India vs Australia 3rd T20 highlights: Australian skipper Aaron Finch won the toss and elected to bat first. The hosts made one change to their playing XI as Mitchell Starc returned for the shortest format after a gap of more than two years. The Indian cricket team, on the other hand, is going in with an unchanged XI. “It’s always lovely to play in Sydney, we get a lot of support here. Always a full house and 85% Indian fans here. Our intensity was right up there in the last game and we’re really looking forward to this one,” Virat Kohli said at the toss.

Starc’s last T20 International had come in September 2016 and but his addition will boost the hosts’ confidence that lead the series 1-0. The home team looked good in the first game at The Gabba but struggled against a motivated Indian bowling attack at the MCG.

At the Sydney Cricket Ground, Virat Kohli would hope his side to continue the good work and level the series. The management is unlikely to make any change in the playing XI since the batsmen haven’t got much chance to prove themselves in the two rain-affected games while all the bowlers did a decent job on Friday. Interestingly, India has never lost the third match of a bilateral T20I series, winning all the nine games they featured in.

Great start for India.

15:36 (IST)25 Nov 2018

Poor bowling from Coulter-Nile. He doesn't have the speed like Starc but keeps bowling short. Dhawan picks it easily and smashes it over the deep mid-wicket boundary. This is turning out to be a big over for India and the hosts are under pressure. 

Dhawan finishes the over with a four. 20 runs from that over!

Australia finish well

Late blows from Marcus Stoinis and Nathan Coulter-Nile have ensured that the hosts finish at a strong total. But, Virat Kohli would know that it could have been worse the way Aaron Finch and D'Arcy Short were going. However, a couple of quick wickets from Pandya helped the men in blue to pull things back. We have an exciting run-chase on our hands.

14:57 (IST)25 Nov 2018

Another wicket! Pandya on a roll

Krunal Pandya strikes again. Two in two for him.

Poor cricket from Ben McDermott, plays across the line on the very first ball and is trapped in front of the wicket. The finger goes and India is on top. Alex Carey is the new man in.

14:07 (IST)25 Nov 2018
OUT! Short departs

Ouch! Krunal Pandya traps Short in front of the wicket, Maxwell advised his partner to go for DRS but the decision stayed. Australia lose a wicket and also a review. Short departs for 33 and India is delighted.

14:06 (IST)25 Nov 2018
Maxwell survives

Good review by Glenn Maxwell and he can thank Short for this. It was pitched in line and hit Maxwell right in front of the wicket. The finger went up but the Aussie batsman took the review and survived.

14:01 (IST)25 Nov 2018

DROPPED! Rohit Sharma allows it to slip

Krunal Pandya - almost, got a wicket on his first ball. It was pitched by up the left-arm spinner and all Finch managed on that was height. It went miles up as Rohit waited at long on. But, the Mumbai Indians skipper allows that one to slip.

13:54 (IST)25 Nov 2018
Early signs of turn

This is a bright sign for the Indian side. There is turn and bounce in the wicket. Virat Kohli would hope that the Indian spinners are able to exploit that as the game goes on. 

However, the first over by Kuldeep gives an impression that Chahal could have been included in the side for this one.

13:51 (IST)25 Nov 2018
Kuldeep Yadav comes into the attack

Some cracking shots by the Aussie openers in the last few overs have forced the Indian skipper to introduce spin as soon as the fielding restrictions were removed. This has suddenly turned into a great start by the Australian side. 

50 comes up in the seventh over. 

13:49 (IST)25 Nov 2018

Australia - 49/0 (6 Overs)

13:45 (IST)25 Nov 2018
Expensive over for India!

There you go! The Australian openers are going after everything now. Khaleel Ahmed gave away 13 runs in that over and his figures aren't looking that great. The youngster is still at the learning stage but he is once again proving expensive.

The score after 5 overs is 41/0.

13:41 (IST)25 Nov 2018
Both teams would be happy with the start

It has been a decent start for both sides. Australia is yet to lose a wicket but the Indian bowlers have made sure that they don't concede easy runs. It will be interesting to see if the hosts could up the scoring rate from here.

13:34 (IST)25 Nov 2018
India vs Australia live cricket score update

Australia - 21/0 (3 Overs)

D Arcy Short - 11 (9)

Aaron Finch - 7 (9)

13:27 (IST)25 Nov 2018
BANG! Four for Finch

What a shot! The ball was short from Khaleel and Finch picked it straightway. The Australian skipper literally slapped that one for a four. He gets his first boundary and moves onto 5. Good start for Australia!

13:24 (IST)25 Nov 2018
First boundary of the inning

The first four of the match comes from D'Arcy Short's blade and we are underway. The pitch looks good for batting and the ball is coming onto the bat nicely. The initial impression is that there won't be much assistance for the pacers.

8 runs come from Bhuvi's first over.

There is a good news for the fans and teams. The forecast for the day promises no rain. The ground has a history of big scores. But, this year in the Big Bash League, a total of 180-plus was achieved only once in four games. So, a slow-paced wicket can be expected.
