Adjust Comment Print

Pitch was reportedly fine and a game could have been underway but the outfield was too soft and wet to be played on. The third T20 match will be a decider as India and Australia are tied at 1-1.

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.

The wet outfield at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium forced the match to be called off. Rain can hit in anytime, groundstaff looks prepared for it.

Unfortunately, though, we have bad news for you. The match scheduled to begin at 7 pm is likely to be threatened by possible light to moderate showers as per weather forecasts. No official confirmation yet about the game.
