The third and final Twenty20 International (T20I) match between India and Australia was called off due to the poor condition of the outfield of the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Friday.

The three-match series was tied at 1-1. The first match was won by India by nine wickets via (D/L method) and second match was won by Australia by eight wickets.

"Match abandoned. A sodden outfield the culprit, with the series finishing as a 1-1 tie. #INDvAUS," Cricket Australia said in a tweet.

The tie brought respite to the Australian side that has had a tour to forget in the sub-continent. They lost the Test series earlier in the year 2-1 before being trounced in the ODI series 4-1.

India will now shift their focus to Australia's neighbours New Zealand while Australia will prepare for the arrival of the English for this year's Ashes.
