India vs Australia 3rd T20I Highlights: Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav's half centuries put India in cruise mode but Australia then put the squeeze in the death overs. The match came down to the penultimate ball, when Hardik Pandya managed to get a boundary and take India over the line. Cameron Green and Tim David's blazing half centuries earlier took Australia to 186/7. India lost openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul early but Kohli and Suryakumar's sensational 104-run stand for the third wicket, which came in just 62 balls, almost took the game away from Australia. Green himself played a big role with the ball in stemming the flow of runs on India in the latter overs but Kohli hit a six off the first delivery to give his team the impetus. Pandya then took the hosts over the line with one ball in hand.

    India vs Australia Live: India lift the trophy!

    Some banter as they lift the trophy. It is normally the new guy who does that but here, it seems the players have pushed the veteran Dinesh Karthik to do the honours. This has been some series and there have some truly impressive performances from the Indians, particularly their batters. As Rohit Sharma said, they would now be hoping that their bowlers come into the party in the death overs of the series against South Africa and the T20 World Cup later in the year. For now it's all champagne and celebrations and a goodbye from us!

    IND vs AUS Live: Rohit Sharma speaks

    It's a special place. We have had great memories playing for India and when I played for Deccan Chargers as well. Biggest positive was diffierent individuals stepping up and delivering. You feel good about it as a management. Margin of error in T20s is small. We took our chances, we were brave as well. Sometime it doesn't come off. There are areas to improve as well. Not easy coming back after a break against a tough team. They (Bumrah and Harshal) will take some time. Hopefully they can get back into their groove in the next series.

    India vs Australia Live: Axar Patel is the player of the series!

    “When you do well, and the team wins you feel nice. The things I do in the IPL, bowling in the powerplay and when you execute it well, feels nice. The line and lengths, I bowl, I back myself. Even if the batter hits a good shot, I back myself. I try and execute my plans.”

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: Suryakumar Yadav is the player of the match!

    “(His dismissal) In that situation, it was much needed. I thought let's take my chance. There were two-three shots in my mind, was trying to hit over mid-off. Thoughts have always been the same, have always wanted to express myself. That's how I practice in the nets. Just loving at No.4. A lot of challenges and responsibilities as well (for the T20 WC). You can't shy away from expressing yourself. Have to be smart.”

    IND vs AUS Live: The presentation ceremony 

    Murali Karthik conducting the presentation, he reads out the names of the dignitaries who are present. One of them is Mohammed Azharuddin, the president of the Hyderabad Cricket Association, and a mixture of boos and cheers ring out in the stadium.

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: Virat Kohli speaks

    I have to utilise my experience and give the team what they want. I had to take down Zampa because he is important through the middle. When Surya started hitting them, I looked at Rohit and Rahul bhai in the dug out and they just told me to bat on because we were building a partnership. As soon as he went away, I tried to take on the first couple of balls, got a six off Cummins and that set me off again. 

    (About Suryakumar Yadav) It is absolute clarity in what he wants to do. He has the game to bat in any conditions. He got a hundred in England, batted beautifully in Asia Cup, the last six months he has been outstanding. He has an array of shots and knows when to play those shots at the right time. He is a guy who knows his game inside out and has no fear whatsoever in trying to execute those shots. 

    (Taking on Zampa) He is a quality bowler and I decided to take him on today. I try to control my scoring rate whenever we play. I knew he is going to attack the stumps and so I stood outside the leg stump. Last time I was kind of disappointed that after hitting him for a four I went for two instead of trying a six. You spoke about the last over, I was not able to connect a few before that. The game shouldn't have gone on that long, we should have had around 5 to chase in the last over and not 11. I have enjoyed batting ever since I came back. Today also I was an hour and half before the team. I am excited and happy with my contributions. Just trying to place in safe space

    IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! INDIA BEAT AUSTRALIA BY 6 WICKETS!

