On the other hand, Indian bowlers started well but could not capitalize it for longer time. On other than B kummer bowled well. Therefore it was easy chasing for the team Australia. 
It was dominating performance by the Australian batsman and won the match by 8 wickets. That helps team Australia to get back to the series. At the end of the series result was 1-1.
That is it from the newest venue in India to taste the spice of T20 cricket. It did not go in favour of the team India. But the attendance of almost 39,000 people ensured the decibel levels were right up there and the cricketing carnival was celebrated with utmost pomp. The jamboree now moves to Hyderabad with the series deadlocked at 1-1. Home ground for the players likes of Warner, Henriques, Bhuvi and Dhawan. That would be fun.
Supporters were eagerly waiting to enjoy the match between two giants at Venue: Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad but match was abandon due to heavy rain. Not a single ball was dropped at the ground. It seems almighty don’t want to named the series to a particular team.
20:20 Local Time: News - The match is called off. Oh dear, all the excitement that was building up for the supposed decider has evaporated. But what hasn't evaporated is the water from the outfield - the global warming floods, that we witnessed a couple of days ago has claimed another casualty, a game of cricket, a series at stake.
 
Indian army was waiting to celebrate another series against Australian but fail to do so because of bad weather condition.
Above all it was an exciting series of T20 cricket. After the poor performance at the ODI by the Australians, It was really though for them to get back to the right rhythm of wining the match. Australian teams really did well and end the series at 1-1. At least Australian team get some positive feel to get back to the home.
Above all it was another fabulous victory over Australian By blue teams.
