Right then, that is all we have from this game. The action in the warm-up matches however, will continue with two more matches coming your way. Pakistan take on South Africa and reigning champions West Indies face-off against Afghanistan. Both these matches will begin at 6 pm local time (2:30 pm GMT). Do switch tabs and enjoy the action. Till then, cheers!.
Earlier in the day, Aaron Finch won the toss and decided to bat first which proved to be a disaster as Australia lost 3 wickets in the first 4 overs. Steven Smith then occupied the crease and almost batted through with Marcus Stoinis playing an important cameo. The total was a bit under par and the Indian top order breezed through the chase and ended up winning by 9 wickets.
Australia have some serious issues going into the T20 World Cup but the form of Steven Smith isn't one of them. Earlier, it was the top order which failed and now the pace bowlers were just not upto the mark. The conditions didn't help them either but their spinners did bowl well with Ashton Agar picking up the only wicket in the innings. The Aussies have a plethora of all-rounders but these under par performances make selection that more difficult. Australia will now look to find the right balance and get back on track in their first match of the tournament.
Practice makes a man perfect and that could be seen in India's batting today. All of them have had a lot of practice in the Indian T20 League and are now well versed with the conditions. Just like the last match, the Indian openers got off to a flier. KL Rahul continued his brilliant form as he put on a 68-run partnership with Rohit Sharma at the top. Rahul fell, but Sharma kept on getting better and better as he notched up a half-century and retired soon after. Suryakumar Yadav at the other end played some extraordinary shots and Hardik Pandya added the finishing touches.
It was like a walk in the park for India as Hardik Pandya wrapped things up in style with 13 balls remaining. Australia, on the other hand, have a lot to think about before heading into the main draw of the tournament.
