    India’s bowling was brilliant. All the bowlers bowled exceptionally well with only Shami being a little expensive. It all started with Chahal who was brought in as a concussion substitute. He started it all with getting the big wicket of Aaron Finch and then sent Steven Smith back to the dugout in quick time. Chahal was economical as well and he was well supported by Washington Sundar. Sundar did not pick up any wickets but the way he kept it tight was crucial for India’s chances. T Natarajan was the star on his T20I debut as he picked up a 3-fer, including the wicket of the Big Show, Glenn Maxwell. All the bowlers kept it tight and did not give much away. Overall, it was an excellent bowling performance.

    India vs Australia T20 2020 Live Cricket Score: OUT! BOWLED! T Natarajan removes Mitchell Starc for 1. And the yorker Natarajan cleans his left-arm counterpart from Australia. The angle is very good for a left-arm seamer. What a debut he is having. It was a yorker on off and middle, Starc gives himself some room and looks to go big over covers. But he misses and the ball crashes into the sticks. AUS 127/7 in 18.1 overs vs IND (161/7)

India vs Australia 2020 1st T20I MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

India’s concussion substitute Yuzvendra Chahal, who came in for Ravindra Jadeja during Australia’s innings, picked three for 25 in his four overs to help India beat Australia by 11 runs in the first T20 International at the Manuka Oval on Friday. This was India’s sixth win over Australia in 10 T20Is on Australian soil. The win helped India take 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series. India had earlier lost the ODI series 1-2. Chahal – 3/25, who took the field as Jadeja could not play as a bowler in Australia’s innings after taking a hit on his head off Mitchell Starc’s short ball during his unbeaten knock of 23-ball 44, took the important wickets of skipper Aaron Finch, Steve Smith and Matthew Wade to dent the Aussie chase of 162.(SCORECARD) Also Read - Australia vs India 2021: Centurion Marnus Labuschagne Disappointed at Not Getting Big Score at The Gabba, Credits 'Disciplined' Indian Bowling Attack

The Australians had got off to a good start but Chahal removed Finch and Smith in his first two overs. He came back to get rid of Wade as the Aussie middle-order batsman looked for a big hit in the face of a rising required run rate. T Natarajan – 3/30 – was the other successful bowler as he picked the wickets of Glenn Maxwell, D’Arcy Short and Mitchell Starc. The decision to bring in Chahal for Jadeja, who just before getting hit on his head was already limping did not please Australia coach Justin Langer who was seen discussing the issue with match referee David Boon.