    It is Pandya who hits the winning runs, beats short third man to squeeze this wide delivery from Sams for a four. What a match we have had here, what a way to end an absolutely thrilling series. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:32 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: OUT! And Kohli falls

    Did we say he may have ended the match with that? Apologies for that, this match just keeps on getting interesting. Kohli smashes the very next ball straight into the hands of Finch at extra cover. Hushed silence in the stadium for a second and then, as was the case with SKY, applause from around the ground. That is followed by chants of “DK! DK!” as Karthik makes his way into the middle.  

    Kohli c Finch b Sams 63 (48), India 182/4, need 5 to win off 4

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:29 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: SIX! KOHLI GOES BIG!

    Oh, how about that! Kohli goes all the way off the first ball of the last over and he may well have ended the match with that. India need 5 off 5. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:29 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: Last over, India need 11 to win

    Daniel Sams bowling the last over, Kohli is on strike, he has scored 57 off 56. Pandya at the other end with 21 off 14. Here we go!

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:28 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: Brilliant fielding from Maxwell!

    Two dot balls in the 19th, the pressure is on Kohli and he goes for the cover drive. Maxwell puts in a brilliant dive at deep cover to save what looked like a certain boundary. The batters run two. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:26 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: SIX! What a shot from Pandya!

    Low full toss, Pandya shovels that out, David running to his right from long on and maybe gets his finger tips to it but it goes all the way. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:23 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: 11 runs off the 18th over!

    Just one boundary in that over, from Pandya's bat, and yet the two batters have ran at the drop of a hat and that get them double digits from it. India need 21 to win from 12 balls. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:22 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: The endless 18th over

    Some big field changes and discussions after almost every ball. It seems Australia areon target as far as over rate is concerned and so they have no pressure in that regard. Four balls have been bowled, eight runs have been scored in this over. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:19 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: FOUR! Pandya produces something out of nothing

    No boundaries in the last two overs and Pandya ends the drought. Cummins sends it wide and quick, Pandya reaches out for it and gets an inside edge to it. The ball races to the boundary from that and India will take that, they need 27 to win off 16. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:12 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: Into the last 4 overs

    It's game on now, this match is going to have a sensational finish, as you would expect every time these two sides meet. India are 148/3 in 16 overs, need 39 to win off 24. Green gave away just five runs in the 16th over. That and the wicket of SKY has given Australia something to work with here. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:09 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: 33rd T20I half century for Kohli!

    He is up and running now, looking a completely different player to the one who seemed to be doubting himself all the time in the IPL last year. Kohli has got there in 37 balls and he will be looking to remain unbeaten here, as was the case the last time he played a T20I in Hyderabad.  

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:03 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: SIX! A shot and a half from Kohli!

    Oh what a beauty. He holds the pose for the cameras as well. Length delivery poutside off from Cummins, Kohli lofts it perfectly over cover and that flies past the boundary line. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 10:00 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: OUT! SKY finally falls!

    A great innings comes to an end. SKY holes out at long on, hushed silence around the stadium for a second before they all break out into applause. Kohli runs up to Suryakumar to give him a pat on the back as he walks off. What a show he has put up here. He hit five fours and as many sixes and his partnership for the fourth wicket with Kohli has brought on 104 off just 62 balls. Kohli dominated the first 50 runs in that stand, SKY for the rest. 

    Suryakumar Yadav c Finch b Green 69 (36), India 134/3 in 14 overs 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:57 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: SIX! This is incredible batting!

    Fielders? What are they? Send them away for some drinks and down time, they are useless against Suryakumar. He gets across to a knuckle ball on middle and flicks that over deep square leg. 100-run partnership between these two has come up in just 59 balls. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:56 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: FOUR! SKY is unstoppable now

    Hazlewood tries to cramp him for room, who cares, Suryakumar moves early, cramps him for room and slaps it over mid-on. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:54 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: BACK TO BACK SIXES!

