Hyderabad: After the three-match Twenty20 series between India and Australia being set up beautifully for a thrilling showdown here on Friday, the wet outfield at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium played spoilsport as the third T20 was called off.

While Virat Kohli’s India won the first T20 in Ranchi - MS Dhoni's hometown, David Warner-led Australia levelled the series by clinching the second T20 in Guwahati.

While the hosts were looking to up their game and win the series in Hyderabad, the visitors were targeting to upset India at Warner’s Indian Premier League side Sunrisers Hyderabad homeground.

While the weather forecast indicated rain, with a possibility of thunderstorm, raingods were kind as rain stayed away from the match.

 

There were multiple ground inspections from the match officials – one at 7 p.m. and the second at 7.45 p.m. as the groundstaff continued to work on the outfield.

However, around 30,000 at the venue and millions of cricket fans were robbed a chance to witness the final showdown.

 

Some of such cricket fans took to Twitter to slam the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for poor scheduling.
