India beat Aussies by 9 wickets in rain-hit T20

Steve Smith is in doubt for Australia's first T20 global against India with a shoulder injury.

He was only able to train for 20 minutes in the nets on Friday before he was forced to stop and Cricket Australia have now confirmed his tour has come to an end.

"Smith landed awkwardly on his right shoulder while diving in the field during the fifth ODI against India last Sunday", team doctor Richard Saw stated in a press release by Cricket Australia.

The extended rain-delay caused the umpires to call-off Australia's innings as India will be set a revised target under the Duckworth Lewis method when play restarts.

Opener and vice-captain David Warner will lead the squad in the three match T20I series in Smith's absence.

Australia's batsmen had a dire time coping with a slow and low surface at the JSCA International Stadium and never recovered from the early muddle, eventually conceding the first T20I by nine wickets to India.




After a 4-1 defeat to India in the One-Day International series, the onus is on Australia to not let the hosts get on a roll again. It was far from the picture David Warner, Australia's stand-in captain, had pictured when he was asked to bat and expressed his inclination to do the same. Aaron Finch (42) continued to play positively as Australia ended the powerplay at 49 for one. When Kane Richardson was missing in the 5th ODI, the lack of intensity was manifested in the bowling department as spells from Cummins & Coulter Nile alone couldn't enforce the pressure on India.

In the three ODIs they opened the batting, they put on first-wicket stands of 70, 231 and 66.

Glenn Maxwell couldn't play himself into form, struggling for his 17.

"It was very unfortunate for James and he's been working really hard to get back", Behrendorff said in Ranchi on Thursday.

"Finchy and Davey Warner are probably two of the better T20 opening batsman in the world so I'd expect they would probably open".

"I think Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma will open in the T20Is".
