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.

Should the NZ selectors pick Jesse Ryder if he's available?

Yep, he's in great form and deserves a crack.

As long as he promises to stay out of trouble.

Only if there's an injury crisis.

No way, Jose. He's had his fair share of chances.
