Twitter Reactions: Indian bowlers dominate Aussie batsmen in Ranchi

Twitter Reactions: Indian bowlers dominate Aussie batsmen in Ranchi

India won the toss and made a decision to bowl first with skipper Virat Kohli citing the weather factor as the reason behind it.

Coming out to chase a revised target of 48 runs in six overs, India, quite comfortably reached home with nine wickets in hand.

The skipper is also happy that Shikhar Dhawan is back after a short break due to his wife's illness.

Sending Pat Cummins back home to prepare for the critical Ashes series perhaps inadvertently points towards the fact that the T20I series is more about merely returning the favour of India's limited overs tour of Australia, which took place in January previous year. The hosts won the five-match One-day worldwide series with a 4-1 win to reclaim the number one spot. Picking specialist players for formats, picking mystery bowlers (Kuldeep), giving them confidence.

Kohli won the toss and with the expectation of rain later, opted to field against the tourists, who had lost the five-match ODI series 4-1. Was looking to bat first anyway. The omen was not good for the visitors as captain Davide Warner was dismissed by Bhuvneshwar in his first over with eight runs on the board, which the captain scored.

Daniel Christian was run out by Indian captain Virat Kohli on the first delivery of the 19th over.

Not much going Australia's way at the moment.

He added: "It's great that we've got the flexibility and there's a number of guys who could do it". You need to be able to execute yorkers and slower balls and you need the skill. Wrist spinners can turn the game on its head.

Kuldeep was happy with his maiden Man of the Match award. The only Australia batsman to display any kind of fluency, Finch built up steam with smart clips, gentle dabs, the occasional chip, and when the bowlers erred in length, brutal cuts and forceful drives. First couple of balls I saw what he (Finch) was trying to do and set him up with an overpitched ball. I think the pitch is exactly like how it looked in the Test match.
