India vs Australia: Jason Behrendorff lets his 'skill do the talking'

12 October 2017

And his hunger wasn't quite satisfied after his debut in the first Twenty20 global against India in Ranchi. Actually, he could have got one more over had Australia been aware of the change in rules.

The second T20 will be played at Guwahati on Saturday.

Late contributions down the order from Hardik Pandya (25) and Kuldeep Yadav (16) allowed India to make a brief recovery but Australia did well to bowl them out for 118 in the 20 overs.

"I don't think we were good enough with the bat". Brilliant start from Behrendorff, he's got three already.

Given the new ball, Jason trapped the aggressive Rohit Sharma for eight off his fourth ball. As Dhawan lofted a drive high over Warner's head at mid-off, the Australian turned and sprinted towards the boundary, turning his head skywards on several occasions to track the path of the ball.

On the other hand, some argue decertification and the possibility of USA sanctions on Iran might win support from the Europeans. Several US officials have said Trump might this time choose not certify the accord.

India made a fighting start in defence of the meager total, as Jasprit Bumrah (1/25) and Bhuvneshwar (1/9) removed unsafe openers David Warner (2) and Aaron Finch (8) cheaply.

Behrendorff landed the ball on length as Kohli looked to flick it on the leg for a run.

Behrendorff in the process became the first bowler to dismiss India skipper Kohli for a duck in a T20I match when he caught the dashing right-handed batsman off his own bowling in the first over of the match. Henriques took advantage of a possible slice of luck when on just two - replays suggested he got a feather behind off Bhuvneshwar Kumar but the hosts decided against a review - as he and Head combined for nine fours and fives sixes as the tourists won by eight wickets. But if you have to win the (low-scoring) match, you have to keep taking wickets, especially in the middle overs, which we couldn't do.

"An unbelievable feeling to be honest". He nonchalantly plays down talk about the performance in Guwahati earning him an Indian Premier League contract and a place in the Ashes squad, yet entertains a question about his likeness to John Cena, the professional wrestler, eliciting a big guffaw from the cricketer and a quip - "He's a fair bit bigger than I am!"

"You don't have to be mean and nasty all the time", he said. This did not go down well with the fans, who could not digest India being tamed in the manner that they were. "But that's not really my style".
