Injured Smith out of T20Is against India

India started off on a good note as pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar sent back skipper David Warner (8) in the first over itself.

India will also be bolstered by the return of old war horses like Ashish Nehra, Dinesh Karthik and opener Shikhar Dhawan against a side with whom they have lost only once out of the five series played so far.

Chasing 48 in six overs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series, the hosts reached their target with three deliveries to spare after the loss of Rohit Sharma for 11.

The DLS method was required after Australia's innings was cut short by bad weather, the tourists having lurched to 118-8 by the time rain stopped play during the 19th over.

Australian team doctor Richard Saw said: 'Smith landed awkwardly on his right shoulder while diving in the field during the fifth ODI against India last Sunday.

A disciplined bowling from India restricted Australia to a paltry 118/8 in the rain-hit first T20I of the three-match series at the JSCA International stadium here on Saturday evening.

After putting Australia into bat, the Indian bowlers did a fantastic job to restrict the Aussie batsman for just 118 after 18.4 overs. India had earlier registered an easy 4-1 series win in the ODIs.

Australia included Moises Henriques, Daniel Christian and Andrew Tye in its team. Jasprit Bumrah meanwhile had figures of 2 for 17 in the 3 overs he bowled.

Coming back on the track of victory, Indian cricket team successfully defeated the foes in final game of ODI series.
