India vs Australia

India v Australia ODI series: Fifth match of the series rained off in Cuttack

The fifth ODI between India and Australia was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to a waterlogged pitch in Cuttack.

Wet weather and a soggy outfield made play impossible on Saturday, meaning Australia lead the five-match series 2-1 with just two matches remaining.

After monsoons in the region, play was already deemed unlikely on Friday, but Cricket Australia confirmed the game's cancellation on the morning of the match.

The sixth ODI between the sides will take place in Nagpur on October 30.
