In the series between these two sides, Australia currently leads 1-0.
When India came to the first T20I in Mohali, after beating Australia first, India lost skipper Rohit Sharma (11) and Virat Kohli (2) for cheap scores. As a result, Men in Blue struggled 35/2. KL Rahul (55) and Suryakumar Yadav (46) then stabilized the innings with a score of 68 runs. Then Hardik Pandya played a brilliant 71* knockout from just 30 balls with seven fours and five sixes to end the innings at 208/6.
Pacers Nathan Ellis (3/30) and Josh Hazlewood (2/39) were the most successful Australian bowlers.
In the chase of 209, openers Aaron Finch (22) and Cameron Green made a quickfire 39-run tie to give Australia a solid start. Green played some really impressive strokes and pulled off a 70-run tie with Steve Smith (35). Green was fired for an impressive 61 from 30 balls.
Hereafter, Men in Blue made a comeback into the game, taking wickets from Smith, Glenn Maxwell (1) and Josh Inglis (17) within a space of just 36 runs.
But wicketkeeper-batter Matthew Wade (45*) and debutant Tim David (18) stitched a 62-run tie to help the Aussies win the game by four wickets, ending the innings at 211/6.
Cameron Green was named ‘Man of the Match’ for his 61 and 1/46.
The second T20I match will take place on Friday in Nagpur at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium.
