India vs Australia 3rd T20: As it happened: Raina, Kohli power India to 3-0 series sweep

India are now the NO. 1 team in the world in the ICC T20 rankings! Australia have slipped down to 8th. India were in the 7th position prior to this series. 

And the Indian team lifts the KFC T20 series trophy! Smiles all around. 

Dhoni credits the bowlers for the turnaround.  

Shane Watson gets the player of the match for his terriffic hundred, a wicket and a catch.

Virat Kohli is the player of the series! What a player. 

5:20: India have won a scintillating game of cricket here at the Sydney Cricket Ground. They have completed a whitewash here against Australia in the T20 series. It was a mountainous run chase.

Suresh Raina played a match-winning knock of 49 runs from just 25 balls. He kept his nerves, kept his calm and smashed one over that cover point fielder for a boundary. Boyce will be thinking that he could have had Raina when he just came out to bat but Bancroft missed it. Raina has done that so many times in the past for Chennai Super Kings and for India as well.

Yuvraj Singh was struggling right from the start of this innings. When he took the single off the last ball of the 19th over, everybody might have thought this game is well and truly over for India. But how crucial were those hits from Yuvraj! That brought India back into the game right away. Vintage Yuvraj Singh that was.

None of the Australian bowlers other than Boyce could make an impact on this game. Tremendous shot playing from all the Indian batsmen.

Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan got India off to a flier and that helped the rest of the batsmen to finish things off in style.
