Australia were 21 for one in 7.1 overs when play was interrupted at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Pacer Mohammed Siraj sent back the returning David Warner (5) to give India their first breakthrough before the heavens opened up. Debutant Will Pucovski and Marnus Labuschagne were batting on 14 and 2 respectively.

The players ran off the field as a shower arrived from nowhere, forcing the groundsmen to cover the pitch as well as the square as shower got a bit heavier.
