Rain thwarted a potential cliffhanger conclusion to the second women's one-day cricket international between Australia and a New Zealand Emerging Players side in Sydney today.

Chasing 162 for victory - and an unassailable 2-0 series lead - Australia's innings was finally curtailed at 84 for three, 10 balls before a result could have been determined under the Duckworth-Lewis method.

Australia needed 63 from 76 balls and were just a touch under the required run-rate thanks to Sarah Coyte's unbeaten boundary-studded 37 from 35 deliveries.

New Zealand, thrashed by six wickets in the series opener, would be content with a draw rather than risk succumbing to the vagaries of Duckworth-Lewis after producing a much-improved performance.
