    SIX! There was Rohit at long-off, but Henriques still decides to take on Kuldeep, and clears Rohit. He races to his fifty, with another six, this time a pulled one over mid-wicket! Kuldeep gives away 17.

    First Kuldeep, then Chahal. A few dot balls and singles, but no wicket — which means Australia are on track. They need 22 from 36 balls now.

    SIX from Head! He decides he had enough, stretches his front leg, and slog-sweeps Chahal over mid-wicket, clean shot. Australia are hurrying now, they need 31 from 48 balls.

  • 9:45 PM IST

    Long-hop from Kuldeep. He is clearly struggling. Head calmly rocks back and pulls him over mid-wicket, Dhawan gives up the chase. Henriques responds immediately, ramming one past cover. Australia need 41 in 54 balls now.

  • 9:42 PM IST

    Chahal comes on. He bowls accurately till Henriques plays a deft late cut for four. Australia need 52 in 60 balls now.

  • 9:36 PM IST

    Hardik bounces, Henriques hooks to the fine-leg fence. Head joins in the fun too, stepping out and unleashing a short-arm pull past mid-wicket. The match is slipping away from India at a rapid pace.

  • 9:35 PM IST

    Australia need 69 from 72. As was expected, Kuldeep struggled. He bowled two long-hops, and was hit for six by Henriques and for four by Head. Australia are cruising.

  • 9:24 PM IST

    SIX! Not very short but not very quick either from Bumrah, and Henriques has enough time for a meaty pull. Australia now need 85 from 84 balls.

This will be first T20I match Barsapara Stadium. The curator Mukut Kalita has promised a batting track that will make for an exciting view for the fans and spectators alike. “Our best effort is to make the match memorable by making a wicket full of runs.
