India vs Australia T20 | Last Ball Thriller

Australia defeated India by three wickets in the opening T20I played in Visakhapatnam on Sunday. Needing two off the final ball, Australia had Pat Cummins to thank for getting them across the line.

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. Earlier, India stuttered to 126/7 in 20 overs in the first T20 International against Australia. KL Rahul was the top-scorer for India with 50 off 36 balls.

MS Dhoni remained unbeaten till the end as he managed 29 runs from 37 balls. Captain Virat Kohli who made his comeback after a brief break from the game, looked good until he got out for 24 runs. Nathan Coulter-Nile was the pick of the bowlers for Australia, taking three wickets for just 26 runs.

The match was literally nerve cracking till last ball. We have almost made it but in T20’s nothing can be said till the last ball. Well today India was quite weak today in batting department, but in the bowling and fielding department they were quite phenomenal. Well it’s not their day today.

Hope India made a comeback in the next match. Bleed Blue!
