Final T20 called off over wet outfield

IND v AUS T20 Rains in Hyderabad to disrupt final installment

Rain may play spoilsport in the match with weather forecast indicating possibility of light to moderate rain in Hyderabad. The third T20 match will be a decider as India and Australia are tied at 1-1.

The Match has been called off!

And thus, the visitors would be looking to end their Tour on a high when the two sides meet in the third and final T20I match at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium to be played today. The pitch inspection has been further delayed from 7:00 Pm to 7:45 Pm IST.

Hello everyone and welcome to live coverage of the 3rd T20 between India and Australia.

The reason was a wet outfield.

Indian captain Virat Kohli and his Australian counterpart David Warner, umpires and match officials decided that no play could be possible because of a soft outfield. The city has been consistently receiving rains through the week, throwing normal life out of gear.

No. 4 Penn State (6-0) eventually ran away from host Northwestern (2-3) with three majors in the second half of a 31-7 victory. Eddy Pineiro missed the first extra point of his career in the third quarter and never got a chance to atone for it.

However, the outfield was affected a bit and some fans were being used to dry the affected area.

India claimed the opener comfortably but Australia fought back in the first ever worldwide match in Guwahati but the series was denied the decider it richly deserved.

Later, the match officials including the match referee, the umpires went around the ground and took the final call because the ground was not fit to play as per worldwide standards.

Left-arm speedster Jason Behrendorff had wiped away India's top-four in Guwahati as the hosts were bundled out for 118 in the second match of the T20I series.

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