India in seventh heaven as Australia crumble in Ranchi

Jason Behrendorff is in line to make his debut for Australia in the Twenty20 International series against India and he will be hoping to reverse the team’s poor record against India

Australia's captain Steve Smith is expected to be fit for the Ashes despite returning home from the tour of India with a shoulder problem. In a match that was cut short due to rains, India went on to win by 9 wickets by the DLS method.

The JSCA International Stadium Complex will be the setting when India and Australia face off in the first of three T20 matches. It was far from the picture David Warner, Australia's stand-in captain, had pictured when he was asked to bat and expressed his inclination to do the same. "The beginning is important, and one window here and there and Australia might pounce", he added. However, Yuzvendra Chahal continued the trend of outfoxing Maxwell in the ongoing series. But it was left-arm wrist spinner Yadav who set up India's 1-0 lead in the three-match series as he returned figures of 2-16 to restrict Australia to 118-8 in 18.4 overs when rain stopped play for about two hours.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bowl first against Australia in the first T20 global at the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi on Saturday.

When India's T20I squad for the series against Australia was announced, Ashish Nehra's name created the greatest buzz.

He departed to rejoin Mourinho under the pristine spotlights of Real Madrid to add a La Liga title to his name in 2012. Prosecutors had argued for a 12-month sentence and a larger fine of €300,000.

India's batting is bolstered by Shikhar Dhawan's comeback and it is certain that he will open the innings alongside man-in-form Rohit Sharma.

Perhaps the only passage of play that India wouldn't look back on too fondly was the 15 over, sent down by Chahal, which saw two shelled catches and a rare stumping chance fluffed by MS Dhoni.

The rise of Hardik Pandya, the guile of the two wrist spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have made life hard for Australia in the one-day series.

Australia were without their regular captain Steven Smith, who had to fly back home after injuring his shoulder. The pace bowler gave away just 17 runs in his three overs, as his precise and accurate deliveries got the better of Tim Paine and Nathan Coulter-Nile. The likes of Travis Head, Moises Henriques and Daniel Christian failed to make any kind of difference to the Australian total.
