How to watch Australia vs India 3rd T20 live and free in Australia
A depleted Australia is playing for pride as India hunt a clean sweep of the Twenty20 series. Here's how to watch the 3rd T20 in Australia.
Badly affected by injury and unavailability, Australia's makeshift bowling attack was unable to contain explosive Indian batsman Hardik Pandya in the second T20. Pandya smoked 42 not out off 22 balls to give India a six-wicket victory with two balls to spare.
India now has an unassailable lead in the best-of-three series. Australia will hope to learn more about some of its fringe players as it builds towards next year's T20 World Cup in India.
When is the Australia vs India 3rd T20?
The third T20 at the Sydney Cricket Ground starts at 7:10pm AEDT on Tuesday 8 December. Organisers are hoping for a full house at the famous ground as NSW COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Who will win the Australia vs India 3rd T20?
This writer is generally sceptical of momentum in sport, but it does seem to play a role in T20 matches. After two losses to start the tour, Virat Kohli's India now have their chests puffed out again with three wins on the trot. Add that to Australia's injury woes and we'll pick the visitors to complete a series clean sweep in front of what should be a big crowd packed with colourful, noisy Indian fans.
