 India vs. Australia, 4th ODI: Scorecard, Recap and More from Ranchi

The fourth match of the series between India and Australia ended in an abandonment at Ranchi after the evening rain set in and refused to lift in time to force a result.

There had been a brief shower in Australia's innings but having been put in to bat, they managed 295 for eight wickets in their 50 overs.

It was a decent effort, which owed everything to the combination of George Bailey and Glenn Maxwell. Both fell agonisingly short of well-deserved centuries, with Bailey top-edging Vinay Kumar when on 98 and the same bowler trapping Maxwell lbw on 92.

Their partnership had been worth 153 runs and rescued the team from a problematic position of 71-4.

Mohammed Shami, who took the first three wickets, was the pick of the India bowlers, especially early on, and once Bailey and Maxwell had been dislodged, there was not enough Australia batting to kick on.

It did not matter, however—India had got to 27 without loss after 4.1 overs of their reply when the rain returned and it never let up.

It means that the series is poised at 2-1 in Australia's favour with a further three matches to play.

Here is the scorecard, as given by the BBC.
