India vs Australia 1st T20I Highlights: Last Ball Thriller

Australia defeated India by three wickets in the last ball thriller of the opening T20I played in Visakhapatnam on Sunday.

Needing 14 runs to win in the last over, it was India’s game to lose as Umesh Yadav was hit for two boundaries in the last over.

Jasprit Bumrah’s heroics in the penultimate over went in vain as he gave away just two runs and picked two wickets to bring India back in the match. Glenn Maxwell top-scored for Australia with 56 runs off 43 balls. His innings included six fours and two sixes.

India vs Australia 1st T20I Highlights: Last Ball Thriller

India are set to host Australia for a limited overs series with the first Twenty20 International (T20I) set to be played in Visakhapatnam on Sunday.

The T20I series will be followed by a five-match ODI series from March 2. One of the favourites to lift the World Cup, the home series against the visiting Australia will be India’s final assignment before the Cricket World Cup that begins on May 30.

Indian Skipper Virat Kohli and Striker bowler Jasprit Bumrah make a comeback in this series and will be featuring in both the T20I and ODI series.

KL Rahul and wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who was rested from the New Zealand tour, also make a comeback.

MS Dhoni will continue to keep wickets and will be India’s dependable batsman in the middle-order. With Hardik Pandya out injured, it will be a great opportunity for Vijay Shankar to strenghthen his case while Pant will also look to make the most of the chances he gets.

In bowling, Bumrah will be ably supported by Umesh Yadav and Siddharth Kaul in the pace department. Whereas, Yuzvendra Chahal will be India’s go-to man in the spin department.

Krunal Pandya, has been awarded another chance for his impressive performance in New Zealand. Uncapped spinner Mayank Markande has also been included in the T20 squad. Markande shone with the ball for Mumbai Indians in the previous season.

India vs Australia 1st T20I Highlights: Last Ball Thriller

When: India vs Australia, 1st T20I, 7 PM Local time

Where: Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam

What to expect: Hot conditions with little chance of rain and a pitch with runs in it.

Team News:

India: Mayank Markande and Siddarth Kaul have been called up to the squad, but look unlikely to break into the starting XI. India’s main concern will be their middle order. Pant and Rahul both batted ahead of Dinesh Karthik in the nets, and if that’s an indication then India could go in with the duo. 

Expected Playing 11-

Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), KL Rahul/Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Vijay Shankar, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

Australia: Aaron Finch said they are still unsure of their team ahead of the opener, opting to wait until the day of the match to decide the final XI. They do have a number of options at the top of the order and will have to work out who to partner Finch with as an opener. Shaun Marsh hasn’t travelled with the team as he is staying back for the birth of his child.

Expected Playing 11-

Aaron Finch( c), Alex Carey, Usman Khawaja, D’Arcy Short, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Peter Handscomb, Jason Behrendorff, Adam Zampa
