India, Australia share T20I honours after Hyderabad dampener

After the toss was initially delayed as the umpires inspected the condition of the outfield, the players went through their warm-up routines in preparation.

Groundstaff worked frantically to try and fix damaged done at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium following heavy rain in the last fortnight.

David Warner, who led the side after injured skipper Steve Smith returned to Australia after the one-day internationals, said he sympathised with the ground staff.

The 3-match series will now be shared 1-1 and the trophy as well so far.

O.J. Simpson released from prison after 9 years
He told officials that leading a group of men into a 2007 armed confrontation was an error in judgment he would not repeat. He was acquitted the following year in Los Angeles in what was dubbed the "trial of the century".

Marouane Fellaini suffers knee ligament damage
Marouane Fellaini was forced off after 29 minutes in Belgium's WCQ clash at Bosnia-Herzegovina with an apparent knee injury. And Michael Carrick also drove in for training in his silver range rover, after picking up an injury himself.

"They had 20 days of rain every day (leading up) and I think they did quite a good job to actually keep the square dry and prepare a pitch". Groundsmen could be seen frantically spreading sawdust on the wet patches on the outfield.

Heavy falls have soaked the city in recent days, with the tail end of monsoon season digging in. In the five-match ODI series played before the T20I matches, India won 4-1 against Australia. Meanwhile, India put up a rather poor performance in the Guwahati match with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma being dismissed by left-arm bowler Jason Behrendorff in the first over as Australia won the match by eight wickets. The match has been called off with the umpires deeming the damp ground beyond fix in time for a five-overs-a-side match.

The three-match T20 series was marred with rains. As a result, play was called off at approximately 8.30 pm and the series ended with a 1-1 scoreline. Ashish Nehra on Thursday had announced that he would be retiring from all formats of the game after the first T20 between India and New Zealand at Feroz Shah Kotla, his home ground, on November 1.
