27 March 2016 - day/night match (20-over match)

Nehra to Khawaja, OUT, caught behind and the crowd roars for the first time in this game! Khawaja drove hard at a good length ball that shaped away from him from around off stump and got a thick edge through to Dhoni. India have their first wicket. That ball flew rapidly to the keeper.

UT Khawaja c †Dhoni b Nehra 26 (19m 16b 6x4 0x6) SR: 162.50

Australia 54/1   AJ Finch 22* (10b 1x4 2x6)   A Nehra 2.2-0-15-1

Ashwin to Warner, OUT, stumped! Warner skipped down the track but could not get to the pitch of the delivery, perhaps he came forward too early and Ashwin shortened his length and slowed the pace down too. The ball spun away from the left-hander and beat Warner's helpless prod. Dhoni did the rest

DA Warner st †Dhoni b Ashwin 6 (15m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 72/2   AJ Finch 32* (22b 2x4 2x6)   R Ashwin 1.5-0-30-1

Yuvraj Singh to Smith, OUT, and he has struck first ball!!! An incredible turn of events. That is his first ball of the tournament. He fired it in quick from around the wicket and got the ball to bounce a bit away from the right-hander, Smith stayed back and wafted at the ball. Dhoni went up rightaway, but Smith looked unhappy. I'll wait for replays to confirm if there was an edge or not. Smith was beaten on the inside edge as he tried to cut, it doesn't look like there was an obvious edge. Nothing definite on snicko. Smith may be unlucky, but it's difficult to tell.

SPD Smith c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 2 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 74/3   AJ Finch 32* (24b 2x4 2x6)   Yuvraj Singh 0.1-0-0-1

Pandya to Finch, OUT, short again, pulls again and this Pandya wins the contest! Finch seemed to be hurried for time as he swung across the line and mis-timed it to Dhawan at deep midwicket, that was taken well inside the boundary

AJ Finch c Dhawan b Pandya 43 (57m 34b 3x4 2x6) SR: 126.47

Australia 100/4   GJ Maxwell 13* (14b)   HH Pandya 2-0-11-1

Bumrah to Maxwell, OUT, bowled him with the slower ball! Maxwell heaved across the line so, so early that he was almost through the shot before the ball arrived. He had backed away towards leg to make a bit of room too. Bumrah clipped the top of off stump.

GJ Maxwell b Bumrah 31 (32m 28b 1x4 1x6) SR: 110.71

Australia 130/5   SR Watson 8* (7b 1x4)   JJ Bumrah 2.3-0-21-1

Pandya to Faulkner, OUT, caught at long on! It's a good length ball that does not come on to the bat, Faulkner makes room and slogs, but mis-times the ball straight to Kohli in the deep. Will Australia get to 150?

JP Faulkner c Kohli b Pandya 10 (11m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 145/6   SR Watson 13* (13b 1x4)   HH Pandya 3.1-0-21-2
