India, Australia third T20I match called off; Series ends at 1-1

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

A solid week of rain had left the outfield sodden an unsuitable for play with most at the ground resigned to the match being abandoned nearly as soon as they arrived. Despite eastern Hyderabad remaining dry during the match, it was the first to be called off. The pitch inspection has been further delayed from 7:00 Pm to 7:45 Pm IST.

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. Though there were no showers in and around Uppal stadium, the wet outfield, caused due to overnight showers, proved to be a dampener. Though it did not rain in this part of the city since Friday morning, Hyderabad has been consistently pounded by rain in the last couple of weeks.

Australia, however, will be striving to win the decider to take the T20 trophy home as they have already lost the One-Day International (ODI) series 1-4. Meanwhile, India put up a rather poor performance in the Guwahati match with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma being dismissed by left-arm bowler Jason Behrendorff in the first over as Australia won the match by eight wickets. Arrangements have been made at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket stadium, the venue of the match, to ensure that the match is held without any problem.

The pitch at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium is usually good for batting and fans will be expecting a run feast after the low-scoring affair on a damp pitch in Guwahati.
