Twenty20 series decider abandoned due to wet outfield in Hyderabad

With this result, the three-match series was shared 1-1. The frustration was palpable around the stadium as the spectators threw bottles on to the ground the moment the giant screens flashed "Match called off" around 8.23 pm. India and Australia share the trophy.

Ironically, it did not rain and there was only a drizzle for a while just after the second inspection, forcing the ground staff to bring on the covers.

"The outfield was quite unsafe and that's why they made the call".

Ultimately they headed home disappointed, with the outfield deemed unsafe for play, to the obvious disappointment of India captain Virat Kohli. Though there were no showers in and around Uppal stadium, the wet outfield, caused due to overnight showers, proved to be a dampener.

India won the rain-hit first T20I after overcoming Australia by nine-wickets in Ranchi. A Meteorological official was quoted in a PTI report saying, "The forecast is possibility of thunderstorm accompanied with rain today (Thursday) and a light to moderate rain tomorrow".

The city has been receiving good rainfall nearly on a daily basis for about a week, throwing normal life out of gear.

The umpires decided the outfield at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium was unfit for play within an hour of the scheduled start of play, much to the disappointment of the 30,000-strong crowd. However, Curator YL Chandrasekhar said the recent rain has not affected the wicket. According to sources, pedestal fans had been used on the eve of the match to dry the outfield.

For the first time in this limited-overs tour, Australia are on an even footing with India, having bounced back to level the three-match T20I series at 1-1 after losing the ODI series 1-4.

It was a painful wait for the spectators who turned up for the first ever T20 global at the venue.
