After his dismissal, Australia struggled a bit in the middle but thanks to Mathew Wade and Tim Wade as they went through the Indian bowling line-up to win the game and also got the lead of 1-0 in the three-match series.
It was a good contest: Aaron Finch
Winning the 1st T20I against India, the Australian skipper Aaron Finch shared a few words in the post-match presentation regarding to the performance against the hosts.
"It was a good contest, wasn't it? We had some really good partnerships, there were some good contests between the bat and ball. They came hard at us. You expect the run rate to slow down if you lose wickets.
The batters tried to change the momentum of the game. That's what we play for, we still try to instil all the processes leading into the World Cup," said Aaron Finch.
However, Rohit Sharma wasn't happy with Yuzvendra Chahal and Dinesh Karthik as both of them missed an lbw chance of Cameron Green during the 5th over of the game. After that, the right-handed batter went on to smash 61 runs from 30 balls which proved the value of his wicket for them.
