India vs Australia Live Score and Commentary

INDIA WIN!



As it had been during the ODI series, rain came in to truncate the game, but the Indians looked in complete control on either side of the shower breaks.



The spinners made regular incisions on the middle order, the pacers played their part to keep the pressure and the Australian innings just couldn't get going, despite a below par fielding performance by the home team.



The 48-run target wasn't much of a challenge, and despite the loss of Rohit early, the runs were lapped up quickly to keep India's good form intact.



The next T20I will be held at Guwahati on Tuesday, and we'll be back with live ball-by-ball commentary of the game. Till then, it is a goodbye from Vignesh Ananthasubramanian and Aadya Sharma.
