The Twitterati went mental as the Indian bowlers demolished the Australian batting line-up. Aaron Finch gave the visitors a good start but Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav were able to keep the middle order in check as six Australians were dismissed as a result of their stumps being disturbed.
India waltzed to a comfortable 9-wicket victory after a rain interruption led to Australia’s score of 118/8 being revised to 48 runs off 6 overs. Earlier, Kuldeep Yadav (2/16) and Jasprit Bumrah (2/17) had decimated the Aussie innings after an Aaron Finch's 42 had given the visitors a good start.
Here are the tweets from the match:
Good news before the match!
I am sure many of you are wondering why Nehra was selected but is not starting today. Well here is the answer! :P
Ashish Nehra is GST of Indian team. He increases average age of the team.— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) October 7, 2017
After losing Warner early the Aussies turned to Maxwell, but this is what he was doing on the pitch! :P
Love watching Maxwell but currently he's cutting trees with his bat for singles.......— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) October 7, 2017
Afridi, is that you?
Glenn Maxwell, Australian Afridi forever. #INDvAUS— Nikhil 🏏 (@CricCrazyNIKS) October 7, 2017
After some cutting, Maxwell does what he does best, get out to Chahal! :P
Chahal is like I don't even have to bowl a good ball to get Maxwell's wicket. #INDvsAUS— jigar mehta (@jigsactin) October 7, 2017
Pretty sure that the Indian fielders had good intentions while dropping those catches! :P
India want to ensure they have a reasonable target to chase down #INDvAUS— Gaurav Kalra (@gauravkalra75) October 7, 2017
When everyone was getting bowled one man in the dugout was relieved!
Meanwhile, Jadeja and Ashwin after watching the Indian spinners bowl will be like.....
As a result of the rain...
India need 48 from 6. And people think the Dubai T10 will be too short! #IndvAus— Paul Dennett (@the_summer_game) October 7, 2017
What a jinx by Sanjay! :P
Australia's misery continues!
Last time when Australia beat India in T20:— Sarcastic Dude (@Sarcasticdudee) October 7, 2017
India ruled by UPA government...
America ruled by Barack Obama...
