Bad weather forced the Twenty20 world championship group D match between India and Scotland to be abandoned without a ball being bowled here on Thursday.
Persistent rain since the afternoon frustrated the two teams after Scotland captain Ryan Watson won the toss and sent India in to bat at the Kingsmead.
Play could not begin and Australian umpires Simon Taufel and Steve Davis called off the match when not enough time was left to bowl a minimum of five overs a side to force a result.
Both teams were awarded one point each, leaving India facing a tricky encounter against arch-rivals Pakistan here on Friday.
India need a win to ensure their place in the Super Eights along with Pakistan.
If Pakistan win, net run rates of India and Scotland will decide the second position from the group in the next round.
Pakistan beat Scotland by 51 runs here on Wednesday.
