TORRENTIAL rain ended Australia's hopes of pressing home the advantage won by the fast bowling of Karl Rackemann and the leg-spin of Tom Hogan in the second one-day cricket international against India in Trivandrum today.

The match was abandoned after only 7.4 overs of the Australian innings when the tourists were 29 for one in reply to India's 175 all out. The last Indian wicket fell to the final ball of their 37 overs.

The 50-over match was first reduced to 37 overs after a late start and a further drizzle left Australia to score 146 in 32 overs to win the match at the start of their innings.

Australia's captain, Kim Hughes, put India in despite being without Rodney Hogg whose place went to Steve Smith. India kept the team beaten by 48 runs last Friday in the opening game of the series of five one-day matches.

Rackemann wrecked the early batting, taking three for seven, including both openers, in his eight overs. Hogan then destroved the Indian middle-order.

Hogan, who took up the attack after Rackemann's spell, offered India no respite, attacking the stumps with impressive accuracy for a wrist-spinner.

Only Vengsarkar defied the attack for any length of time. His innings of 78 was notable for some clean, straight hitting which brought him three sixes and seven fours.

Australia's reply was sedate, with both Wood and Kepler Wessels content to see off India's most effective bowler, Kapil Dev. But Dev struck in the seventh over, getting Wessels leg before playing back.
