Rain ruined Pakistan's second warm-up game against Australia at Edgbaston on Monday as the match was called off only after 10.2 over due to incessant rain.

Australia, who defeated Sri Lanka in their first warm-up, had advanced to 57-1 in the 11th over when the match came to a premature conclusion at Edgbaston.

After winning the toss, Australia started brightly as Aaron Finch and David Warner raced to 30 before Mohammad Amir broke through. The left-armer, who was rested from the Bangladesh game on Saturday, had Warner caught behind by skipper Sarfraz Ahmed for 11.

Finch, however, looked in good touch by stroking seven boundaries in an enterprising innings of 36 from as many deliveries.

Steve Smith, the Australian captain, had barely settled in when the weather intervened. He made eight off 17 balls.
