Australia tour of India, Only T20I: India v Australia at Rajkot, Oct 10, 2013
India won by 6 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)
10 October 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Kumar to Maddinson, OUT, gone! Bit of inexperience there you have to think. He was batting so well, playing decent shots, but he goes for an ungainly swipe across the line, and Kumar comes in from around the wicket to angle one in. Maddinson misses, Bhuvneshwar hits the top of off stump and sends the wicket flying. Promising first innings though.

NJ Maddinson b Kumar 34 (19m 16b 6x4 1x6) SR: 212.50

Australia 56/1   AJ Finch 21* (13b 4x4)   B Kumar 1.5-0-17-1

Vinay Kumar to Watson, OUT, jagged back in sharply, off a length and it misses Watson's big off drive. Hits him on the back pad and he has to go. Very good ball

SR Watson lbw b Vinay Kumar 6 (12m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Australia 84/2   AJ Finch 42* (23b 7x4 1x6)   R Vinay Kumar 1.2-0-12-1

Vinay Kumar to Bailey, OUT, short ball on the stumps and Bailey doesn't last long. He pulls that one, but not very well. The mistimed stroke goes straight to the man at deep square leg. Second wicket of the over, and it could be a match-changing one for India

GJ Bailey c Jadeja b Vinay Kumar 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 84/3   AJ Finch 42* (23b 7x4 1x6)   R Vinay Kumar 1.5-0-12-2

Jadeja to Maxwell, OUT, he's gone now. Maxwell was aiming for yet another six, but Jadeja does him in the flight, and he mistimes this to Ishant Sharma at long on, who takes it just inside the rope, I think. Umpires check it and replays show that Sharma didn't touch the boundary. Good catch, and a decent ball from Jadeja. Took the bottom edge I think,

GJ Maxwell c I Sharma b Jadeja 27 (12m 13b 0x4 4x6) SR: 207.69

Australia 124/4   AJ Finch 53* (32b 8x4 1x6)   RA Jadeja 2.3-0-12-1

Kumar to Haddin, OUT, short, wide and out. That deserved to go the boundary, but instead it ends in the wicketkeeper's gloves. Might have moved slightly off the seam, but it wasn't much. Haddin cuts at it, and gets a top edge to the keeper

BJ Haddin c †Dhoni b Kumar 5 (5m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

Australia 146/5   AJ Finch 68* (41b 10x4 1x6)   B Kumar 2.3-0-24-2

Vinay Kumar to Finch, OUT, he's got him. Can you believe it's off a knee-high full toss? That's floated up to Finch, who misjudges the pace, and is too early on the shot. He gets an under-edge and hits it straight back to the bowler, who seems to hurt his finger as he holds on. End of a very good innings.

AJ Finch c & b Vinay Kumar 89 (71m 52b 14x4 1x6) SR: 171.15

Australia 174/6   MC Henriques 7* (7b)   R Vinay Kumar 2.3-0-16-3

Kumar to Henriques, OUT, and another slower ball does the trick. Shortish one, outside off stump. Henriques tries to pull but again, is too early and a leading edge balloons to point

MC Henriques c Yuvraj Singh b Kumar 12 (16m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 180/7   NM Coulter-Nile 1* (2b)   B Kumar 3.4-0-33-3
