India vs Australia 2020, Live Cricket Score, 3rd T20I Today’s Match: 27 off 6. And Abbott has been given the responsibility of bowling the last over. Sundar starts the over with a boundary before hitting the ball straight to Tye at backward point. Shardul smokes one over the cow corner fence for a maximum.
India managed 14 runs off the last over but Australia have beaten the visitors by 12 runs. The series score-line stands at 2-1, in favour of India.
Preview: Australia take on India in the third and final T20I of the series at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Tuesday.
Having already lost the series, revenge would be on the minds of the hosts while Virat Kohli and Co would aim to continue the winning momentum and register a series sweep before the Test series begins.
India captured the series by winning the first T20I by 11 runs at Canberra and then the second match at Sydney by six wickets. With the 2021 T20 World Cup fast approaching, the series win highlights India's growing strength in the format.
The rise of Thangarasu Natarajan has added another dimension to India's pace attack, which has managed to deliver even in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.
Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya, with their match-winning knocks in the 1st and 2nd T20Is respectively, have allayed the fears of India not having a finisher in their ranks.
On the other hand, Australia's bench strength — D'Arcy Short, Mitchell Swepson, Andrew Tye, Sean Abbott, and Daniel Sams — has failed to impress in the absence of regulars like Aaron Finch, David Warner, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, and Josh Hazlewood. It must be noted that Finch, Hazlewood, and Starc played in the 1st T20I which was won by India.
Australia would hope for their fringe players to come good in the third T20I as they aim to avoid being swept in a series at home.
