Virat Kohli-led India beat Australia (DLS) in a rain-curtailed match of the three-match T20 cricket series at JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi on Saturday night. After rain forced an early end to Australia’s innings at 118 for 8 in 18.4 overs, India’s target was set at 48 runs in six overs according to the Duckworth Lewis method.

India reached the target in 5.3 overs by losing only one wicket. Captain Virat Kohli scored the highest 22 runs and Kuldeep Yadav was the pick of the bowlers as he finished with the figure of 2 for 16.

India now leads the three-match series 1-0. The hosts will play Australia for the 2nd T20 in Guwahati on Tuesday.
