India vs Australia: Green, Wade star as visitors fashion incredible run-chase to go 1-0 up

India's frailties with the ball were laid bare as Australia gunned down a formidable 209-run target rather comfortably for a four-wicket win in the first T20 International

India vs Australia : 208 - India's highest total against Australia in T20Is, and yet the Men in Blue failed to defend the total in the first T20I in Mohali.

Cameron Green struck a brilliant 61 off 30 deliveries and Matthew Wade's sensational 45* from just 21 balls sealed the game in favour of the visitors.

Chasing 209 for victory, Australia were cruising at 109/1 after the first 10 overs, with Green & Smith going great guns.

However, 4 wickets in as many overs right after the halfway mark saw India get back into the contest. But India's poor death bowling that saw Bhuvi leak 52 and Harshal concede 49 from their 4 overs, coupled with Wade's special blitz got the Aussies over the line.

The fact that India dropped as many as 3 catches during the innings also proved to be their undoing.

Earlier, even as Rohit Sharma & Virat Kohli got out cheaply, KL Rahul notched up his 18th T20I fifty. While Suryakumar Yadav scored 46 off 25 balls, it was Hardik's blitzkrieg, a 30-ball unbeaten 71 that took India to a mammoth 208.

But even that wasn't enough!
