How to watch Australia vs India T20 Game 2 live and free in Australia
This Twenty20 series has some added spice after India beat Australia in a controversial opener. Here's how to watch game 2 in Australia.
India's 11-run victory in the opening clash in Canberra was triggered by a man-of-the-match performance by leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. He took 3-25 after starting the match carrying the drinks as 12th man.
Chahal was allowed to replace Ravi Jadeja as a concussion substitute, a move that left Australian coach Justin Langer fuming. There's not much time to dwell, however, with Australia now staring at a must-win game two in Sydney. Captain Aaron Finch is also in doubt with a hip/glute injury.
When is Australia vs India T20 Game 2?

Who will win Australia vs India T20 Game 2?
The Aussies will be happy to return to the SCG, where they piled on the runs in two convincing ODI wins against India. The tourists then won back-to-back internationals in Canberra and so have genuine momentum on their side.
We'll tip Australia to get back to winning ways and level the series. Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell have too much class to miss out again, although strike bowler Mitchell Starc has withdrawn from the remainder of the series on compassionate grounds due to a family illness.
