India vs Australia 1st T20I Brisbane: So, was KL Rahul out or did he have some part of his leg inside the line? Well, the line belongs to the umpire and it seems that is how it was looked at during the 1st T20I in Brisbane which India lost by four runs (DLS Method). Rahul was stumped for 13 off 12 balls of the bowling of Adam Zampa. Replays were shown from two different angles, one angle suggested he did not have any part of his foot inside the line, whereas the other part gave us another picture altogether.
Here is how Twitter reacted to the dismissal, they seemed divided.
Meanwhile, a sloppy India failed to get an ideal start to the Australia tour, losing the rain-hit opening T20 International by four runs at the Gabba Wednesday. India first faltered in the field, letting Australia score 158 for four after rain shortened the contest to 17 overs a side. Glenn Maxwell was the star batsman for Australia, hammering 46 runs off 24 balls. The rain stoppage meant India were set a revised target of 174 runs in 17 overs.
Opener Shikhar Dhawan smashed a sublime 76 off 42 balls in the run chase before Dinesh Karthik came up with a pulsating 30 off 13 balls towards the end but India still finished agonisingly short on 169 for seven. It was a moral-boosting win for Australia, who have endured a dismal run of late in limited overs cricket.
