Rain intervenes after India run through middle order

Rain intervenes after India run through middle order

Indian cricket team has a hundred per cent record in T20Is against Australia while playing at home.

But with eight balls remaining, rain playedspoilsport and the umpires chose to end the innings.

All-rounders Dan Christian and Moises Henriques have joined the squad for the T20 series. Not long after emerged the signs that Australia were in for a long, hard grind as they played out 13 dots in the first five overs.

Motivated by the move, Hardik Pandya bowled Travis Head, who managed to contribute just nine runs while facing out-and-out Indian bowling attack.

Kuldeep also dismissed Moises Henriques (8) to finish with 2-16 from four overs, as he and fellow spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (1-23) put the skids under Australia's progress.

Finch's cameo was ended by some attractive bowling from Yadav after the Aussie opener was clean bowled attempting to sweep a full and quicker delivery for a 30-ball 42. 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.

Coming to Australia, a lot will depend on in-form opening duo of David Warner, who will be captaining the side in Smith's absence, and Aaron Finch.

With Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell on the crease, Australia were seen struggling at 8/1 in the first over.

India's captain Virat Kohli (L) is watched by Australia's wicketkeeper Tim Paine as he plays a shot during the first Twenty 20 cricket match between India and Australia at The JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi, India, October 7, 2017.

"There's a bit of weather around, so we would like to know where we are placed". The T20 series is starting today in Ranchi. Team Australia has placed on the upper rank in T20 than India considering ICC ranking. Apart from one or two instances, the bowlers and fielders displayed brilliant work to restrict Australia. For India, Axar Patel and Ajinkya Rahane sat out and they were replaced by Kuldeep Yadav and Shikhar Dhawan.
