Game 2 on Sunday drew 586,000 -the most-watched ODI game ever on STV.
Game 3 on Wednesday averaged 435,000.

Women’s cricket is also up, with a combined audience of 131,000, up +24% on the 2019 Final.
Steve Crawley, Executive Director FOX Sports, said: “How good’s the cricket? The women are the best in the world and now Australia’s ODI men’s team is performing better than we’ve seen in modern times against top-rated India and Virat Kohli – it doesn’t get any better.
“Beginning the summer with the white ball has proven to be a hugely successful formula for Cricket Australia.”
FOX Cricket screens three T20’s from December 4 and the Australia A v India day-night Tour match on December 11, before the first Test on December 17.