    Oh he has done that again! Zampa tosses it up outside off, Suryakumar just nonchalantly lofts him over covers. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:53 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: SIX! Half century for Suryakumar Yadav!

    Zampa sends a full toss on SKY's legs, he bounces down the track and sends it flying over long-on. That is half century for Suryakumar and he gets there in 27 balls.

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:49 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: Close call for Kohli!

    Green bangs it in short, Kohli tries to pull but top edges it. The ball falls in the square leg region where there are no fielders and Kohli survives. One run off the next ball and India are 107/2 in 12 overs. Brilliant over from Green. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:46 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: SIX! India 103/2 in 11 overs

    There is Suryakumar Yadav, it seems Kohli has told him to take it on now. Cummins bangs it in short, Yadav somehow pulls that over midwicket. SKY is now on 42 off 22. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:41 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: 10 overs gone, a show is on!

    India 91/2 in 10 overs, need 96 to win from 60. Virat Kohli is on 35 off 25 while Suryakumar Yadav is on 31 off 17. The Kohli show is something that Hyderabad got to see the last time a T20I was played here while the SKY show is something that Indian fans have got to see a lot this year, and Mumbai Indians fans for many years now. Rarely have those two coincided but it seems to be happening now. Hop along for the ride while it lasts, folks.

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:36 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: SIX! Magic from SKY!

    Oh how about that for a shot! Fourth ball of the 10th from Sams, SKY gives himself room and then smashes that over cover into the stands. That has to be the shot of the series. India are absolutely flying now, they have reached 90 in 9.4 overs!

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:32 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: SIX! HUMONGOUS FROM KOHLI!

    No concern about this being Adam Zampa, someone who has got him out so many times in the past. He gives him the charge and sends it soaring over long-on. That shots exhudes authority from the former Indian captain, he has moved to 33 off 22. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:30 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: India 67/2 in 8 overs

    India going at exactly 10 runs an over. This partnership is worth 37 and it has already surpassed the one between Kohli and Rohit. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:28 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: FOUR AGAIN!

    Back to back boundaries! This time Suryakumar finds the gap between deep midwicket and deep square leg. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:27 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: FOUR! SKY gets one away

    Short from Maxwell and Suryakumar cuts it to left of deep point for his first boundary of the match. Maxwell has to be careful considering just how good SKY is with spinners. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:23 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: India 50/2 in 6 overs 

    Virat Kohli is on 22 off 15, Suryakumar has made four in three. India not too far behind where Australia were after Green's smash and grab in their powerplay and that is a very good sign, considering the extent to which the visitors slowed down after that. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:22 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: FOUR! Kohli is up and running!

    Hazlewood sends the next ball on length outside off and Kohli, all balance and grace, goes for the lofted cover drive. One bounce and four. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:21 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: SIX! Oh yes, Virat Kohli!

    Slow ball from Hazlewood, Kohli picks it up early and pulls it over deep midwicket. Hyderabad explodes for that one.

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:16 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! All class from Kohli!

    Length delivery from Green outside off and Kohli leans into the drive. That is as good looking a shot as it gets. India need a partnership between these two here. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:12 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: OUT! Rohit falls!

    Rohit hops down the pitch for a pull shot but ends up finding the fielder at backward square. Cummins gets his man!

    Rohit Sharma c Sams b Cummins 17 (14), India 30/2 in 3.4 overs 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:10 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: FOUR! Rohit motors along

    Couldn't control the pull but it lands safe and goes to the boundary. It had gone off the top edge but Rohit gets lucky with that one. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:09 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: FOUR! 

    No slips and Rohit reaps the benefits. He edges this ball and would have been a goner had there been a slip fielder. Instead, it runs off to the boundary. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:06 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! Kohli is off!

    Adam Zampa is in, Kohli has got out to him so many times in his career, let alone this series. He wins this small battle though. Zampa overpitches outside off, Kohli stays right there and nails the cover-drive. Trademark Rohit pull and trademark Kohli cover drive have both been spotted so far. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:04 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: SIX! THE ROHIT SHARMA PULL!

