4.6 overs (3 Runs) Three more! This time for Smith and this time it has gone off the middle of the bat. Short and wide outside off, Smith punches it through the covers. The cover fielder gives it a chase and keeps it down to three. Expensive over from Chahar. 17 off it.
4.5 overs (3 Runs) EDGY RUNS! Low full toss outside off, Wade looks to drive but gets an inside edge. The ball races towards the fine leg fence. Sundar from short fine leg gives it a chase and saves a single for the team.
4.4 overs (1 Run) Good length and outside off, flicked to deep square leg for a single.
4.3 overs (1 Run) Good length and around off, pushed towards the cover region for a quick single.
4.3 overs (1 Run) WIDE! Chahar tries to stay away from the hitting zone and bangs it short too but this one goes way outside off. Wade lets it be. Wided.
4.2 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Consecutive boundaries. Fuller and outside off, Wade creams it over covers and it races away to the fence. This is brilliant batting from Wade.
4.1 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Hammered! Wade is looking in a good touch again. Short and wide outside off, it is the slower one from Chahar. Wade pumps it over mid-wicket for a boundary.
3.6 overs (1 Run) Leg bye to finish. There was an appeal for lbw though but it was turned down. Indians do not review it, maybe pitching outside leg. Shortish ball on the pads, Matthew gets down to sweep but misses. It comes off his pads and goes to the off side and Australia sneak in a leg bye. 12 runs off Washington's second over. This after a good first over which cost just 4 runs and he snared the wicket of skipper Finch as well.
3.5 overs (1 Run) Flat ball on middle, Smith forces it to the right side of the bowler and gets a single as Sundar gets in a tangle with Wade in his attempt of stopping the ball.

2.6 overs (0 Run) Yes, he can! Terrific stuff from him. A fullish ball just outside off, Smith throws the bat at it but the ball moves away and beats the outside edge. Top over from Deepak.
2.5 overs (1 Run) Short and outside off, it is the slower one from Chahar. Wade pulls it to deep mid-wicket for one. Just 2 from the over so far. Can Chahar end it well?

1.5 overs (0 Run) Quicker one on the pads, Wade looks to work it on the leg side but misses to get hit on the pad. The Indians appeal for a LBW but nothing results. They think for the DRS but opt against it. Pandya was suggesting that they have two DRS and they can take the risk of taking one here.
Who's in for the hosts at No. 3? It is Steven Smith.

0.4 over (0 Run) In the channel outside off, Wade this time offers no shot.
0.3 over (4 Runs) FOUR! Wade and Australia are underway in a streaky fashion. A length ball well outside off, following Wade there. He premediates and goes for the scoop over short fine leg but ends up getting a top edge that goes over short third man for a boundary.

0.1 over (0 Run) Chahar is right on the money! Fuller and just outside off, a hint of swing for Chahar first up. Wade looks to drive but ends up pushing it back to the bowler.
Right, we are all set to get underway in the 3rd T20I then. The Indian players step out to the middle and take their positions on the field. There is a change in the Australian opening pair for this game. The captain, Aaron Finch, is back. He will be opening alongside Matthew Wade. Deepak Chahar, the usual suspect, will start with the ball for India. 4...3...2...1...HERE WE GO!
Australia (Playing XI) - Aaron Finch (C) (IN PLACE OF MARCUS STOINIS), Matthew Wade (WK), Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, D'Arcy Short, Moises Henriques, Daniel Sams, Sean Abbott, Mitchell Swepson, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa.

Australia captain, Aaron Finch, tells that they would've bowled first too. Hopes to put on a good score on a used wicket and put pressure on the opposition. Informs that Stoinis is out from this game and he replaces him. Feels that they need to bowl better in this game and feels that the no balls, which if they can control, will be good for them. Tells that 190 should be a decent score. Adds that they were doing pretty well in the last game but says Pandya played really well. Ends by saying that they need to be careful while defending as it is tough doing that here but wants to do all they can.
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, tells that shorter boundary and their last game is the reason why they want to chase again. Wants to be more professional with the ball. Adds that it's been a good year for India this year in terms of shortest format of the game. Feels that need to stay ahead of the opposition in every game. Wants individuals to keep standing up and win the game for the team. Informs they are unchanged.
Toss - The two captains are out in the middle for the toss. And yes, Aaron Finch is back to lead the Aussies in the final game. He is alongside Virat Kohli. The coin goes up and lands in Virat's advantage. INDIA WILL FIELD FIRST!
After getting hammered in 2 ODIs and eventually losing the series, Virat Kohli's men bounced back to win the final ODI and then consecutive T20Is to win the T20I series with one game to go. We welcome you for the third and final game of the series. One can call it dead rubber as this doesn't change the status of the series but with the T20 World Cup approaching, no game is dead rubber. Will the Aussies be able to find their groove and end the series on a high or will the Indians whitewash them? We will soon find out as the game is not too far away.
