India vs Australia 2020 Highlights, 3rd T20I Match at Sydney, Full Cricket Score: Hosts clinch victory by 12 runs

17:43 (IST)

So, Australia won the ODI series, India clinched T20I series and now focus shifts to red-ball cricket. Four Tests in Australia and chance for the hosts to take revenge for their previous series defeat at home. Hope you have enjoyed our coverage, we will be back for the Test cricket starting on 17 December. See you soon!  

17:40 (IST)

Man of the Series, Hardik Pandya: I'm very pleased, and wouldn't mind getting the award, but it was a team effort. After the 2nd ODI we thought we'd make this a 4-match series and we managed to get three wins, so happy with that. I don't mind giving interviews because you only have those when you're on the winning side. I haven't seen my child for four months, so I'd like to spend some time with my family right now.

17:37 (IST)

India captain Virat Kohli: Look, T20 cricket you have to take your chances. At one stage, when Hardik was there, we thought that we could have pulled it off. The middle over phase during our batting cost us the game. A partnership of 30-odd would've made it easier for Hardik. We are finding ways to come back and give the opposition a scare and the series win is a little asterisk for us to finish the 2020 season on a high. This game was still competitive. The crowd was a factor as well. It just gives you another dimension. When crowds are there, it’s a different atmosphere altogether and we as players feed on them. We need to take the same competitive attitude into the Tests, and having played here a few times, we can score runs as well. I'll see if I can play the tour match. 

 
 

17:35 (IST)

Aaron Finch: It was a great series, and we just happened to be on the wrong end of the first two. It's the first time we've had two leg-spinners in the side, and they were bold with the short boundaries here, so credit to both of them. We played some great white-ball cricket over the last 18 months and really proud of the bunch."

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.

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.

India vs Australia, Highlights, 4th Test at Brisbane, Day 4, Full Cricket Score: Play abandoned due to rain; visitors need 324 runs to win

Alright, so the play has been abandoned on Day 4 due to rain. It is still pouring at Gabba. We have lost around 27 overs again today, with one more day to go and even if we start half an hour early, we won't be able to see recovering these overs tomorrow. So India need to bat out 98 overs tomorrow. They are 4/0 currently. Australia batted well to set India a target of 328 earlier. Siraj completed his first five-for and let this day be just about him and the Indian bowlers. They were seen as an inexperienced attack, and no one hoped a lot from them, they were rather expected to struggle but Siraj led from the front, Natarajan bowled with heart, Thakur showed his first-class experience and Saini bowled in second innings despite groin injury, Sundar kept picking wickets and kept it tight from one end as lone spinner. Magnificent day for India with the ball in hand. Theyhave picked 20 wickets in the game. See you tomorrow at 4 am IST. Expect a hard day of Test cricket from the two teams. Till then, take care and good-bye.

That brings us to the end of our coverage of the third day of the decisive third Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with Australia clearly on top and favourites to go 2-1 up with a lead just shy of the 200-mark. India will need to bowl and bat out of their skins if they are to think of keeping their chances in this match alive. Can they make the Sunday a special one for fans back home in India? We’ll find out tomorrow…

India vs Australia Highlights, 3rd Test at SCG, Day 2, Full Cricket Score: Pujara, Rahane guide visitors to 96/2 at stumps

A very long day comes to an end. India bowled well to curtail Aussies to 338. Great hundred by Steve Smith before Jadeja ran him out. He also took four wickets, two with yorkers (yes you read it right). He was a livewire in the field and produced dividends with the ball. Rohit and Gill gave India a solid base. Both back to the hut now. Gill did score his maiden fifty. Rahane and Pujara in the middle got better with time spent on the pitch. Rahane will face the first ball tomorrow. We will see you again at 3.30 am IST tomorrow. Remember the Day 3 begins at 4.30, so do Day 4 and 5 to make up for overs lost due to rain on Day 1. See you tomorrow, take care and good bye.
