Australia retain Rosebowl with decider abandoned

5:58 pm on 12 February 2009

Continual rain has seen the fifth and deciding women's cricket one dayer between New Zealand and Australia in Wellington, abandoned without a ball being bowled.

The Rosebowl series was level at two all going into today's game and the abandonment of the match means Australia, the current holders, retain the trophy.
