge on Sunday.

England then face Australia in a five-match one-day series starting at Lord's on 29 June.
