Australian skipper Shane Watson scored his 11th half-century in T20Is during the third and final Twenty20 International (T20I) between India and Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Sunday. His fifty came off 37 deliveries including seven boundaries and a six, along with a strike rate of 136.58.

Currently, Australia are 89 for the loss of three wickets in 11 overs with opener Shane Watson on 53 and Travis Head on six. FULL SCORECARD: India vs Australia, 3rd T20I at Sydney
