Kia ora and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the Blackcaps' third and final T20 showdown with Australia at Eden Park.

The hosts will be playing for little more than pride on Sunday, two days after they were crushed in the second contest at the same venue to seal the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy.

Devon Conway has been ruled out of the third match with a thumb injury, bringing Tim Seifert into the fray. Rachin Ravindra is a gametime decision, after missing the second match with knee soreness.

Unfortunately, the weather forecast in Auckland is looking dire. Rain set in early Sunday but has abated and the covers are off - for now.

We'll have all of the action for you from 1pm.
