It was a match which on one hand showcased India's never say die attitude but on the other, exposed their weak bench strength. KL Rahul's return to Indian colours was impressive as he scored a brisk 50 but got no support from the other end. Batsmen fell like 9 pins as India went from being 80/2 to settling at 126/7 in 20 overs. Maxwell and Short were running away with the match but Jasprit Bumrah spearheaded the fightback with 3 wickets as bowlers turned the contest on it's head. Regular wickets boiled the equation down to 14 required off the final over, which Umesh Yadav failed to defend. Australia won a last ball thriller by 3 wickets to take an unassailable 1-0 lead in the 2 match T20 series.
