India beat Australia by 9 wickets in rain-curtailed 1st T20 match

It said the first edition of Test championship would run over a two-year cycle beginning in 2019

India beat Australia by 9 wickets with 3 balls to spare to take a 1-0 lead in the 3 T20I series.

Australia's batting woes continued as they once again failed to read Kuldeep Yadav's left-arm wrist spin. It was far from the picture David Warner, Australia's stand-in captain, had pictured when he was asked to bat and expressed his inclination to do the same.

The Australian innings was declared complete at 18.4 overs when the play stopped following heavy rains.

Since his outstanding tour of India in February and March, Smith has managed just 347 runs at 34.70 in 10 ODIs.

Warner, who slammed two consecutive boundaries in the over by Bhuvneshwar, was sent back to pavilion for mere eight runs in the fifth ball.

Smith has been unable to bat or throw without discomfort since landing on his right shoulder during that match, forcing the selectors to call in Marcus Stoinis as his replacement for the three T20 fixtures.

India's captain Virat Kohli (L) is watched by Australia's wicketkeeper Tim Paine as he plays a shot during the first Twenty 20 cricket match between India and Australia at The JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi, India, October 7, 2017.

For Australia, Jason Behrendorff will be making his debut and will partner fellow pacers Andrew Tye and Nathan Coulter-Nile. Shikhar Dhawan, who had opted out of the ODI series, is back into the setup.

Australia could be without captain Steve Smith for the opening Twenty20 meeting with India on Saturday due to injury.

Kuldeep Yadav was declared Man of the Match for his excellent and economical bowling. If that happens, Dinesh Karthik and KL Rahul will have to warm the benches.

All-rounders Dan Christian and Moises Henriques have joined the squad for the T20 series. Adam Zampa, meanwhile, is the only specialist spinner in their side.

India Playing 11 vs Australia: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah.
