However, Cyclone Marcia and the non-stop rain that followed in Brisbane denied the fit-again Aussie captain the chance to play for the first time since December.
The match was abandoned without a ball being bowled at 6.42am GMT, with each side collecting a point which leaves them level near the top of Pool A.
"Our thoughts are with people who have been adversely affected. As the forecast for Brisbane has improved somewhat, there is a chance at this stage that play can go ahead today, perhaps with reduced overs.
"While that chance exists, match officials will try to give the teams the chance to compete for maximum points as there are no reserve days during the pool stage of the tournament. Once the situation becomes clear later in the day, ticket holders will be advised about any potential refunds."
