Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Aaron Finch, 1.4 ov), 2-79 (Steven Smith, 9.4 ov), 3-169 (Matthew Wade, 18.2 ov), 4-175 (Glenn Maxwell, 19.1 ov), 5-182 (D'Arcy Short, 19.4 ov)
1.4 to AJ Finch, a miscue to mid off! Back of a length on off, he went back and tried to flat back it over mid off but he completely miscued and lobbed a catch to Pandya on the circle at mid off. Simple catch. 14/1
9.4 to SPD Smith, clean bowled! Rahul is relieved! Lovely delivery. Tossed higher and slower outside off, Smith gives room to try and loft to the short boundary at cover, he is deceived in flight and it clips the top of off.. 79/2
19.1 to GJ Maxwell, Natarajan aims for the yorker, but it comes out as a full-toss. Maxwell shuffles across, looks to reverse-swat it away, but misses it altogether in the end. Natarajan messes with the stumps once again. 175/4
18.2 to MS Wade, slower dipper from Thakur and Wade has been given out lbw. The batsman sweeps early, the ball plunges sharply and hits him on the boot in line with the stumps. Wade has reviewed almost immediately. Has he nicked it then? Nope, and ball-tracking returns three reads. Wade goes for a career-best 80 off 53 balls. 169/3

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.70)174/7
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (KL Rahul, 0.2 ov), 2-74 (Shikhar Dhawan, 8.5 ov), 3-97 (Sanju Samson, 12.3 ov), 4-100 (Shreyas Iyer, 12.6 ov), 5-144 (Hardik Pandya, 17.1 ov), 6-151 (Virat Kohli, 18.1 ov), 7-164 (Washington Sundar, 19.2 ov)
0.2 to KL Rahul, holes out to deep midwicket! 82kph, shorter length, Rahul pinned the ears back to hammer this over deep midwicket into the crowd and just didn't middle it, he hit it straight down Smith's throat and the Australians are delighted. 0/1
19.2 to Washington Sundar, caught at deep point! It would have been a wide if he didn't hit it! It was a thigh high full toss way wide of off, he reached out and got it off the toe, slicing it to deep backward point and Tye runs in and judges the catch well sliding on his knees. 164/7
18.1 to V Kohli, caught at deep backward point! Great catch by Sams! Full and wide, Kohli slices a square drive flat and low and it's dipping away from Sams as he runs forward, but he dives and takes it cleanly above the turf. 151/6
8.5 to S Dhawan, Sams grabs it on the second attempt and gives Swepson the breakthrough. Dragged down on off stump, Dhawan absolutely nails the pull but hits it towards deep midwicket, where Sams originally runs in, then leaps to his left. He somehow hangs onto the catch in the end. 74/2
12.3 to SV Samson, Oh, Samson has mis-hit a full-toss straight to long-on. It's a dipping full-toss, plunges sharply on the batsman, making him lose his shape. Regulation take in the outfield and just reward for Swepson. 97/3
12.6 to SS Iyer, Swepson's night gets better! Iyer has been given out lbw, he chats to his captain and asks for a review. Wrong'un from Swepson, Iyer inches forward and does not read it, pushing outside the line of it. Did he nick it? Nope, and it's clipping top of leg stump. Swepson finishes with 3 for 23 in four overs. Will it turn out to be a match-winning spell?. 100/4
17.1 to HH Pandya, top edge caught at short third man! Finch took the catch after taking the gamble. Brilliantly bowled from Zampa. He tossed it up with enough flight, dip and spin, Pandya tried to launch against the turn over long, got a top edge and it sliced to Finch at short third man who takes the catch easily. 144/5
