Twenty20 series decider abandoned due to wet outfield in Hyderabad

Even before the match, there were speculations of rain and thunderstorm.

With this result, the three-match series was shared 1-1. Despite eastern Hyderabad remaining dry during the match, it was the first to be called off.

The three-match Twenty20 worldwide series between India and Australia ended 1-1 after the final match was abandoned without a ball being bowled, due to a wet outfield in Hyderabad on Friday. If there is no play then both the captains - Virat Kohli from the Indian side and David Warner, who is captaining the Australian side after regular skipper Steve Smith left for home after a shoulder injury - would be sharing the trophy.

Update: The third T20I between India and Australia has been called off due to wet outfield. They had the first inspection at 7 pm and followed it up with another at 7.45pm.

The city has been receiving good rainfall nearly on a daily basis for about a week, throwing normal life out of gear. But ground inspections by the match referee Richie Richardson and the umpires revealed that the outfield was not conducive for play.
