India had bagged the series 2-0 and was looking to whitewash Aussies in their own backyard in T20Is thereby becoming the first team to do so. On a quintessential flat Sydney pitch, Australia batted first and put up a competitive 197/5 with Watson smashing a 67-ball 124.198 might have been a daunting total to chase for other teams but not for team India.

Right from the start, India went about the run chase in a clinical manner. Dhawan got off to a flier (26 off 9) and Rohit (52 of 38) and Virat (50 off 36) anchored the run chase. When 17 were needed off last over, Raina and Yuvi finished things off in a style. India completed a whitewash after 4-1 loss in ODI series.

Match Summary: Australia 197/5 (Watson 124*, Head 26; Yuvraj 1/19) lost to India 200/3 (Rohit 52, Virat 50; Boyce 2/28) by 7 wickets.
