22:40 (IST)

That brings us to the end of the first T20I between India and Australia at Vizag, and what a cracker of a contest it turned it to be in the end. It all seemed over when Maxwell and Short helped Australia reach 89/2 at one stage, needing 38 to win from more than six overs. Suddenly, a spirited performance from the Indian attack saw them pulling the game back in their favour, and a terrific penultimate over from Bumrah made the hosts favouries to pull off a cliffhanger. Credit to Cummins and Richardson for maintaining calm, and guiding their side home in the end. 

The action now heads to Bengaluru, where the KSCA will be experimenting with new technology that promises to improve the aesthetic look of the outfield. Australia will reach the Karnataka capital pumped up, knowing that they can't lose the series from hereon. India, given their quality, will look to bounce back from this loss and give their fans something to cheer about before heading into the one-dayers. 

For now, it's time for us to bid you all good night! 

22:34 (IST)

Nathan Coulter-Nile is Player of the Match for taking 3 wickets in the match

Coulter-Nile: We bowled very well. It was not coming out on the bat. We tried to dig in. Nice to have some cricket behind us with BBL back home. Hopefully we can win another one and win the series. 

22:32 (IST)

Aaron Finch, Australia captain: I think the wicket got a bit slower and slower. Great to get a win. I thought they dragged their length back really well. We managed to get a bit of a reverse. Guys that are getting more and more experience. When you have six or seven guys to pick more, strong position to be in. Maxie's played a hell of an innings on a wicket that was tough. 

22:31 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: In the first innings, we are not up to the mark. Till about 15th over, the wicket played well but we did not bat well. In low scoring games, you are always goings for runs. Bumrah can do wonders with the ball. Mayank  bowled well in the middle overs.

We want to give game time to Rahul. He is a quality player. He played good shots. He played really good knock. 150 would have been winning score. Australia deserved to win. They played better than us.

Glenn Maxwell: Just spend a bit of time in the middle. Had a good partnership with Darcy. Credit to the way the Indians fought back in the middle overs. Hopefully I can keep doing better for them (team management). I felt like I played him quite well towards the end (Chahal).

India played the key moments very well in the later stages of the match except that final over by Umesh Yadav. He did not handle the pressure situation well. giving away easy runs. Australia stole the match by being alert and aware of the needs of the situation. India goofed up big time in the last over and hence lost off the last ball of the match. Good fightback but poor finish

After 20 overs,Australia 127/7 ( Pat Cummins 7 , Jhye Richardson 7)

Umesh hasn't done his limited-overs credentials any good with a disappointing final over, as Australia reach home off the very last ball of the match! The turning point was the attempted wide yorker off the penultimate delivery that was driven through cover for a boundary, before some good running between the wickets helped them collect the remaining two runs off the last ball. Heartbreak for the Indians, especially after the tremendous turnaround in their bowling performance in the second half of the innings. 

For now, Australia are 1-0 up in the series!

Ball 6: TWO! AUSTRALIA STEAL A VICTORY FROM OUT OF NOWHERE! AUS 127/7, win by three wickets!

Preview, 1st T20I: Cementing spots in their World Cup squad will top the agenda for Indians and Australians alike when their limited-over series starts with the first Twenty20 in Visakhapatnam on Sunday.

Virat Kohli returns to lead the hosts in their final rubber before this year’s 50-over showpiece with two T20s followed by a five-match one day international series.

While India will be busy with the annual Indian Premier League T20 tournament before heading to the World Cup in England, the defending 50-over world champions will have another opportunity to hone their skills against Pakistan next month.

For Kohli, who led India to their first test series victory in Australia but skipped the second half of the New Zealand tour, the series will be the last chance to identify the batsman to fill a middle order spot in an otherwise settled side.

There is not much ambiguity in their pace bowling options while the successful spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav are set to travel to England, where the twice champions begin their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5.

Kuldeep has, however, been rested for the T20 leg against Australia while all-rounder Hardik Panya, a key cog in India’s scheme of things at the World Cup, has been ruled out of the entire series with lower back stiffness.

That has presented an opportunity for spin bowling all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja to make a final audition after being initially overlooked.

The touring side are yet to nail down captain Aaron Finch’s partner at the top of the batting order, even if it is a spot that David Warner is likely to fill at the World Cup once his ball-tampering ban expires.

They have multiple options in vice captain Alex Carey, D’Arcy Short and Usman Khawaja and a good performance in the shortest format would do a player’s hopes of opening in the one-day side no harm.

Australia’s players have arrived in India after their involvement in the Big Bash League and Carey, who keeps wickets for Australia, believes that could be an advantage.

“The guys have had their Big Bash campaign just finished and they’re in T20 mode so we’ll hit the two T20s and then get stuck into the five one-dayers,” Carey told reporters ahead of the first T20.

“The confidence is up for all the players and we’re really excited now to get playing, get stuck into the Indians.”
