Injury Blow For Aussie Skipper Steve Smith

08 October, 2017, 00:54 | Author: Phil Peters

Paceman Jason Behrendorff will make his long-awaited worldwide debut in Australia's T20 against India in Ranchi tonight.

WICKET! Big wicket for Kuldeep Yadav, big wicket for India. It was far from the picture David Warner, Australia's stand-in captain, had pictured when he was asked to bat and expressed his inclination to do the same.

Glenn Maxwell couldn't play himself into form, struggling for his 17.

The Australians lost their five-match one-day series against India 4-1 and started a three-match Twenty20 series later Saturday. It's that 3-0 loss that Australia will look at keenly to draw some inspiration. But it was the batting that led them down, especially the collapse that we have seen so often after Finch's wicket.

Dhawan's 12 ball innings was laced with three boundaries, while Kohli also smacked three fours in his 14-ball knock.

Shikhar Dhawan returned to the side after missing the ODIs to attend to his ailing wife while Kuldeep Yadav took up the spot of the second spinner instead of Axar Patel. Australia are likely to hand Jason Behrendorff a T20I debut, while India would gladly welcome Ashish Nehra back to the team.

Australian captain Steve Smith will return home before the start of the T20I series against India after failing to recover from a shoulder injury.

With regular captain Steve Smith having to fly home due to a shoulder injury, David Warner took over the skipper duties for the T20Is. The 38-year-old's his death bowling ability will be a welcome mix to the Bhuvneshwar Kumar-Jasprit Bumrah axis.

Rohit Sharma made 11 off seven balls before Nathan Coulter-Nile found a way through his defences to claim the only wicket of the innings.

There's no break for Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma, and even MS Dhoni will continue to wicket-keep, even though they have brought in Dinesh Karthik as a stand-in keeper. While the team has the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Tim Paine, Dan Christian, Travis Head and Moises Henriques, a lot will depend on how Warner and Finch go about their business.
