Final T20 called off

KOLKATA: The final Twenty20 match between India and South Africa at the Eden Gardens was abandoned due to a wet outfield on Thursday without a ball being bowled. Heavy afternoon showers caused damage to the outfield before the scheduled start of play and despite a lengthy dry spell, conditions did not improve enough for the match to proceed. The match officials made three inspections before deciding no play was possible. South Africa had already bagged the series with victories in the first two matches. The teams will next play five one-day internationals before a four-Test series starts next month.
