The rise of all-rounder Hardik Pandya and the guile of the wrist spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have made life hard for Australia in the one-day series.
Chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav took the wicket of the 30-year-old batsman for 42 runs.
Australian captain David Warner: We will try and be better next game.
Spinner Kuldeep Yadav led an inspired bowling effort to help India beat Australia by nine wickets in the rain-shortened first Twenty20 worldwide in Ranchi on Saturday. Indian fielding also has to be complimented for being discipline and India also clean bowled 6 batsmen of the visiting team.
Left-arm wrist spinner Yadav then dismissed the unsafe Finch for 42 and also all-rounder Moises Henriques, earning excellent figures of 2-16 off his four overs.
The man to go back to the hut after being dismissed was Rohit Sharma who made 11 of 7 balls. Bhuvi, Chahal and Hardik settled for a wicket each. Australia's slide allowed Pandya to bounce back with a much-improved second spell of 2-0-10-1.
"There's a bit of weather around, so we would like to know where we are placed".
Update: India win by 9 wickets (DLS Method) Kohli lofts the drive past the cover fielder and the India win the match with 3 balls to spare. Honoured to be the Australian captain.
"T20 is a format where you can't take any team for granted, let alone Australia". Apart from one or two instances, the bowlers and fielders displayed brilliant work to restrict Australia. For India, Axar Patel and Ajinkya Rahane sat out and they were replaced by Kuldeep Yadav and Shikhar Dhawan.
Australia captain Steve Smith is likely to miss the first of the three-match T20I series, starting Saturday, October 7 in Ranchi with a shoulder injury.
"I think David Warner and Aaron Finch can be unsafe for India in the T20 series".
