Steve Smith returns from India tour to give Australia fresh fitness scare

Series: The last time Australia played at the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi was almost seven months ago, the third match of a hotly-contested four-Test series against India which ended 3-1 in India's favour.

Australia meanwhile recalled their T20I specialists Moises Henriques, Daniel Christian, Andrew Tye and Glenn Maxwell. The wily chinaman, on the other hand, cost only 16 runs to the team in his full quota of four overs.

And Australia will now step into a format they haven't been known to be good at.

Finch's cameo was ended by some lovely bowling from Yadav after the Aussie opener was clean bowled attempting to sweep a full and quicker delivery for a 30-ball 42.

Smith is sidelined for the three-game series, with Marcus Stoinis his replacement and David Warner to captain the side, Cricket Australia (CA) confirmed on Saturday.

Fenway Park gates for Game 3 of the ALDS between the Red Sox and Astros open at 12:38 p.m., exactly two hours before game time. But William Evans said Thursday he could not confirm the report and had not been briefed on the matter.

In the next over, Travis Head (9) was clean bowled by Hardik Pandya when the total score was 89 runs. Paine was unable to get his bat down in time as the ball hit the base of middle.

India on Saturday defeated Australia by nine-wickets in rain-hit first T20 match of the three-match series at Ranchi's JSCA (Jharkhand State Cricket Association) Stadium Complex.

The star batsman scored 142 runs in the five ODIs with his team going down 4-1 to slip to third in the rankings behind South Africa and top-ranked India. Kuldeep foxed Moises Henriques and an in-from Aaron Finch. The Indian Skipper Virat Kohli is one of the biggest threat for the visitors.

The bad news for Australian side is, skipper Steven Smith is ruled out of the first T20 match due to an injury. "We want to get better every game", said pacer Jasprit Bumrah ahead of the opening match.

The Indian Cricket Team has been playing extremely well during this 5 ODI and 2 T20 series against Australia. The rise of Hardik Pandya, along with the guile of the two wrist spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal made life hard for Australia in the one-day series. "The ball will come on slowly towards the end".
