India vs Australia 1st T20 match in Sydney: Highlights Video


A video of the first T20 match between India and Australia that the hosts won by 31-run at the ANZ Stadium in Sydney on Wednesday.

Chasing an achievable score of 172, India managed to 140 for six in their 20 overs.

India got off to a poor start losing opener Virender Sehwag in the very first over.

Sehwag’s (4) bad form continued on this tour when he was caught by David Hussey off Brett Lee in the very first over.

Opener Gautam Gambhir and in-form Virat Kohli steadied the Indian innings with a partnership of 41 runs for the second wicket.

Hussey was involved in the second wicket when he had Gambhir (20) caught by Mitchell Marsh.

Gambhir’s wicket saw a batting collapse with Virat Kohli (22) and Rohit Sharma (0) falling in space of six runs.

Suresh Raina, along with MS Dhoni, got down to repairing the innings.

Raina’s (14) vigil in the middle came to an end when Dan Christian rattled his timber to have India reeling at 72 for five in the 12th over.

Christian continued to have Indian batsmen dancing to his tune this time striking to send back Ravindra Jadeja (7)

Dhoni and Ravichandran Ashwin tired to take India closer to the target with a valiant unbeaten partnership of 59runs. But with run-rate rising with every ball, India’s defeat looked inevitable.

Earlier, wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade announced his return to international cricket with a bang by smashing a half-century against India in the first T20 International on Wednesday.

Wade smashed his way to 72 off only 43 deliveries as the home team scored 171 for four in 20 overs in their rain-affected innings.
