New Zealand vs Australia live commentary

So a disappointing end to a fascinating contest as I say goodbye to you all who stay tuned for a rain marred game in Birmingham. Stay tuned for the extensive coverage of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 and for anything related to cricket. That's it from us for the Trans-Tasmanian derby as it ends with no result. Goodnight folks!
Australia would be feeling lucky as they were reeling at 53/3 when the game was stoppee for the third time. Just like in 2013, the game between Australia and New Zealand is abandoned. It was looking like a close encounter before rain played spoilsport. This venue has rain forecasted for all of its matches which means that the India vs Pakistan is also under a huge doubt.
Big News - The match is abandoned. Sadly, the rains get the better of both the sides as points will be shared in this crucial league game.
UPDATE: The rain is getting heavier by the minute as the conditions are not looking encouraging.
If the rain stops and we do have a restart by 11.15 PM IST, the match will be of 20 overs and the target for Australia will be a massive 174.
But as soon as the wicket falls, the covers are back as we stop again for a rain induced break.
Henriques looks in good touch as he pulls Milne for a supremely timed four. But the pacer is bowling well to make it a good contest between bat and ball. The final ball turns it in Milne's favour as Henriques is caught and bowled by the bowler. Brilliant stuff by the bowler!