    Hazelwood sends that into Rohit's hitting arc and the Indian captain is not going to miss that. Shortish on off stump, Rohit pulls it from his hip and sends it over the boundary. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 09:00 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: GONE! What a catch from Wade!

    Top edge and the ball goes miles up in the night sky. It is swirling around up there, Wade calls early, puts out his arms to tell his team mates to stay clear and runs backwards at some pace. He stops suddenly and then has to dive forward to his left complete the catch. That was as tricky a catch as it gets, absolute expertise on display there from Wade.   

    Rahul c Wade b Sams 1 (4), India 5/1 in 1 over 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:58 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: Rohit and Rahul open for India!

    Daniel Sams bowls the first over for Australia. 187 for India to win the series, here we go!

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:43 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: Australia 186/7 in 20 overs

    Good finish from Harshal Patel in the end. Just one run and a wicket from the last five balls after that six off the first ball. This innings has been a thriller on its own. Cameron Green got Australia off to a flier-and-a-half, then the Indian bowlers led by Axar Patel pulled things back until the death overs. Once it got to that point, Tim David showed what he is made of and got Australia to 186. An off day from Jasprit Bumrah, who conceded 50 runs for no wickets but Axar and Harshal Patel towards the end did well for India. David and Sams put up a whopping 68 runs off just 34 balls, though, and that could turn out to be the difference between winning or losing this series. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:40 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: GONE! The end for David

    Tim David falls after an innings that may have turned the game back in Australia's favour. Good bowling from Harshal, shifts his line wide of off and David's attempted slog comes off the toe end of the bat. Rohit Sharma takes an easy catch. 

    Tim David c Rohit b Harshal 54 (27), AUS 185/7 in 19.3 overs

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:38 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: SIX! Half century for Tim David!

    A half century in just his third innings. What an innings this has been. Harshal misses the yorker and David smashes it back over the bowler's head. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:38 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: Into the last over, Australia 179/6!

    39 runs off the last two overs! How things change in this format. 190 now well within reach for Australia and maybe even 200. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:35 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: OVERTHROWS AND SIX RUNS!

    None of this is going India's way at the moment. Sams smashes Bumrah for a six off the first ball. A yorker next ball that Sams digs out for a single. Then what should have been just two runs becomes six when Pandya's attempted direct hit misses and nobody is there to back him up. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:33 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! 6, 6, 4 to end the 18th!

    Well how many times has this happened to Bhuvi in the recent past. He waits for this one and hits it between midwicket and long-on. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:31 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: SIX AGAIN!

    Full toss now and David whips it away over deep-midwicket for another. Bhuvi misses his length again and David cashes in. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:31 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: SIX!

    David comes down the pitch and sends a half volley from Bhuvi over the bowler's head. That is what Australia need. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:29 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: Into the last 3 overs, Bhuvi brought back

    Australia are 140/6. 190 seems to be out of question now for them but they can still get to a very good score with Tim David and Daniel Sams in the middle, Pat Cummins still to come. All of them can hit the ball a mile. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:21 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: FOUR! Beauty from David!

    Pandya cramps David for room but the batter plays it late and sends it racing to the boundary between third man and point. Some momentum back for Australia, they are 134/6 in 16 overs. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:20 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: SIX! 

    Rohit Sharma smiles seeing that. Sams has made a botch of this attempted lap shot really but the ball still flies straight back over the wicketkeeper's head after taking the top of the bat. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:17 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: Into the last 4 overs, Australia 123/6

    Australia have gone from being well above par to par at this stage of the innings. The commentators continue saying that this is a great pitch and things are only going to get more difficult for the bowlers later in the match with whatever amount of dew that is about to set in. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:11 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: OUT! Axar gets the big man Wade!

