Coming into this fourth Test, the day 5 morning began with similar dark clouds as seen throughout Sunday. Right at the supposed start of play, rain arrived to prevent any possibility of cricket happening at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Hence, the match was called off at 2.30 pm local time, with no possibility of further play.
With India already having the 2-1 lead, they retained the trophy successfully. Now, they will head into the 3-match ODI series before leaving back home. After that, they will be locking horns against Kiwis.
It would be interesting to see how things would pan out for the Indian side in the upcoming limited overs series. After the conclusion of Kiwis series, India will host Australians in the limited overs format.
