Mohali: Australia has won the first T20I against India by 4 wickets in the three-match series after the powerful knocks of Cameroon Green (61) and Matthew Wade (45*).
During the match, Steve Smith had belted a six and a four off successive deliveries from Umesh Yadav, he tried disturbing the bowler’s line by moving across. Umesh though followed him and the Australian then went for a cheeky dab to the third man.
Hilarious reaction of Rohit Sharma
All the 33-year-old managed was an edge which was caught by wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik. But the on-field umpire gave it as not out even though the bowler and the wicketkeeper seemed convinced it was out.

India captain Rohit Sharma then went for the DRS and Ultra-edge showed a spike, sending Smith on his way back to the dressing room. But the Australian seemed to be pretty disappointed by the call or maybe was unhappy with himself since he was batting quite well having reached 35 with the help of three fours and a six.
The cameras caught his reactions and then panning to Rohit who seemed to have enjoyed the breakthrough.
Bowlers weren’t quite there – Rohit Sharma
Rohit pointed out the mistakes India made with the ball and on the field, dropping three catches.
“I don’t think we bowled well. 200 is a good score to defend, and we didn’t take our chances in the field. It was a great effort from our batters, but bowlers were not quite there. There are things we need to look at, but it was a great game for us to understand what went wrong,” he said.
The second T20I of the three-match series will be played on Friday in Nagpur.
