Smith withdrawn from India T20Is

1st T20I India's biggest win over Australia by wickets

Australia got off to a nightmarish start, losing stand-in-captain David Warner in the first over. Toss results are out and Indian skipper Virat Kohli has opted to bowl first.

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. "We want to get better every game", said pacer Jasprit Bumrah ahead of the opening match.

After embarrassing themselves in 5 match One Day International series against India, Steve Smith's boys were ready to challenge Virat Kohli's boys in three match T 20 international. The match was being played at Ranchi, which is MS Dhoni's home ground.

Destructive Aaron Finch was set to take the game away from India with his thunderous batting but Kuldeep Yadav's magic restricted the batsman from scoring big as he was departed for 42 runs off 30 balls.

Australia meanwhile recalled their T20I specialists Moises Henriques, Daniel Christian, Andrew Tye and Glenn Maxwell. Yadav finished with figures of 2/16 in 4 overs, well supported by Jasprit Bumrah's (2/17 in 3 overs) toe crushing yorkers.

Just how low the surface played was seen in the fact that six of the eight wickets Australia lost were bowled; two of them chopping on.

Smith hurt his right shoulder diving in the field during the fifth and final one-day global against India at Nagpur on Sunday, adding injury to the insult of a 4-1 series loss for the visitors.
