Ranchi T20I: Australia manage to reach 118/8 in rain-hit match

Ranchi T20I: Australia manage to reach 118/8 in rain-hit match

Ranchi, Oct 7 (UNI) A disciplined bowling from India restricted Australia to a paltry 118/8 in the rain-hit first T20I of the three-match series at the JSCA International stadium here on Saturday evening. The Australian innings was declared complete at 18.4 overs when the play stopped following heavy rains. Put into bat after losing the toss, the visitors never looked in control on a slow Ranchi wicket and kept on receiving blows at regular intervals. The kangaroos received a jolt early in the game when pacer Bhuvaneshwar Kumar striked in the very first over to dismiss a good looking David Warner (8). The fall of Warner saw Glenn Maxwell joining opener Aaron Finch and the duo stiched a crucial 47-run partnership for the second wicket. Just when things seemed under control for Australia as they surpassed the 50-run mark, Yuzvendra Chahal dismissed Maxwell (17) in the seventh over to put the opponents on back foot. Situation continued to worsen for the visitors as couple of overs later, leggie Kuldeep Yadav applied brakes on an aggressive Finch's innings, who had already smashed 42 off 30 ball with the help of four boundaries and one six. With Australia reeling at 76/3 in 9.5 overs, the Indian bowlers took full advantage of the wicket and conditions and didn't let any Aussie batsman get settled in the middle. The visitors could manage to add only 42 runs in the next 8.5 overs losing another five wickets before rain interrupted play. For India, Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah picked up couple of wickets each while Bhuvaneshwar, Hardik Pandya and Chahal bagged a wicket apiece. Brief Score: Australia: 118/8 in 18.4 overs, Aaron Finch 42, Glenn Maxwell 17 Kuldeep Yadav 2/16, Jaspreet Bumrah 2/17 UNI AK KU 2113
