Australia captain Steve Smith to miss India T20s through injury

Virat Kohli geared up as India look to fulfil Mission 111

David Warner who led Sunrisers Hyderabad to an IPL title a year ago will lead the team in Smith's absence.

Kuldeep Yadav picked two big wickets.

Dhawan (15 not out) and Kohli (22 not out) helped India cross the line with three balls to spare.

Due to rain, India's target was set at 48 runs in six overs.

The DLS method was required after Australia's innings was cut short by bad weather, the tourists having lurched to 118-8 by the time rain stopped play during the 19th over.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bowl first against Australia in the first T20 worldwide at the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi on Saturday.

The hosts, who recently clinched the one-day series against the Steve Smith-led side 4-1, made two changes from their last ODI in Nagpur on Sunday.

The paramilitary force's chief without naming Pakistan said such attacks would continue until people across the border don't stop. In the attack, atleast one terrorist and three Border Security Force ( BSF ) troopers were injured.

Australia's total score was 118 for the loss of 8 wickets in 18.4 overs.

Meanwhile, the next match of the series will be played in Guwahati on Tuesday.

The squad has five new faces in Moises Henriques, Tim Paine, Jason Behrendoff, Andrew Tye and Daniel Christian. Probably that is when Australia lost the plot in the match.

The star batsman - who has not played a T20 for his country since March 2016 - was in doubt after hurting his shoulder during the fifth and final one-day global against India last week. Forty-eight was never going to challenge the Indian batting line up, but Australian bowlers did well to take the game in the final over.

Yadav (2-16 off four overs) had his second victim when Moises Henriques (eight) advanced down the wicket to a leg break which kept low, clean bowling him.

On the other hand, India will look to continue their dominance after a thumping win over Australia in the ODI series.

India: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Axar Patel.
