India have postponed Tuesday's third one-day international against West Indies because of Cyclone Hudhud.

The 127mph cyclone has been pounding India's eastern coast near the city of Visakhapatnam, where Tuesday's game had been due to take place, and at least six people have been killed.

The teams have remained in Delhi, where Saturday's second ODI was held.

The match will not be rescheduled, with the series - originally five matches - due to resume in Dharamsala on Friday.

Anurag Thakur, joint secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, told Cricinfo: "It is disappointing but we cannot overcome natural calamities.

"Even though the host association was hopeful of staging the match if weather cleared, the BCCI didn't want to take any risk."
