  • 5.3

    FOUR! Daniel Christian to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Virat Kohli seals victory for his side with a muscular blow over mid off.

    Australia limped to 118/8 after 18.4 overs before a lengthy rain delay. The adjusted target of 48 in six overs was never going to favour the visitors. Shikhar Dhawan and Kohli judged the chase well and they got home with three balls to spare.

    Earlier, India's bowlers, especially Kuldeep Yadav (2-16) and Jasprit Bumrah (2-17) strangled the Australian innings on a slow and low surface. Once Aaron Finch departed after a strong 42, they were never able to threaten a large total. Join us for the second T20I on Wednesday.
