India vs Victoria: Report of 3rd and final day

Third day of India vs Victoria warm-up match has been abandoned due to heavy rain. Today no one team could come in the field to play. A single delivery had not been bowled in the third and final day. So, match ended with the result of draw.

Tourist India team could play only 48 overs where they scored 133 for 4 with Rahul Dravid on 38 and Yuvraj Singh on 6. Victorian fast bowler Allan Wise got all of the wickets.

First day of the three day warm-up match was played only two-and-a-half hours before torrential rain saturated the ground where 38 overs had been bowled. Indian team could manage only 110 for 3 in their first day. Only 10 overs were possible to be bowled in second day.

Allan Wise, Victorian left-arm fast bowler, was the most successive bowler claimed all the top four wickets. Wasim Jaffer was his first victim. Then he took the wicket one by one. He got 4 for 37 at an average of 2.46. Indian left-arm batsman Sourav Ganguly who scored 59 runs was the highest run holder in Indian team. Indian players used much of the downtime to train at the MCG indoor nets.

However, first test of the four-match Test series will start from 26 December this month between India and Australia. Fans of both teams are eagerly waiting to see the match except any natural climate. Can we hope so?
