Rain had the final word at the Royal Selangor Club in Kuala Lumpur, washing out the play-off for fifth place between arch rivals Australia and England. In a curtailed game - 24 overs a side - Kirk Pascoe's 55 led an impressive recovery for Australia after they were in a precarious position at 7 for 4.

England exploited the damp conditions after putting Australia in, with the new-ball bowlers - Steven Finn and James Harris - snaring four victims in just 4.1 overs. A wicket didn't fall for the next 12.2 overs, as David King provided support to Pascoe with a patient 45-ball 19.

Tom Westley, the offspinner, picked up two wickets in his five overs, but Pascoe ensured Australia played out their overs for a fighting total of 106 for 7. Pascoe kept the scoring-rate ticking along with five fours and a six in his 67-ball innings.

When the match was called off, England were at 47 for 2 off 10.5 overs, needing another 60 off 79 deliveries.
