India vs Australia second T20 international goes live at the Melbourne Cricket Ground at 1.20pm IST. The first T20i match of the series was a close encounter with Australia triumphing with 4 runs with a bit of help from M/s Duckworth and Lewis. The second T20i promises to be equally riveting. Some lucky folks in India have a holiday today and can enjoy the match from the comfort of their living room. The rest of the cricket enthusiast have very little reason to miss India vs Australia live action courtesy of internet and live streaming. So here’s how you can catch the match irrespective of where you are.

With a Chromecast, it’s very simple because the Sony LIV app supports casting. Open the Sony LIV app on your smartphone or tablet, start the match stream and then tap on the casting icon on top, choose your Chromecast and cast it on your TV. Make sure your phone/tablet and Chromecast are on the same Wi-Fi network. The same method works with some of the newer Google certified TVs with built-in Chromecast too.
If you do not have a Chromecast and your Smart TV doesn’t have one built-in either, look for the Sony LIV app on the TV’s app store.
