Indian bowlers dominate Aussie batsmen in Ranchi — Twitter Reactions

Australia will have to win Tuesday's match in Guwahati to avoid another series loss, after a deflating 4-1 drubbing in the one-day internationals.

Australia could only score 118/8 in 18.4 overs when rain interrupted the play.

Smith's absence will be a big blow to the visiting Australian team, who are looking for a turnaround after being crushed in the recently-concluded ODI series 4-1.

A combined effort from Indian bowlers saw them restrict Australia to 118 for eight and later chased down the revised target of 48 runs from six overs in the rain hit first Twenty20 global in Ranchi.

Opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan, who missed the one-day worldwide series against the same opponents to be with his ailing wife, remained unbeaten on 15 off 12 deliveries.

Aaron Finch and Maxwell then took control and the former particularly looked in impressive touch, carrying on in the same vein as his ODI showings. India would be bolstered by the return of Shikhar Dhawan who was in menacing form prior to his break from the national setup.

"It was unfortunate for Dhawan to miss out on so many games but he is back and even this innings of 15 will give him confidence". The omen was not good for the visitors as captain Davide Warner was dismissed by Bhuvneshwar in his first over with eight runs on the board, which the captain scored. The bowlers did an okay job. The game can get tricky with a small chase like that. It's been a combined effort from the players. "There are no concerns there and all the guys have done everything they need to do to be able to be ready to go", he added. The right-handed batsman swatted a poor delivery from the wrist-spinner straight into the hands of Jasprit Bumrah at short mid-wicket. The Chinaman bowler itched it right to rattle Henriques' stumps as Australia were reduced to 87/4. "The ball will come on slowly towards the end".

Kuldeep Yadav was declared Man of the Match for his excellent and economical bowling.

"The first couple of balls, I saw what he was doing, later on I set him up for the sweep shot". I think the pitch is exactly like how it looked in the Test match.
