Twitter Reactions: Australia edge India in a thrilling opening T20I at The Gabba

Posted On / /

Australia pulled off a stunning victory to begin the T20I series against India.

A short rain delay shook up proceedings at The Gabba as Australia accumulated a strong total on the board with the help of Glenn Maxwell (46) and Chris Lynn (37).

Chasing 174 in 17 overs, a thrilling knock of 76 from the opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan couldn’t steer India to victory as the hosts pressured their opponents with a strong display in the field.

It got tight towards the end with the tourists moving from needing 60 from 24 to 13 from the final over, but a brilliant effort at the death from all-rounder Marcus Stoinis ensured the Aussies finished the game victorious.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the match:
