Well there isn't much to say here, except that it was pretty disappointing. India put up an incredible performance on the field today and restricted Australia to 132/7. It would've been awesome to see the men in blue bat and try to level the series - it seemed like an easy one. The rain gods had other ideas though, and the weather kept changing to the point where it would be pointless to carry on.

That's it folks! This game is over. It has began raining for the umpteenth time and the match has been called off.

Well, well, well...We might have a match after all, albeit, a toned down five over inning. Truly desi. Truly gully cricket.