    This is Axar's last over and he may just have changed the game completely. Australia's quick start seems to have been completely undone now. Matthew Wade checks an attempted punch shot and ends up spooning it straight back to the bowler. All eyes on Tim David now. 

    Wade c & b Axar 1 (3), Australia 117/6 in 13.5 overs 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:08 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: GONE! Axar gets his 2nd!

    A wicket exactly when India needed. Tries to make room and loft it over cover, ends up lobbing it to Rohit at backward point. 

    Inglis c Rohit b Axar 24 (22), Australia 115/5 in 13.1 overs

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:04 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: Harshal receiving treatment

    Harshal had stopped a drive from David with his right hand in his follow-through. That was powerfully hit and Harshal needs some attention on that hand. Nothing serious, though, and he comes back to bowl the fifth. He bowled a wide and a no ball consecutively and so this over is taking a while to get over. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 08:00 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: SIX! David goes after Harshal!

    Harshal pitches it up outside off and David sends it soaring over the bowler's head. That is almost as big as the one that Green hit earlier in this innings. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:57 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: FOUR! 100 up for Australia!

    Chahal takes it away from Inglis and yet the batter reaches it and hits it over extra cover. That's three figures up for Australia. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:55 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: Australia 95/4 in 11 overs

    Just one boundary in the last two overs. And yet, Australia still have a score that can be considered good at this stage of the innings. They run the danger of stalling though and Rohit has brought on Chahal and Bumrah to put further breaks on this innings. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:47 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: GONE! Smith falls!

    India have pulled things back here. Smith gives Chahal the charge, misses it completely and DK makes no mistake with the straightforward stumping.  

    Smith st Karthik b Chahal 9 (10), Australia 84/4 in 9.2 overs

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:44 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: Australia 83/3 in 9 overs

    Well the replay of that entire run out incident has been played in the stadium's big screen a couple of times, prompting “DK! DK!” chants to go up around the stadium. Rohit Sharma had given DK a kiss after the decision was shown on the big screen. In one series, Rohit has strangled DK, hugged DK and kissed DK in each of the three matches. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:38 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: GONE! Contentious run out, Maxwell is not happy

    Well this match has almost everything you can expect from a T20I game already and we are still three overs away from the first 10 overs being completed. Dinesh Karthik is very, very lucky here. A brilliant throw from Axar Patel at short fine leg and in real time, it looked like that was a direct hit and Maxwell was well out. The decision goes upstairs and replays show that DK may have whipped off the bails before the ball hit. But another angle shows that while Karthik did disturb one bail, the other was intact until the ball actually hit the stumps. The Indians on the field and in the stands waited with bated breath and the third umpire decided that since the bails truly came off only after the ball hit it and DK had no contact with the ball at all. Maxwell is shaking his head and screaming into his hands while covering his face as he walks off. It was the correct decision, though, he will realise that once he looks at the replay after having a cold shower. 

    Maxwell run out (Axar) 6 (11), Australia 75/3 in 7.4 overs

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:35 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: Dropped!

    That should have been taken, Steve Smith has got a lifeline here. Short and wide from Hardik, the ball flies to Axar Patel at backward point and the ball just bursts out of his hands. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:31 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: FOUR! Class from Smith

    Hardik Pandya bowls the first over after powerplay and Smith leans into a pitched up deliver for a lovely off drive. His first boundary of the innings. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:27 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: End of the powerplay, Australia 66/2 

    And breath. Pure carnage, that is how you can describe that powerplay. It was all Green and Glenn Maxwell bookended all that with a four off Axar off the last ball of the sixth. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:24 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: OUT! It's Green!

    He lived by the sword and now he dies by it. Bhuvneshwar kept trying to take it away from Green and the batter finally succumbs to the tactic. Green takes a swing at the wide delivery and holes out to Rahul inside the 30-yard circle. A brilliant knock comes to an end. 

    Green c Rahul b Bhuvneshwar 52 (21), Australia 62/2 in 5 overs 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:23 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: FIFTY FOR CAMERON GREEN!

