Australia vs Sri Lanka (AUS vs SL) 3rd T20 Live Cricket Score Streaming Online: After defeats in the first two games, visitors Sri Lanka are playing to avoid a series sweep, in the third and final T20I at the MCG today. Sri Lanka’s batting failed for the second time in the series, this time while setting a target, in Brisbane.

Australia, on the other hand, have the opportunity to register their second clean sweep in a three-match T20I series. Having already won the series, Aaron Finch might well be tempted to test the bench strength by bringing in Sean Abbott and Ben McDermott.

SIX!

Pat Cummins into the attack. Four singles from the first five deliveries as Sri Lankan batsmen focus on rotating the strike. This is something they have struggled to do in this T20I series.
