Bad weather, in the form of a cyclone over the Arabian Sea near Mumbai and continuous heavy rains in the city over the past 24 hours, washed out the seventh and final ODI between India and Australia on Wednesday.
With this, Australia win the series 4-2 and have the double bonus of Shane Watson declared Man of the Series.
That the match would be called off was clear in the morning, which broke grey and wet; though the rain abated, and by afternoon had become an occasional drizzle, it had done enough to turn the DY Patil Stadium into a pool of water. The match was officially called off at 5 p.m.
Two other top-level matches in the city were also affected; the first day's play of Sri Lanka's tour game against the Board President's XI was washed out and the Ranji game between Mumbai and Orissa is yet to see a ball being bowled into the second day.
