Rain delayed the scheduled 10:30am local time (0930GMT) start of the lone one-day international between Scotland and England in Aberdeen on Friday.

Persistent early morning rain saw the square at the Mannofield ground in north-east Scotland, where a sell-out crowd of 2,000 was expected, remain covered.

A minimum of 20 overs per side are required for a result to be declared.

This is England's first match since Peter Moores was re-appointed head coach and their first in any format since an embarrassing 45-run loss to the Netherlands at the World Twenty20 in Chittagong in March.

Scotland have qualified for next year's one-day international World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, where they will be in the same pool as cross-border rivals England.
