ENGLAND and India will go head-to-head for a place in the one-day international tri-series final after last night's game between Australia and India in Sydney was washed out.

Australia has already qualified for the final and England will join it if it can beat India in Perth on Friday.

Defeat for Eoin Morgan's men will mean the Indians will qualify.

In yesterday's clash, returning skipper George Bailey won the toss and put the Indians in.

With rain around, the Indians tried to get a quick start and were 2-69 when the second rain break came.

Ajinkya Rahane was not out on 28 when play was ended with 16 overs bowled.

Players went off just before 5pm (AEDT) and did not return as steady drizzle forced the umpires to call it a day three hours later.
