Sydney: Rain interrupted fifth game of the Tri series between India and Australia has been called off Mondya. Only 16 overs were bowled when play had to be stopped.

The umpires inspected the conditions and decided to call it off.

Australia and India will take two points each from this game. Australia were already through to the final, and India are now trailing England by three points. If England beat India in Perth, they are through. If India beat England, India are through. If points are shared, England are through. Simple.

Rain halted the ODI tri-series clash between India and Australia with the former 69 for two in 16 overs at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) here Monday.

Rain had earlier delayed the toss due to which the match had to be curtailed to 44 overs each.

Opener Ajinkya Rahane (28) and Virat Kohli (3) were the two unbeaten batsmen at the crease.

Shikhar Dhawan (8) and Ambati Rayudu (23) were the batsmen dismissed with Mitchell Starc and Mitchell Marsh amongst the wickets for Australia.

Earlier Australian captain George Bailey won the toss and sent India in to bat in the fifth One-Day International (ODI) of the tri-series at the Sydney Cricket Ground here Monday.

Game started late due to rain but again had to be stopped as it again started raining.

Since India has already played 15 overs, match could further be reduced to 20 ovesr a side if need be.
