The final one-day international between India and Australia was abandoned without a ball bowled in Margao, giving the home team a 1-0 series victory.

It completed a wretched tour for the Australians ahead of the Ashes starting on 25 November, as they also lost the two-match Test series 2-0.

Steady rain over the past few days left the outfield waterlogged in Goa's second largest town.

The first match was also abandoned and India won the second by five wickets.

In addition to the dismal weather the one-day series was also blighted by the absence of key figures.

Star players on both sides chose to miss the series, Sachin Tendulkar for India and Australia captain Ricky Ponting.

Next up for India is the visit of New Zealand for three Tests and a five-match ODI series, starting next month.

Australia, still currently the number one ranked one-day side, begin their quest to rise up the Test rankings and regain the Ashes in the first Test against England at Brisbane.
