India's chances of qualifying for the Champions Trophy semi-final suffered a fatal blow after their crucial Group A match against Australia was called off due to heavy rains at the SuperSport Park in Centurian on Monday.

Heavy rains played spoilsport in a must-win game for India. It all now boils down to Wednesday, where Australia should lose to Pakistan and India beat West Indies. A win for Australia would knockout India.

Australia were 234 for four in 42.3 overs when the match was called off as it began to rain heavily accompanied by lightning.
