Match abandoned in Hyderabad as India, Australia share T20 series

Posted October 14, 2017

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.

Groundstaff worked frantically to try and fix damaged done at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium following heavy rain in the last fortnight. The match scheduled to begin at 7 pm is likely to be threatened by possible light to moderate showers as per weather forecasts. While some cricket fans feared that rains may play spoilsport in today's match, others bombarded Team India with techniques to win the series.

Unfortunately, though, we have bad news for you. No official confirmation yet about the game.

The final Twenty20 global between India and Australia was today called off without a ball being bowled here.As a result of the abandonment, the three-match T20 series ended tied 1-1.

Australia squad: David Warner (c), Jason Behrendorff, Dan Christian, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Glenn Maxwell, Tim Paine, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa. Team India will be focusing on continuing their back to back series winning streak and they will look to seize this opportunity in Hyderabad.

On the bowling front, skipper Virat Kohli might also fancy playing veteran pacer Ashish Nehra, who will retire from worldwide cricket on November 1 in a T20I against New Zealand in Delhi. Wrist-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are also expected to run havoc on the strong batting lineup.
