Watch the third T20I between Australia and India LIVE on Fox Cricket 501 from 6.30pm.

Australia is 2-157 after 17 overs after being sent out to bat, with Matthew Wade (76) and Glenn Maxwell (46) at the crease.

Wade could have been out lbw for 50, trapped plumb in front by T Natarajan but the appeal was rejected by the umpire and Virat Kohli’s call for DRS turned down by the third umpire as the replay had already been up on the big screen. It also came after 17 seconds — two more than is permitted by DRS regulations.

Fox Cricket commentators suggested the Indians had called for the DRS after seeing the replay on the big screen.

“Was that after seeing a replay though? Surely the 15 seconds was up,” Shan Warne said.

“I reckon he saw the replay on the big screen.

“I reckon the replay came up and that’s when Virat reviewed it.”

“You’ve referred it? It was on the big screen. They’ve referred it off the big screen.” Mark Waugh said.

Washington Sundar has taken both wickets so far, removing Finch for a duck and Steve Smith for 24. Smith failed to cash in on a huge life, with KL Rahul missing a simple stumping on 22.

Pat Cummins wasn’t doing much resting in the hours before the third T20 as he hit the SCG nets to roll the arm over.

The star quick has been rested from Australia’s three-match T20 series against India, which it lost in straight sets after an 11-run thriller on Sunday night.

Cummins was sorely missed in that match with Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc both late withdrawals due to soreness and a family emergency respectively.

That left an understrength Australia powerless to stop Virat Kohli and, chiefly, Hardik Pandya from chasing down 194 runs despite India needing 75 runs off just 38 balls at one stage.

Speaking on Fox Cricket before the third T20, Shane Warne criticised Australia’s decision to rest players after winning the ODI series in straight sets.

“To me they haven’t been ruthless enough,” Warne said. “They should have gone ruthless and played their full side all the way through as much as they can.

“Since that moment they decided to rest players they lost all three (matches).

“India have been hungry, they want to play and they weren’t happy about the one-day series.”
