Twitter Reactions: India continue their clinical run in the first T20I

David Warner is captaining the Australian team for the match as Steve Smith is out of the game with a shoulder injury. In a match that was cut short due to rains, India went on to win by 9 wickets by the DLS method. As the India captain had hit consecutive four half-centuries in the last four matches against Australia. Aaron Finch, however, continued to bat brilliantly while Glenn Maxwell tried to settle himself in, coming out at No.3. Australia were reduced from 76/2 to 118/8 before rain interrupted play.

Series: The last time Australia played at the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi was almost seven months ago, the third match of a hotly-contested four-Test series against India which ended 3-1 in India's favour.

The Australians lost their five-match one-day series against India 4-1 and started a three-match Twenty20 series later Saturday.

Paceman Jason Behrendorff is likely to make his long-awaited worldwide debut, while Andrew Tye, after replacing Pat Cummins (rested), is among four quicks in the squad. Meanwhile, India's T20I squad also sees the return of veteran pacer Ashish Nehra and Dinesh Karthik apart from the omission of Ajinkya Rahane.

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. Meanwhile, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel will take care of spin-bowling department. Skipper Kohli, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya are expected to be a part of the middle order. He followed it up with a nonchalantly flicked six over long leg off Nathan Coulter-Nile, but the bowler swung one past a flick next ball and clattered his stumps.

Allrounders Dan Christian and Moises Henriques have also flown in for the T20 series. Adam Zampa, meanwhile, is the only specialist spinner in their side. The rise of Hardik Pandya, the guile of the wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal had made life hard for Australia in the one-day series.
