India in seventh heaven as Australia crumble in Ranchi

India started off on a good note as pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar sent back skipper David Warner (8) in the first over itself. Shikhar Dhawan and Ashish Nehra are back in the team while the rest of the XI will remain same as in the ODI series.

Chasing 48 in six overs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series, the hosts reached their target with three deliveries to spare after the loss of Rohit Sharma for 11.

India rode on opener Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Virat Kohli's brilliant knock to score 49/1 (D/L method) against Australia in the rain-marred match to register a nine wicket victory in the first Twenty20 International (T20I) cricket match at the JSCA International Stadium Complex here on Saturday.

Australia will miss captain Steve Smith after he was ruled out of the upcoming three-match T20I series against India due to shoulder injury.

Indian bowlers performed in unison as Australia were restricted to a meagre 118 for 8 when rain stopped play after 18.4 overs.

The 28-year-old batsman's injury is a new blow to Australia as they lost the one-day series in India and are preparing for a key Ashes series against England in two months.

Complicated 'infotainment' vehicle increasing risk of road deaths
According to AAA, looking away from the road for even two seconds doubles the likelihood of a crash. A new study now shows that vehicles themselves can be a distraction.

The fans can follow the live coverage of India vs Australia T20 match on HotStar official website as well as HotStar mobile app.

Australia: David Warner (capt), Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Dan Christian, Tim Paine (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa, Jason Behrendorff.

From there on, India took complete control of the game with Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah (2-17) among the wickets.

All of Indian five bowlers picked wickets in the innings.

On the other hand, India will look to continue their dominance after a thumping win over Australia in the ODI series. The decision to persist with wrist spinners like Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal has proved to be beneficial for the team since the start of the Sri Lanka series.
