India vs Australia 3rd T20: Match abandoned as teams share T20 trophy

Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli made the rain-revised chase look easy

The final and series decider Twenty20 worldwide between India and Australia was abandoned due to sodden outfield without a ball being bowled at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium, Hyderabad.

The Match has been called off! Though there were no showers in and around Uppal stadium, the wet outfield, caused due to overnight showers, proved to be a dampener. Groundsmen could be seen frantically spreading sawdust on the wet patches on the outfield. The met department has forecasted thundershowers during the match hours. 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. 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.

India won the rain-curtailed first T20I in Ranchi by nine wickets by DLS method, while Australia bounced back to canter to an eight-wicket win in the second match in Guwahati.

However, the outfield was affected a bit with a few fans helping to dry out the affected area. It was indeed a much pumped-up crowd at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad.

Earlier, India won the five-match one-day worldwide series 4-1.

The action has shifted to the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad today for the series-deciding clash.

India: Virat Kohli (c), 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.
