VISAKHAPATNAM, India (AP) — Australia won on the last ball of its first Twenty20 against India for a three-wicket victory on Sunday.
With 14 runs needed off six balls, Umesh Yadav (0-35) conceded two boundaries as Pat Cummins (7 not out) and Jhye Richardson (7 not out) gave Australia the win by scampering home for two runs off the final delivery.
Put into bat, India scored 126-7, with Australia reaching 127-7 in 20 overs.
Lokesh Rahul scored 50 off 36 balls including six fours and a six. Glenn Maxwell's 56 off 43 balls anchored the Australian innings with Jasprit Bumrah's 3-16 from four overs going in vain.
From 89-2, Australia nosedived to 113-7 as India tightened its bowling and fielding.
Jasprit Bumrah struck off successive balls in the 19th over to go past 50 wickets in T20 internationals, only the second India bowler after Ravichandran Ashwin (52) to in this format.
