India v Australia, 2017 2nd T20I: Who Said What

Beherendorff dreams of Tests after T20 win

India take on Australia in the second of the three-match T20I series at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati, which is all set to host its first global fixture on Tuesday, October 10.

After rain hit Saturday's Twenty 20 between India and Australia at the JSCA International Stadium Complex, the host country chased the Kangaroos' revised 48 run target and won the match in the last over at the loss of one wicket. "But if you got through the new ball, you could score", he said of the Barsapara Satdium that hosted its first worldwide game.

India, who outplayed Australia to win the five-match ODI series 4-1, are now leading the three-match Twenty20 series 1-0.

However, spinners Yuzvendra Chahal (0-29) and Kuldeep Yadav (0-46) failed to make further in-roads as Henriques and Head found the boundary with punctuated regularity.

Manish Pandey (6) slashed an outside edge to Tim Paine before a stunning catch from the backpedalling stand-in captain David Warner secured Behrendorff's fourth wicket of the match. "It's an experience, I would love to have", said Behrendorff, who plays in the Big Bash for Perth Scorchers.

Behrendorff bowled a single over in the last match, conceding five runs without any success.

Behrendorff later dismissed Manish Pandey (6) in his second over to left India reeling at 16/3 in 2.2 overs and gave Australia a ideal start as the visitors aim to level the series.

Henriques was the more destructive of the two, as the right-hander brought up his second T20I half century by clobbering Kuldeep for two successive maximums ending India's hopes.

India went in with an unchanged side. It was followed by a record-breaking delivery to Virat Kohli getting him out for a duck for the first time in T20Is.

Kedar Jadhav (27) and MS Dhoni (13) put on 33 runs for the fifth wicket. Hardik Pandya proved to be the missing link, India desperately wanted since the downslide of Irfan Pathan and he seems to repay their faith with solid performances with both bat and the ball.
