Third T20 between India and Australia called off

Aussies look to end India tour on a high

Even before the match, there were speculations of rain and thunderstorm. The third T20 match will be a decider as India and Australia are tied at 1-1. The frustration was palpable around the stadium as the spectators threw bottles on to the ground the moment the giant screens flashed "Match called off" around 8.23 pm.

Then, Richardson was seen speaking to the two captains Virat Kohli and David Warner.

This is the second time the Men in Blue shared a T20 series with Australia. The match scheduled to begin at 7 pm is likely to be threatened by possible light to moderate showers as per weather forecasts. The start has been delayed due to wet outfield.

India won the rain-truncated first match in Ranchi by nine wickets, while Australia squared the series with a eight-wicket victory in Guwahati on Tuesday. 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. It rained for an hour in the evening on Thursday, but curator YL Chandrasekhar had said they are confident of getting the field ready.

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

However, the outfield was affected a bit with a few fans helping to dry out the affected area.

The series-deciding T20I match was called off after match officials conducted multiple inspections and ruled that the pitch was not suitable for play. Henriques and Christian have played a lot of Indian Premier League (IPL) matches at this venue.
