T20 : India beats Australia by 37 runs

No one outside the top three reached 20, as Australia squandered a promising start of 1-89, in pursuit of a target of 189.

Australia's reply with the bat began soundly with Finch and David Warner taking 47 runs from the initial five overs before the latter fell for 17.

"I allowed us to get too far behind the rate from the start", Finch said.

While identifying a catching problem, Finch believed a solution was close at hand.

While Smith's innings came to an end while chatting to the commentary team, earlier in the day Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy flourished when mic'ed up. India were back with two mainstream spinners for the first time since the Brisbane ODI, but they also had a completely fresh pace attack with Ashish Nehra, playing his first game in an India T-shirt since March 2011, partnering newcomers Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah in the pace department.

A growing legend in the game, Kohli's captain MS Dhoni puts his prowess down to calculating curiosity and inner drive.

His unbeaten 90 - from just 55 balls - continues Kohli's love affair with Adelaide Oval.

At the Adelaide Oval, Kohli has scored four centuries in all three formats and a half-century as well. And now 90 not out in his first T20 match at the ground.

David Warner has counselled his teammates to shelve a few of their big shots before the journey to the World Twenty20, after a succession of intemperate strokes led to a heavy loss in their short-form opener against India in Adelaide.

Virat Kohli and his enraged sendoff to Steven Smith has made a lot of news lately. I think it's good pressure to have that in your squad.

But seriously, captain. What's Kohli's secret? "At the moment, we'll wait and see how he goes in the T20 format", he said. Veteran pacer Jhulan Goswami, Shikha Pandey and Anuka Patil also picked up a wicket each in a consistently tight bowling performance. But at the same time he looks to hit in front of the wicket, that always give him the chances of being successful.

"He is someone who reads the game very well". "We intend to play fearless cricket". There's no point. I've smashed you enough in my life. The process is important because it helps you win games.

Finch admitted that poor fielding let the team down. He's a great player off the back foot.

"And when you're looking at trying to restrict his scoring, the way he's so good with his wrists it means he can just get it into gaps". Hammered for 18 runs in his first over, Ashwin in an earlier avatar would have tried a little too hard and in the process probably done something stupid.

"And that is what makes him such a great player".

India former skipper Sunil Gavaskar said that the way Indian team played the last match with Australia as part of the three match T20 series, looks like the team is shaping up nicely and that they look like the favorites to win the upcoming World T20 tournament.
