India vs Australia 1st T20I Brisbane: Chris Lynn’s 37 runs blitz off 20 balls gave Australia the right momentum they were looking for after a watchful start by the openers. Australia was desperately looking to up the ante when Lynn joined Finch and took off straight away. His breathtaking cameo comprised of four sixes and a boundary. But an instance that took fans by surprise was when Lunn smashed Khaleel for a humongous six over mid-wicket. He hit the ball in the second tier and it was caught by a fan in the crowd in his home ground and in front of his home-supporters. The fan will surely remember the moment for the rest of his life.
Earlier in the day, India won the toss and opted to field first. Bhuvi and Bumrah hit the right lengths to keep a lid on the run-scoring. Finally, Khaleel picked up the first wicket with his first ball of the spell. Soon after that, Kuldeep picked two to derail the hosts. That is when Glenn Maxwell came in and hit a breathtaking 43 off 23 balls, his innings was studded with four sixes and no fours. At the time of filing the copy, the rain had interrupted play and Australia was 153/3 in 16.1 overs.
