India v/s Australia 1st T20

Jason Behrendorff

Australia will have to win Tuesday's match in Guwahati to avoid another series loss, after a deflating 4-1 drubbing in the one-day internationals. "So, I think we can easily beat Australia 3-nil in our own backyard", Sehwag said on India TV's "Cricket Ki Baat" show from Ranchi. The Karnataka batsman's return from a shoulder injury has not gone to plan as he did not get a chance in the ODI series.

While India, who are now ranked fifth in ICC World T20 rankings, are favourites to win the three-match series starting at the JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi, Australia are dealt with a big blow as Steve Smith has returned to homeland after sustaining an injury.

The star batsman scored 142 runs in the five ODIs with his team going down 4-1 to slip to third in the rankings behind South Africa and top-ranked India.

However, having reached 76-2 in the 10th over, the visitors struggled to up the ante on a slow, low pitch once opener Finch was bowled by Kuldeep Yadav for 42.

The T20I series consists of three matches where the first match has started in 7th October, 2017 at JSCA International Stadium Complex, which is situated in Ranchi, India.

"I think David Warner and Aaron Finch can be risky for India in the T20 series". It is time for three-match T20I series with the first game taking place in Ranchi. "They can give runs in one game, but they will always hit back", Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

India have recalled veteran left-arm pacer Ashish Nehra as he joins Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah in the pace-bowling department. The rise of Hardik Pandya, the guile of the wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal had made life hard for Australia in the one-day series.

Paceman Jason Behrendorff is likely to make his long-awaited worldwide debut, while Andrew Tye, who replaced Pat Cummins (rested), is among four quicks in the squad. 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.
