Hyderabad T20I abandoned due to rain, series ends 1-1

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

However, rain might play spoilsport as the forecast is not promising with the met department predicting thundershowers during the match hours.

It took close to 90 minutes of deliberating before the match was finally abandoned, leaving the series deadlocked. The match has been called off with the umpires deeming the damp ground beyond fix in time for a five-overs-a-side match.

This is the second time the Men in Blue shared a T20 series with Australia.

Earlier, the match referee Richie Richardson was seen having inspection in the company of the two umpires - the outfield especially the wet patches near the boundary. Next inspection will take place at 7: 45 pm.

The city has been receiving good rainfall nearly on a daily basis for about a week, throwing normal life out of gear. However, Curator YL Chandrasekhar said the recent rain has not affected the wicket.




India were the far better side in the ODIs, winning the five-match series 4-1; but the T20Is has been a mixed bag so far.

After the match was delayed, the ground at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium was inspected three times but despite all efforts from the groudstaff play was not possible.

India won the rain-hit first T20I after overcoming Australia by nine-wickets in Ranchi.

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

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Ashish Nehra, Lokesh Rahul, Axar Patel.
