Sports| Australia made an improbable 3-wicket win over India in the first T-20 match in last balls of the match, taking 1-0 lead in the two-match series. India got 76 runs in the first nine overs with batting first, where KL Rahul scored 50 runs of 36 balls. However, despite the presence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (29 not out on 37 balls), they could only make 50 runs in 11 overs, and in this way, Australia restricted them to 126 for seven wickets.

In response, Australia's Glenn Maxwell (56 of 43 balls) and D’Arcy Short (37 of 37 balls) in response to the 84-run partnership for the third wicket was going on for an easy win. But, India did a great return. Due to the excellent bowling of Jaspreet Bumrah took three wickets giving 16 runs, Australia had the goal of making 14 runs in the last six balls. Umesh Yadav came to the last over. Australia's tailor Jhye Richardson (seven not out) and Pat Cummins (seven not out) in front of them.

Dhoni stepped into the crease at the start of the 11th over and stayed till the end. But, his bat manages to hit just one six. This six too came out in the last over. He scored 29 runs but played 37 balls for this. The strike rate of this wicketkeeper batsman was 78.37 on the target of critics earlier for slow batting. Nathan Coulter-Nile was Australia's most successful bowler. He took 3 for 26 runs in four overs. Jason Behrandfor (one by 16 runs), Cummins (one for 19 runs) and Adam Zampa (one for 22 runs) gave their best support.

Earlier, India did not start well and in the third over, Rohit Sharma (five runs in eight balls) lost the wicket, who made an easy catch at short fine leg in an effort to scoop a Behrendorff ball. Returning to the form of two half-century innings from India A, Rahul showed his rhythm with a six-wicket haul, Richardson's length and four boundaries on slow balls, and sixes from the spinner Zampa’s head. Kohli could not perform his flick, drive and slash for a long time. Flicking on Zampa Ball, he was caught on long over, while Rishabh Pant (three runs in five balls) got out by his own mistake.

Rahul hit the ball on the last ball of the ninth over and after that the ball went crazy to go out of the boundary. Rahul completed his fifth half-century of his T20 international career on 35 balls, but soon after that, giving an easy catch to midfield in an attempt to play the ball to the ball to Neil. Coulter Nile screwed the new batsman Dinesh Karthik (one run on three balls) in the same over and sent India back to backfoot. KR Krishna Pandey (one run in six balls) and Umesh (two runs in four balls) were the next batsmen, while Dhoni looked all the time struggling to score runs. He did not take a single run several times in the meantime.
