Australia beat India by 4 wickets in the first T20I to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series. In this match, India, batting first, scored a mammoth score of 208 for 6 in 20 overs thanks to Hardik's explosive innings, but very few people expected that Australia would easily achieve this target.
Australia got off to a good start chasing the target of 209 runs by India. However, Australia surprised India by sending Cameron Green for the opening. Green playing his second T20 match also proved the decision of the captain and management right and was seen thrashing the Indian bowlers fiercely.
India had to resort to its best fielder to get him out. Camner Green, who scored a half-century in just 26 balls, was in the mood to stun India in a one-sided fashion, but Axar Patel caught him in his net on the very first ball of the 11th over. After the drinks break, Green went for a big shot once again and was caught on the very first ball to Virat Kohli standing at long-on. However, Virat Kohli took a very good catch of Green. During this, his eyes were also almost closed.
Cameron Green returned to the pavilion after scoring 61 off 30 balls. During this, he hit 8 fours and 4 sixes in his innings. After Green was dismissed, Umesh Yadav gave Australia two big blows in the next over. He dismissed Maxwell and Smith. Axar Patel took another wicket in his next over, but Matthew Wade and Tim David did not let the wicket fall after that. However, David got out after reaching close to the target in an attempt to hit a big shot. But by then Australia was very close to victory. Wade scored 45 runs in 21 balls. Australia won this match by 4 wickets.