    Hyderabad applauds what has been a truly extraordinary innings. He has already done his job and more, a half century with more than an over the spare in the powerplay!

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:18 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: HAT-TRICK OF FOURS!

    Well the fielders don't exist for Green today. He has raced to 49 off just 18 balls already! Green had screamed at Finch to cross over when he was getting caught and then he proceeds to hit all of the remaining balls in that over for fours. He has taken on Bumrah and Axar and so far, he has come out on top like it is nothing. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:15 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: GONE! Axar gets the breakthrough!

    Finch goes aerial but doesn't connect well at all. He holes out to mid-on. It is Finch, not Green, but India will take it. 

    Finch c Pandya b AR Patel 7 (6), Australia 44/1 in 3.3 overs

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: BACK TO BACK SIXES!

    Green does not care that it is Bumrah who is bowling to him. Sits back and pulls it over the midwicket boundary. Australia are 40/0 in 3 overs, Green on 37 off 15!

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:13 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: SIX! MASSIVE FROM GREEN!

    That ball has said hello to the clouds and then fallen back to the stadium, where it nestles in the second tier. Green smashes Bumrah back over his head. He is really liking this T20I format, it is only his this match!

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:12 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: FOUR! Mistimed but powerful

    It is Jasprit Bumrah bowling the third but it doesn't matter to Green. Full length and Green smacks that between midwicket and mid-on along the ground. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:09 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: Green-fire! Australia 23/0 in 2 overs

    Green managed to connect one more for his third boundary of this innings and then takes another swipe at the last ball, which he misses. Luck has been smiling at him from ear to ear today. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:06 PM IST

    India vs Australia Live: FOUR! Green again!

    Axar erres in his length, goes a bit short and Green makes room and punches it through covers. He has made 16 in just 7 balls. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:04 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: Australia 12/0 after 1 over

    Ferocious and lucky, that is what Cameron Green was in that first over. He swung at every single ball that came his way, the last three balls were all swung at, none of them connected. Axar Patel bowls the second. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:03 PM IST

    3rd T20I Live: FOUR! 

    Oh Green! The third ball of the over kicks up off a length, big man Green cracks it between extra cover and point. What a start for Australia!

  • Sep 25, 2022 07:01 PM IST

    IND vs AUS Live: SIX! Green making his intentions clear

    Green whips the second ball of the first over for a six over square leg. He had taken an almighty swing at the first ball as well and that landed in no-man's land. Safe to say that Cameron Green is looking to attack early on. 

  • Sep 25, 2022 06:59 PM IST

    India vs Australia 3rd T20I live: The players are out!

    Aaron Finch and Cameron Green open for Australia, it is Green who faces the first ball. Probably because of the problems Finch has had against Bhuvneshwar Kumar, says Sunil Gavaskar in the commentary box. Bhuvi it is who bowls the first over.

    India vs Australia Live: What to expect from the pitch

    Murali Kartik and Ajit Agarkar say in their pitch report that this is another good batting surface. A “fairly large surface with even sized boundaries on both sides of the square”. Importantly, dew won't be a factor.

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: Aaron Finch talks

    “We would have fielded as well, it looks like a good wicket though. We always want to perform against the best sides, in that sense this is a very important game for us. The crowds in India have always been amazing, regardless of where they play. One change for us. Josh Inglis comes in place of Sean Abbott.”

    3rd T20I Live: What Rohit Sharma said

    “We will bowl first. It's good to be back in Hyderabad and play in front of this crowd. We look to keep winning games, it's important to maintain your momentum in this format of the game, so it was a good win for us (in Nagpur). Australia have always been challenging, they bring in a different kind of challenge. We need to keep doing the basics right if we have to get success. The last win helped us gain confidence and I hope everyone steps up today. One change for us - Bhuvi is back, Rishabh misses out, we needed only 4 bowlers in the last game, so he (Bhuvneshwar) unfortunately missed out.”

