AUS vs IND Match Analysis and Review
AUS vs IND, The 1st T20I was won by India with 11 runs. The substitute player Yuzvendra Chahal made it difficult for Australia to chase the target of 161. The back-to-back wickets were taken by Yuzvendra Chahal and Thangarasu Natarajan lead India to their victory.
Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has ruled out if the remaining two matches of the series due to a concussion sustained after the ball hit him. Now, Indian pacer Shardul Thakur will take the place of the Ravindra Jadeja in the remaining two matches of the series.
Australia was doing great till 72 by 1, but the loss of Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell was a huge blow to the team. Down the order the power-hitting require was very poor, and that lead the Australian team to defeat in the 1st T20I of the series.
The Australian team has another blow coming their way as the Australian skipper is awaiting a scans report on his hip or glute.
