Persistent light rain prevented any play in the morning session at the Sydney Cricket Ground Sunday with Australia struggling on 236 for six in the fourth and final Test against India.

A huge storm rolled in late Saturday, forcing play to finish half an hour early, and the overcast skies lingered into Sunday. Lunch on day four was taken without a ball being bowled.

Peter Handscomb was not out 28 and Pat Cummins was on 25.

India declared their first innings on 622 for seven.

The visitors lead 2-1 after victories in Adelaide and Melbourne and are fast closing in on a historic first-ever series win since they began touring Australia in 1947-48
