Test hopeful Marcus Stoinis will replace Smith in the T20 squad, while vice-captain David Warner will take over as captain. Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan then ran down the remainder of the target with the help of timely boundaries.

It was when there was a long rain delay as the target for the hosts were reduced to 48 off six overs, a target that won't bother the batting much in a T20I.

Kuldeep Yadav took 2 for 16 to pick up the man-of-the-match award as the Aussies limped to 118-8 off 18.4 overs before rain intervened.

Toss: Virat Kohli, the India captain, won the toss and chose to field against Australia in the first Twenty20 worldwide at Jharkhand State Cricket Association Stadium in Ranchi on Saturday (October 7).

"Smith landed awkwardly on his right shoulder whilst diving in the field during the fifth ODI against India last Sunday.Following the match, he complained of shoulder soreness which has not settled and is restricting his ability to bat and throw", ESPNcricinfo quoted team doctor Richard Saw, as saying.

Meanwhile, the next match of the series will be played in Guwahati on Tuesday.

Aussie opener Aaron Finch, who put up a strong fight, also went down facing the Indian bowling attack.


Australia's batsmen had a dire time coping with a slow and low surface at the JSCA International Stadium and never recovered from the early muddle, eventually conceding the first T20I by nine wickets to India.

Australia's middle-order drastically failed as Travis Head (9), Moises Henriques (8), Daniel Christian (9), and Tim Paine (17) failed to rise to the occasion and were dismissed cheaply.

India vs Australia 1st T20 match is going to be played on 7th October 2017.

He praised his new ball bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah.

All of Indian five bowlers picked wickets in the innings.

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