    3rd T20I Live: The last time Hyderabad hosted a T20I…

    ‘The Virat Kohli Show’ was on. The West Indies batted first and scored a mammoth 207/5. Virat Kohli started his innings in a measured manner and then accelarated systematically. So brutal was his assault towards the end that India actually chased down the target with eight balls to spare. Kohli, was unbeaten on 94 off 50 balls.

    IND vs AUS Live: Rain check

    Well there has been some rain in Hyderabad but there is nothing on the forecast throughout the match. It has to be noted though, that it wasn't rain that was the problem during the 2nd T20I. While the valiant groundsmen ran from pillar to post in order to make the ground fit to play on, there was not a drop of rain that fell throughout the duration of the match. Let's hope that the rains today does not cause a wet outfield in Hyderabad.

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: DK - come, see, conquer, repeat

    India's plans are somewhat obscure going into the T20 World Cup, which has been the case for a few years now, but one thing seems to be certain - Dinesh Karthik will not come on before the 16th over unless they have no choice but to bring him on. Those who have watched cricket for longer than the last 2 years would know that is a bit unfair, Karthik has proven himself playing in a number of positions accross formats but for now, he is seen as the ultimate finisher. He put his efficiency in that role on display once again in the 2nd T20I, smashing a six and a four off the only two balls he faced throughout the match. Both those shots came off the first two balls of the last over, with the second one sealing the win. He came, he saw, he conquered, repeat. That is what DK has been upto over the past year and a half.

    India vs Australia Live: Matthew Wade

    The senior Australian wicketkeeper seems to be in the form of his life. Wade scored an unbeaten 43 off 20 balls in the second T20I, which apart from Finch's 31 off 15 is one of the biggest reasons why Australia got to a score of 90/5. Before that, he smashed an unbeaten 45 off 21 balls hitting a hat-trick of fours off Bhuvneshwar Kumar at the end of the 19th over to all but take Australia over the line. It was a boundary from Pat Cummins off the second ball of the next over that finally gave Australia a 1-0 lead in the series.

  • Sep 25, 2022 05:30 PM IST

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: The series thus far

    India's death over bowling struggles came under even further scrutiny after Matthew Wade's late assault helped Australia chase down 209 with four balls and four wickets to spare. Then, Nagpur was made to wait for its first international match in ages because of rains from the previous day that puddled up on the ground and made it dangerous to play on in an era of drainage systems and retractable pitches, none of which have made their way to most grounds in India despite the BCCI's riches. However, if that means that every match will be reduced to 8-over-a-side sprints, fans wouldn't mind outdated technology in their stadiums. Nagpur got to watch a thriller in which Wade was the protagonist once again for Australia but this time, it was India doing the chasing and they did so with four balls to spare as well.

    3rd T20I Live: A chequered buildup

    There has been a stampede before this match because of an utter lack of organisation in ticket sales. A blame game has followed since then, with the HCA and its president Mohammed Azharuddin saying that the association did no wrong. Now, the Central Crime Branch (CCB) has “arrested a 35-year-old man for alleged betting on” the match, PTI reported today. “Raghavendra was arrested from Deepanjali Nagar, Bengaluru by a team of CCB for allegedly betting on the decider India vs Australia T20 match to be played in Hyderabad. According to police, 3.06 lakhs of cash and a mobile phone were seized from the accused possession.” Not the kind of stories you want to see in the buildup to a crucial game in a well fought series.

    IND vs AUS 3rd T20I Live: Hello and welcome! 

    Here we are then, Australia won the first match, India won the second, bowlers took a hammering in both games. Wonder what awaits us in Hyderabad. Regardless of what happens in this match though, Australia have shown that they will make a good accounts of themselves as defending champions in the upcoming T20 World Cup at home later this year. In this series alone, they have shown that their batting lineup is among the most dangerous in the world. Their bowling, though, would be a bit of a cause of worry.
