10pm Play abandoned. I'm afraid there's very bad news from Kuala Lumpur. Incessant rain has washed out any chance of play and the points will be shared two apiece between India and Australia. India were floundering at 35 for 5, chasing 170 in 29 overs, when rain intervened for the final time and they're lucky to salvage any points at all from this game.

As it stands, Australia are leading the table with seven points. West Indies have five because they gained a bonus point in their win against India who are bottom with the two points gained out of today's wash out.

It's been a pleasure bringing you today's game. Please do join us on Monday when Australia take on West Indies. That match starts at 12pm IST. That's about it from me today, cheers!

9.30pm And it's raining again. The players have gone off. India won't mind this really because they've been blown out of the match by a fiery spell of left-arm fast bowling. Australia on the other hand will be very disappointed, at 35 for 5 chasing 170 in 29 overs, they have India by the proverbial scruff off the neck.

Johnson in two overs after lunch has virtually ended India's chase. He's taken four in the space of twelve balls and that needless run-out of Sehwag has worsened the situtation.

Clark to Sehwag, 2 runs, OUT

a disastrous mix up and Sehwag is run-out. He creamed that through covers but the ball pulled up in the soggy outfield. The batsmen ran two and Sehwag went for the third. Tendulkar initially set off but then decided against it. However, Sehwag kept coming and was left stranded mid-pitch when the throw came in from the deep to the wicketkeeper
