Behrendorff shocks India's top order

Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli made the rain-revised chase look easy

Preview: Coming from a nine-wicket win, in-form India will look to continuing their domination of Australia and seal the three-match Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) series at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati on Tuesday.

This will be the first game played at the newly constructed Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati but the preparations were hampered by the rain in the city.

Following the tourists' comfortable eight-wicket win that levelled the three-match series at 1-1, Australia's Finch posted a message on Twitter which featured an image of a smashed bus window.

Behrendorff ripped through the hosts' top order as he became the first man to take four wickets in a T20 for Australia against India, returning figures of 4-21 to restrict India to 118.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Tuesday entered the record books after taking 47 T20I innings to get dismissed for a duck.

A dominant India now eye another series win when they take on a faltering Australia in the second Twenty20 worldwide at Guwahati on Tuesday.


Skipper David Warner along with Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell will be the key batsmen for the visitors to get them off to a flying start.

The 27-year-old pacer bowled a length delivery around middle and leg which Rohit completely missed and was adjudged LBW. Repeating nearly the delivery that claimed Sharma, Behrendorff caught Kohli by surprise as the Indian captain, trying flick across the line, found an inside edge and the ball lobbed up after hitting his thigh pad to give the bowler an easy caught-and-bowled chance.

Now, if we hit back to the today's match then we can say that it is pretty important for both teams.

In his next over, Behrendorff scalped Pandey to rock India.

Moises Henriques batted beautifully for his 62 off 46, as he combined with Travis Head (48 off 34) to take the game away from India in Guwahati.

Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan returned to the team in Ranchi after opting out of the ODI series and showed glimpses of good touch with a couple of classy boundaries during the run chase.
