Australia had suffered a 1-4 defeat against India in the ODIs and their fortunes continued to slip when they lost to <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/australia-in-india-2017-200780/live-scores/india-vs-australia-live-cricket-score-1st-t20i-match-184286-full-scorecard.html" target="_blank">India in the rain-effected T20I by 9 wickets (DLS)</a> at Ranchi. <p></p> <p></p>Australia were 118 for 8 in the 19th over when the rains went merciless. When play resumed India had to chase down 48 from 6 overs. From almost 6 an over, India had to chase down 8 an over. An honest Warner said that his team did not deserve the chance. <p></p> <p></p> At the end of the day, it's a poor result for us. We have to be better next game. We didn t deserve to have that chance after almost being bowled out for 120, said Warner at the post-match presentation ceremony. Warner had words of encouragement for his bowlers. But to get as close as we did, the bowlers did an okay job. I don t have an answer for our struggles in T20Is. <p></p> <p></p>Australia have struggled in T20Is, and this is their seventh defeat on the trot against India. They are the seventh-ranked side in this format according to ICC Rankings. <p></p> <p></p>Jason Behrendorff made his debut and was flicked for a boundary by Rohit Sharma off his first ball in Australian colours. However, the left-arm pacer came back well to give away only 5 from his over. He played no further role in the rain-marred tie. <p></p> <p></p> He s (Behrendorff) from Perth and he s got nice bounce and pace. I'm looking forward to playing more games with him in Australian colours, said Warner. <p></p> <p></p>The teams will play their second T20I on Tuesday at the new stadium in Guwahati.
