In what was the second T20 international at Guwahati, the Australian bowlers did a stupendous job as they restricted the Indian total to. On the other hand, Indian batsmen had a rare failure in the current series so far as the Australian bowlers capitalized the damp conditions at the newly inaugurated Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati.
Aussie skipper David Warner who won the toss and considering the pitch and the conditions elected to field first. They drafted Jason Behrendorff into their playing XI. As for India, they had an unchanged team from the last game. Batting first, the hosts suffered a major jolt as both Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli were dismissed in the first over by Behrendorff. The wickets continued to fall as Dhawan got out on what was an outstanding catch by skipper Warner as India were left reeling at 27/4.
MS Dhoni ended up getting stumped on a clever ball from Adam Zampa. Kedhar Jadhav made a stellar effort with the bat as he struck some absolutely delightful shots. However, his stay at the crease didn’t last long as he too was bowled by Zampa. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was also dismissed early as India were reduced to 70/7.
That’s when Hardik Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav ensured India had at least 100 runs to defend. While the duo couldn’t do much, they made sure India had something to defend on a difficult and sluggish pitch. India continued to lose wickets in a heap throughout the innings as they got bundled for 118 in what was the last ball of their innings.
The Australian bowlers cashed in on the early wickets and applied pressure on all fronts. Behrendorff was the pick amongst the bowlers with four wickets. Adam Zampa was also splendid as he got a couple of wickets along with being economic. Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andrew Tye and Marcus Stoinis also managed to get a wicket each.
Twitter kept everyone entertained as for a change, it was the Indian batting order that collapsed today. The Australian bowlers were lauded while the Indian batsmen got trolled for their dismal performance today.
Here we present some of the best tweets from the first half of the game:

If all the IPL team owners are Shakti kapoors, Behrendorff right now is Raveena tandon in a wet Saaree.

The greatness in that catch by @davidwarner31 lay in the distance he covered running back. Example of a top fielder making things look easy

Team India just sad by the crackers ban fact & hence such performance as revolt.

Dhawan is not a T20 player. There is enough evidence for that in IPL.

Virender Sehwag is such a pain in the ass in the commentary box, imagine him as a coach or a player. Bullet dodged.

If it were RCB batting in the second innings, definite win for India, even though Yuzi would be missing.
