A RUMBUSTIOUS 75 by Greg Ritchie was of no avail to Australia in Hyderabad in the third One-Day International against India.

Rain caused the match to be abandoned within 11 overs of the start of India's reply to the Australian total of 242 for six.

The sides are level in the series of six matches, which will be completed after the second Test, which starts in Delhi on Friday

India today were without Sunil Gavaskar, who had a stiff knee, and they played an extra bowler in off-spinner Gopal Sharma. They also revised their pace attack, omitting Chetan Sharma and Binny and replacing them with the veteran Madan Lal and newcomer Rudra Pratap Singh.

Sound start

After a sound start Australia were reduced to 126 for four, but Ritchie, with assistance of Matthews and Waugh, recued them.

India lost an early wicket when Reid uprooted the off-stump of Srikkant, but Lamba and Azharuddin, were still at the crease when play was called off.

Police used metal-tipped bamboo staves to prevent unruly crowds from gate-crashing into the match.
