Due to their match against Australia being washed out, India still have a chance of reaching the final of the ongoing ODI tri-series.

Australia captain George Bailey would have been delighted with his decision to bowl first after India opener Shikhar Dhawan was caught by Aaron Finch at first slip off the bowling of Mitchell Starc for eight runs.

Ambati Rayudu made 23 runs before he was brilliantly caught by David Warner at cover off the bowling of Mitchell Marsh.

Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli amassed an unbeaten seven-run partnership before the heavens parted.

With the rain refusing to relent, the umpires had no choice but to call the match off.

Both Australia and India were awarded two points due to the match being abandoned.
