Australia Vs India First T20: Game Changer
Yuzvendra Chahal came into the bowl as a concussion substitute for Ravindra Jadeja. That was a game-changer as he took three wickets.
T. Natarajan also bowled well and he picked three wickets as well.
The match was quite interesting to watch and had many interesting moments. But, there was a lack of professional fielding from the Indian side as a couple of catches were dropped and a misfield cost the team 4 extra runs. They need to improve on this in the upcoming matches.
