Rain threatened a washout of the second one-day international here Tuesday between India and Australia after the opening game met a similar fate last week.
A heavy shower Monday morning ruined the training plans of the teams at the Kerala Cricket Association ground, which is soggy after days of monsoon rains.
With the weathermen forecasting rain on Tuesday as well, chances of any play look bleak.
The opening one-dayer at Bangalore on Saturday had to be abandoned after India had batted just 2.4 overs while chasing Australia's 307 for seven.
The worries about the weather apart, the teams are also grappling with injuries ahead of the tie.
Adam Gilchrist, who led the visitors in place of the injured Ricky Ponting in Bangalore, hoped the skipper would be available for selection this time.
"He's progressing very well. We have not finalised the team as yet. We will assess his condition before the match here and there is a good chance of him playing," the vice-captain told reporters.
"It is always sad to lose the best batsman in the world. But we're not unstable. We think we've depth," he added.
As for the home side, they will be without former captain Sourav Ganguly.
Ganguly, 35, limped off the ground while fielding during Saturday's first match in Bangalore.
Scans revealed no serious injury and Ganguly is expected to take the field in the third game in Hyderabad on Friday, Indian cricket board secretary Niranjan Shah said.
"An MRI scan was performed on Sourav's right hamstring and it has determined no injury to the region," Shah said in a statement.
"Based on the findings, vigorous rehab approach will be commencing immediately. The team management feels that Sourav will progress quickly and hence it was decided to give him a one game rest."
The left-hander, a veteran of 303 one-day internationals, has hit 1,024 runs at an average of 51.20 since his recall to the side in January following a spell out of the team.
Indian batsman Robin Uthappa is also recovering from a hamstring problem, while off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is expected to be available for Tuesday's match after missing the first game with a neck sprain.
India, the newly crowned Twenty20 world champions, and one-day kings Australia are playing a seven-match one-day series that ends on October 17.
