Australia

Day two of the tour match between Australia A and England in Hobart was abandoned without a ball bowled as rain refused to let up over the Blundstone Arena.

Day two of the tour match between Australia A and England in Hobart was abandoned without a ball bowled as rain refused to let up over the Blundstone Arena.

England thus remained on 318 for none, with Alastair Cook and Michael Carberry unbeaten on 154 and 153 respectively, after they took the Aussie A bowlers to task on the opening day.

At one stage, in the afternoon, it looked as though there might be some play as the covers came off and the umpires inspected the pitch, but the drizzle soon resumed and stumps were called.
