Series decider abandoned in Hyderabad

Aussies look to end India tour on a high

Metrological department in its statement said, "The forecast is possibility of thunderstorm accompanied with rain today and a light to moderate rain tomorrow".

It took close to 90 minutes of deliberating before the match was finally abandoned, leaving the series deadlocked.

IST: No toss yet, Umpires to inspect pitch at 19.45 IST.

The Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, the venue for the deciding T20I between India and Australia, was expecting cracker of a contest on Friday.

Hello everyone and welcome to live coverage of the 3rd T20 between India and Australia. Though there were no showers in and around Uppal stadium, the wet outfield, caused due to overnight showers, proved to be a dampener.

The city has been receiving good rainfall nearly on a daily basis for about a week, throwing normal life out of gear. A day before, pedestal fans were used on the same spots to dry those patches in time. The decision to abandon the match - after two inspections at 7.00 pm and 7.45 pm - in the three-match T20I series also meant the series ended in a one-all draw.

Having won the first T20 quite comfortably against the Aussies, completing a nine-wicket win, the visitors bounced back in the second match to clinch a convincing ewight-wicket win, thanks to an all-round performance. The Hyderabad crowd was all excited and had countered rain to come see their favourite players and their IPL captain David Warner play but they will have to go home without any cricket action as rain has done extra damage on the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium outfield.

India: Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ashish Nehra, Dinesh Karthik, KL Rahul and Axar Patel.
