Behrendorff the catalyst as Australia level T20 series

India’s bowlers struck at regular intervals as they restricted Australia to 118/8

Chasing a paltry 119, Australia initially got a taste of their own medicine from India's new ball pair of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar to be reduced to 13/2. They are yet to complete the T20 series and only one installment has been played out of three wherein India did come out with flying colours. And Dorff bowling there, taking four for in his first real spell. Last ball of the first over of India's innings, another controlled inswinger from the pacer pitched in the good-length area, bounced back off the pads as Behrendorff leaned in to grab the ball. If we talk about the last T20 match then you all know that how easily Indian team dominated the Australian batsman and then bowlers have no chance to defend the total due to heavy rain and unpredictable conditions.

India are Sky Bet's 4/7 favourites to win Friday's series-decider, with Australia available at 11/8. Australia has already lost the ODI series with a big margin of 4-1, if they lose this match they will lose the T20I series too, and will be going home empty handed. Wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav will look to provide brakes on the Australian batting which failed to look lethal in the previous match.

The tourists did not get off to the best of starts as Warner (2) and fellow opener Aaron Finch (8) fell early to Australia on 13/2 after 2.5 overs. That being the only change meant Glenn Maxwell got another go.

"We're left-armers, we both swing it a bit but Mitch bowls a bit quicker than I do", Behrendorff said.

He then had Manish Pandey caught behind for six runs before Shikhar Dhawan became his fourth victim when he was brilliantly caught by stand-in captain David Warner.

Virat Kohli made his debut in the shortest format of the game back in June, 2010 and after playing 52 matches for the country, there was a first for him in India's second T20 match against Australia.
