5th Over
Sadly the match has been abandoned. Not great news, but what can you do about the rain? So the series is still 2-1 in Australia's favour. Make sure you join us for the 5th ODI on Saturday.
The inspection is underway, news on it shortly
Some further news, an inspection due for about 10 minutes time, 8.35pm Indian time
So we are getting closer and closer to crunch time. If play hasn't re-started by around 2.45 am AEST then we won't be able to get the overs in.
The latest news is there is a slight improvement, the rain is not so heavy and it is only drizzling. No word on a restart as we now approach a delay of 2 hours.
So the rain continues, no good news from the ground at this stage. Play has been off for 75 minutes.
Stats man Mohandas Menon tweets @mohanstatsman "It's raining steadily at the JSCA Stadium, Ranchi. Need to start by around 9.15 pm for India to play atleast 20 overs."
Commentator Alan Wilkins has been good enough to tweet - @alanwilkins22 "Not looking good here at Ranchi. Raining heavily"
So we're up to a 30 minute delay now........still no word at this stage about a re-start
No word from the ground, but we have lost 20 minutes of play so far, which suggest we may start losing a few overs from here on if the delay continues
So that's darn disappointing, hopefully it is only a passing shower. More news shortly.....
Some light rain starts to fall which is rather annoying. Off come the players
