India vs Australia 2020 Highlights, 1st T20I Match at Canberra, Full Cricket Score: Natarajan, Chahal guide visitors to 11-run win

17:50 (IST)

That's all for today. At one point, it looked Australia will easily chase the target of 162 but Indian bowlers, especially Yuzvendra Chahal and T Natarajan pulled off fantastic recovery for their team. India take 1-0 lead in the series with two more matches to play. 

We will be back again for the second T20I, till then, have a good time. 

17:41 (IST)

Virat Kohli: "Concussion replacements are a strange thing. Today, it worked for us. Yuzi showed character to squeeze the opponents. In Australia, you need to play hard and show intensity till the end. Chahal got us back in the game. Hardik's catch was a game changer as well."

17:39 (IST)

Aaron Finch, Australia captain: Their doctor had ruled Jadeja out due to concussion. We probably leaked too may runs at the death. Then while chasing, we didn't hit too many boundaries in the 6-over period.

17:37 (IST)

Yuzvendra Chahal is the Man of the Match

"It's a great feeling. I have learnt from my ODI mistakes. The way Zampa bowled, I tried to do the same as well. It was a little harder to score in the first innings. 150-160 is a good score on this wicket. I bowled according to my plans."

17:30 (IST)

After 20 overs,Australia 150/7 ( Sean Abbott 12 , Mitchell Swepson 12)

India take 1-0 lead in the T20I series. Indian bowlers and Ravindra Jadeja deserves all the credit for their fantastic performance. Australia got off to a great start in the chase but wickets kept tumbling once Finch got out. It will be interesting to listen to what the Aussie skipper says about India's concussion substitution, Chahal certainly turned it around for his team with his spell.   

17:26 (IST)
four

Four off the final ball but the game is done. India win the match 11 runs. 

17:26 (IST)

Swepson clears the long-off boundary but it's too late. 

17:22 (IST)

Abbott targets the mid-wicket boundary and he clears it. Much-needed one for the Aussies.

17:19 (IST)

After 18 overs,Australia 127/6 ( Sean Abbott 1 , Mitchell Starc 1)

Another successful over for India. Moises Henriques could've turned the game around but Deepak Chahar ensures the Aussie is back into the pavilion. Just five runs from this over. Australia need 35 in 12 balls. Starc and Sean Abbott need to pull off something special here.

India vs Australia 2020, Live Cricket Score, 1st T20I Today’s Match: India take 1-0 lead in the T20I series. Indian bowlers and Ravindra Jadeja deserves all the credit for their fantastic performance. Australia got off to a great start in the chase but wickets kept tumbling once Finch got out. It will be interesting to listen to what the Aussie skipper says about India's concussion substitution, Chahal certainly turned it around for his team with his spell.

Preview: Virat Kohli-led India may have kicked off their tour Down Under by conceding the ODI series to Australia recently, but more importantly, they are coming fresh off a 13-run win in the third ODI, a victory that must have surely boosted the team’s confidence heading to the T20I series.

With next year’s ICC T20 World Cup in mind, the three-match T20I series, starting with the first one on Friday, will once again give both the teams an opportunity to reassess their preparations.

While Australia’s previous T20I series ended in a 1-2 defeat at the hands of England in September, this will be India’s first assignment in the shortest format since early this year in January, when they thumped New Zealand 5-0 during their tour to Kiwiland.

And this time, the visitors’ T20I squad witnesses a fresh face- Left-arm pacer T Natarajan. The Tamil Nadu cricketer caught the eye of selectors in the IPL that concluded in November, where he picked 16 wickets representing Sunrisers Hyderabad.

On Wednesday, he made his international debut in the third ODI against the Aussies, finishing with two wickets after removing Marnus Labuschagne and Ashton Agar during the chase.

Natarajan’s inclusion adds more balance to the bowling lineup, with the likes of Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami and Washington Sundar.

In terms of the batting department, KL Rahul will in all probabilities revert back to the opening slot with Shikhar Dhawan, after having batted at number five in the ODIs.

Skipper Virat Kohli, too seems to have found his rhythm back after scores of 89 and 63 in the second and third one-dayers, will look to maintain that momentum heading into the shortest format. Kohli aggregated 466 runs in the IPL as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) endured another roller-coaster campaign, where they made the playoffs.

Shreyas Iyer’s presence in the middle-order adds batting solidity, while Sanju Samson will also fight for a place in the playing eleven.

Australia, on the other hand, have injury concerns. David Warner was ruled out of the remainder of the limited-overs leg after suffering a groin injury during the second ODI, while out-of-form pacer Mitchell Starc sustained a back and rib niggle that kept him out of the final one-dayer.

Left-handed batsman D ‘Arcy Short has been named as Warner’s replacement in an otherwise similar squad.

That brings us to the end of our coverage of the third day of the decisive third Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with Australia clearly on top and favourites to go 2-1 up with a lead just shy of the 200-mark.

India vs Australia Highlights, 3rd Test at SCG, Day 2, Full Cricket Score: Pujara, Rahane guide visitors to 96/2 at stumps

A very long day comes to an end. India bowled well to curtail Aussies to 338. Great hundred by Steve Smith before Jadeja ran him out. He also took four wickets, two with yorkers (yes you read it right). He was a livewire in the field and produced dividends with the ball. Rohit and Gill gave India a solid base. Both back to the hut now. Gill did score his maiden fifty. Rahane and Pujara in the middle got better with time spent on the pitch. Rahane will face the first ball tomorrow. We will see you again at 3.30 am IST tomorrow. Remember the Day 3 begins at 4.30, so do Day 4 and 5 to make up for overs lost due to rain on Day 1. See you tomorrow, take care and good bye.
