Persistent rain meant even the toss could not take place. The game was supposed to start at 7 pm local time but after inspecting the conditions at 7:30 pm, the umpires decided to call off the game.
This is the second consecutive match in the series which has been washed out. The second T20 was also abandoned due to rain on Thursday.
India lead the five-match series 1-0.
The hosts managed to defend 130 in the series opener with spinner Deepti Sharma producing a match-winning effort, ending with phenomenal figures of three for eight in four overs including three maidens.
