India win the 1st T20I by a margin of 11 runs! After managing to put up a total of 161 in 20 overs India put up an amazing show with the ball and get the lead 1-0 up.
India top performers in 2nd innings:
Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out for the second innings and Yuzvendra Chahal was bought in as his concussion substitute. He bowled his 4 overs and claimed 3 wickets conceding just 25 runs. This became a controversial debate as the cricket rules do not allow a concussion substitute to bowl in the same game.
T. Na Tara Jan claimed 3 wickets and deepak Chahar got one to his name.
Captain of the Australian team Aron Finch top scored for his side with 35 off 26. D’arcy Short scored 34 runs off 38.
India did manage to win the game by 11 runs but they did make a couple blunders during the game that could’ve cost them the lead. Virat Kohli dropped a catch. India midfielded and an over throw caused the ball to race to the boundary which gave Australia 5 runs on a single delivery.
