Consistent rain played spoilsport as the first day of the third Test between India and Australia was called off without a ball being bowled.
Amidst the one-sided results in the first two Tests and the problems in the Australian camp, it is almost forgotten that this is an Indian side which is undergoing transition and trying to find its feet once again. For a relatively inexperienced and young Indian side, the performances so far have been laudable. The pressure is on Australia now; the theoretical homework went all wrong, it's now time for practicals.
