For India, Prasidh Krishna (one wicket for 50 runs) and Ravi Bishnoi (one wicket for 54 runs) took one wicket each but both proved to be very expensive. Indian captain Suryakumar Yadav won the toss and decided to bowl first. Australia’s batsmen did not face much trouble on a batting-friendly pitch.

Matthew Short (13) also opened his account with a four on Krishna and then hit two fours on Axar Patel.
