MARGAO, India (Reuters) - The third and final one-dayer between India and Australia Sunday was called off after steady rain over the past two days waterlogged the outfield, handing the hosts a 1-0 series win.

Australia, the number one ranked ODI side in the world, ended their disappointing tour of India losing both the test and one-day series. India swept the test series 2-0.

The series had lost some sheen with top cricketers from both teams, including Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting, giving it a miss.

The first match in Kochi last Sunday was also called off due to rain. India’s five-wicket win Wednesday decided the outcome of the series.

India next host New Zealand for a three test and five match ODI series, starting next month
