It promised to be a thrilling encounter between India and Australia in MS Dhoni's home town of Ranchi but rain made sure that no result was possible. (BCCI image)
Shami Ahmed, in the side in place of Ishant Sharma, was excellent with the ball, picking the wickets of Aaron Finch, Phil Hughes and Shane Watson. (BCCI image)
He ended with career-best figures of 3/42 in his 8 overs. (BCCI image)
But George Bailey was the star once again, top-scoring for Australia with 98. Surely he deserves an Ashes call-up! (BCCI image)
Glenn Maxwell was sensational too, notching a career-best 92 and was involved in a record 136-ball 153-run stand with his skipper. (BCCI image)
The Indians dropped five catches in the field, including Bailey for a duck, as Australia posted 295/8 in their 50 overs. (BCCI image)
However, the rain Gods arrived with India at 27/0 to end what would have been a thrilling chase in Ranchi. (BCCI image)
