India won the rain-hit T20 opener by nine wickets in Ranchi before the visitors made a remarkable comeback with their eight-wicket win in what turned out to be the final game.
The city has been receiving good rainfall nearly on a daily basis for about a week, throwing normal life out of gear. The Hyderabad crowd was all excited and had countered rain to come see their favourite players and their IPL captain David Warner play but they will have to go home without any cricket action as rain has done extra damage on the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium outfield. However, Curator YL Chandrasekhar said the recent rain has not affected the wicket. So much so that on the eve of the match, a few pedestal fans, propped over chairs, were used to dry out the soggy areas.
As a result of the abandonment, the three-match T20 series finished in a tie with both teams winning one match each.
