Last time a match was called off in India due to wet outfield was at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata in 2015 when India where supposed to play South Africa.

The third and final Twenty20 global between India and Australia at Hyderabad was abandoned due to wet outfield. Visitors came back strongly in the second T20I and won the match convincingly by 8 wickets at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati.

Not so good news for cricket fans who have been waiting for this match, as the toss has been delayed. The decision to abandon the match - after two inspections at 7.00 pm and 7.45 pm - in the three-match T20I series also meant the series ended in a one-all draw.

Ultimately they headed home disappointed, with the outfield deemed unsafe for play, to the obvious disappointment of India captain Virat Kohli.

In game two in Guwahati, the tourists recorded their second victory on the month-long tour as they thrashed India by eight wickets.


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

Barring injury, Warner is the only member of the T20 squad who is certain to be picked for the first Test against England in Brisbane on November 23 as focus turns to the Ashes.

All eyes will, however, be on the weather, as there is forecast of rain later in the night.

Australia: David Warner (capt), Jason Behrendorff, Marcus Stoinis, Dan Christian, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Glenn Maxwell, Tim Paine (wk), Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Andrew Tye.

The hosts will heavily rely on their hard-hitting batsmen Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Hardik Pandya.
