400+ runs in T20!!! Well, it was time for India and Australia to take on each other inRajkot. Almost 30,000 cricket fans were eager to see their Home Team perform well and beat Australia. On the other hand Australia were hoping to create an upset and start their series with a win. Although it was a One-off T20 match, but a win was very important to build a momentum. So who won!! Was it India! Or Australia!! Or the Cricket fans!! Well, let's find it out.
All eyes were on the toss and it was time for MSD to win the toss and send Australia to bat first. Aaron Finch and Nic Maddinson were the openers and for India it was Bhuvneshwar Kumar from the bowling side. Aaron Finch had made his intentions clear from the start and hit the bowlers out of the park. Soon Australia has reached 50 runs in just 25 balls. Maddinson 29* off just 13 balls, Finch 20* off 12.
Then came the first breakthrough with Bhuvneshwar Kumar striking Nic Maddinson out. But runs did not stop in spite of wickets falling at regular intervals. Soon Australia were at 181 for 7 after 17.5 overs. And Faulkner hit a six on the final ball of the innings, taking thefinale score to 201 for 7 wkts. Three wickets each for Rohit Sharma and R Vinay Kumar in the end.
So now it was time for India to chase over 200 runs. It was a tough task, but with the strong batting lineup of India, anything was possible. Shane Watson opened the bowling attack for Australia, and Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma opened for India. But India did lose an early wicket of Rohit Sharma; score 12/1. Then came in Suresh Raina, but he too did not last long, and soon India were at 50/2 after 5.3 overs. Both Virat Kohli and Dhawan tried to add more runs and took the score to 100 for 4 after 11.1 overs.
Was followed next was just magical innings by Yuvraj Singh. He was just timing the ball off to the fence and Dhoni was having a great time at the non-striker's end, watching Yuvraj's power packet innings. With the help of Yuvraj's 77 runs of 35 balls, India managed to seal a 6-wicket win and also completed a 100-run stand between him and Dhoni.
