Heavy overnight rain made the ground unfit for the third and the final one-dayer between India and Australia. The umpires after their final inspection of the ground decided to call off play. India clinched the three-match series 1-0.


On-field umpires Billy Bowden and Amish Saheba, accompanied by ICC match referee Chris Broad, had an inspection of the entire Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium ground, including the bowlers' run-up and the wet areas on the outfield at 12:15 pm and by 1 pm they decided that the ground condition was not fit for the match.


India were 1-0 up going into the deciding clash after winning the second match at Visakhapatnam on October 20 by five wickets. The series opener in Kochi was washed out too.
