New Delhi:

In the nail-biting encounter, it was Australia who held their nerves to clinch a superlative victory. Australia wins the first game by 3 wickets to take a 1-0 lead in a two-match T20 series.

India started the innings on a quiet note, having been able to score just one of the first over. However, India upped the scoring rate smashing two boundaries of the second over.  In the third over, India lost their vice-captain, Rohit Sharma, as he tried to play a scoop to Jason Behrendorff and wasn't able to time it to perfection. After first five overs, the game slightly tilts in favour of Australia with India managing to score 38 for 1 in 5 overs. (LIVE SCORECARD)

In the next leg, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli put up a partnership of over 50 runs before Virat Kohli departed. His departure led Rishabh Pant to the crease, and India had left-right and combination at the crease for the first time. However, as soon as India was going ahead in the game, Behrendorff produced a brilliant piece of fielding effort to send Pant back to the pavilion. After the first half of Indian innings, India is 80 runs for the loss of 3 wickets. (LIVE SCORECARD)

After the first 10 overs, India lost two wickets in quick succession, putting Australia ahead in the game. Losing KL Rahul and Dinesh Karthik, Krunal Pandya further dented India's batting order. From here, the road is only looking tougher. However, MS Dhoni is still at the crease, who is also India's last hope. In the last five overs, India managed to score just 20 runs. (LIVE SCORECARD)

Nathan Coulter Nile has been the pick of the bowler picking three main wickets to haunt India's batting. From being 80 runs for the loss of 2 wickets, India was reduced 109 runs for 7 wickets. With Ms Dhoni, the only proper batsman at the crease, India is struggling to rotate the strike and as Dhoni tries to deal in boundaries.  (LIVE SCORECARD)

At the end of India's innings, it wouldn't be wrong to say that the men-in-yellow came with a proper plan to give India a tough time in the middle. Except for Rahul's quick-fire 50, India doesn't have much to be proud of. Having scored 126 runs in their quota of 20 overs, it will be interesting to see bowlers manage to replicate Aussie's thoughts. (LIVE SCORECARD)

In the second innings, Indian bowlers strike early in the innings, sending in-form Marcus Stoinis and skipper Aaron Finch back to the pavilion. The duo managed to have just 1 run between them. (LIVE SCORECARD)

Chasing a small total, all Australia needed, was a decent start. However, there was a little confusion in the middle which eventually led to a runout. In the next over, Jasprit Bumrah sent Aaron Finch for a golden duck. His departure led Glenn Maxwell to the crease who has already smashed four boundaries in 9 balls so far. His power-packed innings has helped Australia to come back into the game. After 5 overs, Australia is 28 runs for the loss of two wickets. (LIVE SCORECARD)

From being 5 for the loss of 2 wickets, Australians suddenly saw themselves 41 for the loss of 2 wickets at the end of the powerplay - Credit to Glenn Maxwell's clean hitting. Skipper Kohli introduced spin from both end post that, which eventually slowed things a bit. With this, Australia is well in control, scoring 67 runs in 10 overs. (LIVE SCORECARD)

Nathan Coulter-Nile awarded as the man-of-the-match for his dazzling spell of 3/26 in 4 overs.

15 required off last 9 deliveries. Unbelievable bowling by India. 

16 needed off the last two overs. Can India clinch this one?

Krunal Pandya picks his first wicket of the night to send Turner for 0. Australia has now lost half their side. India needs to continue the momentum.

Third run out of the game. This time it's D Arcy Short who pays the price. Is there a twist in this game?

Glenn Maxwell's sixth T20 International fifty led India to be all at sea and at the end of thirteenth over and it looked as if they have already fallen. However, India's wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal came to bowl the fourteenth over and sent Maxwell back to the dressing room. Post this, India has managed to low the scoring rate as Australia see themselves at 98 runs for the loss of three wickets after 15 overs.

Indis lose their first wicket in form of Rohit Sharma. He tried to play a scoop to Jason Behrendorff but wasn't able to time it perfectly. Vice-captain departs for just 5. 

Rohit Sharma takes the strike for the first delivery, and he has been joined with a new opening partner KL Rahul. This remains to be seen if the duo can give India a great start. 

The two teams joined for their respective National anthems, followed by two-minute silence for the CRPF jawans killed in the Pulwama Terror Attack in the district of Jammu and Kashmir. 

So, Mayank Markande replaces Vijay Shankar. Umesh Yadav replaces Bhuvneshwar Kumar while KL Rahul is in place of Shikhar Dhawan.

Australia has chosen to bowl in the Twenty20 International against India in Vizag. Peter Handscomb makes his debut and will keep wickets. Virat Kohli has said he switched off during the break and did not watch much cricket. 

The pitch has plenty of cracks and it will assist spin. India might play three spinners on this track. The team that wins the toss should bat first and set a target in the range of 160.

BREAKING! Mayank Markande, the young wristspinner, will make his debut for India in the Vizag game against Australia. Proud moment for the youngster, who impressed for Mumbai Indians. Peter Handscomb is also making his T20I debut for Australia.

The encounter between two top quality sides is all set to start in less than an hour. With this, the two teams are looking to make their last minute plans ahead of the toss which is scheduled to happen at 18:30 pm (IST). 

What will be the ideal playing XI for both sides? Will we see Mayank Markande making his debut today in Vizag?

Virat Kohli is back. Jasprit Bumrah is back. The Indian team assumes a potent look. Without these two players, the team has still managed to do well.

For India, this series is all about finalising the team composition ahead of the World Cup. For Australia, these are the last 12 international games across formats in which they can fix upon a winning team as they look to enter the World Cup high on confidence.

The last two Twenty20 International series between India and Australia has ended 1-1. Can India secure an outright win this time?

Hello and welcome to the first T20I between India and Australia from the ADA-VDCA stadium in Vizag. Australia have won only once in India and they head into the contest low on confidence. Virat Kohli's side, on the other hand, are high on confidence having achieved success in Australia and New Zealand recently.
