Indian bowlers came to the fore as Virat Kohli‘s men beat Australia by nine wickets in a rain-curtailed match at the JSCA Cricket Stadium in Ranchi on Saturday.
Australia’s batting woes continued as they failed to read Kuldeep Yadav‘s left-arm wrist spin once again and the Chinaman finished with figures of 2/16 in 4 overs. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah (2/17) and Yuzvendra Chahal (1/23) also played their part to perfection.
With this victory, the ‘Men in Blue’ have now taken a 1-0 lead in the three-match series and the second match will be played in Guwahati on Tuesday.
