Australia wins by five wickets to take a 1-0 series lead.
Thanks to outstanding efforts from Rahul, Pandya, and Yadav against Australia in a T20I, India scored their best ever total. Australia started off well in response. Wade’s game-winning innings helped Australia cross the finish line after Green stole the show in the first half of the innings.
The objectives were very evident from the way Aaron Finch opened the chase (with a six). The throng was only quiet by the youthful Cameron Green’s blinder. He played a superb 61 run innings off just 30 balls, boy. Australia did go off course after losing his wicket as the middle order failed to make an impression, but that is when the deep batting lineup for the Aussies came into action. They chased the enormous score in style thanks to Matthew Wade’s expertise and Tim David’s appearance. Not to mention Smith’s cameo, which enabled Aussie to maintain the requisite run rate. Australia did a fantastic chase, and they will be thrilled with how the series has started.
