Cuttack: The fifth one-day International between India and Australia is likely to be called off on Saturday morning after the umpires inspection as there was no let up from rain for the last five days.

"We don't have the right to call the match off officially. But we have already announced the dates for ticket refund which obviously means the match has been offically abandoned," OCA secretary Asirbad Behera told PTI on Saturday.

The last one-day in Ranchi was also abandoned after 4.1 overs of India's chase of 296 as Australia continued to hold on to their 2-1 lead in the bilateral series.
