Australia defeated India by 4 wickets in 1st T20I match at Mohali with the help of brilliant batting performance from Cameron Green and Matthew Wade in the end.

Among Aussie bowlers, Nathan Ellis stunned everyone by picking the key wicket of king Kohli and ended with bowling figure of 3/30 in his quota of 4 overs.
Despite setting a target of 209, India lost the match due to poor bowling effort by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel who ended up conceding 101 runs in their quota of 8 overs without picking a wicket. Axar Patel was the stand out bowler for India who ended up with a terrific bowling figure of 3/17 but unfortunately, his one man effort wasn't enough to stop the Australian batters to go for the kill.
