Rain stoppage clash as India lost the first T20 international against Australia by four runs at the Gabba in Brisbane on Wednesday. Chasing a steep target of 174 runs to win in 17 overs, after Australia’s total of 158/4 (in 17 overs) was revised according to the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern system, India’s response was led by a fighting knock at the top of the order by Shikhar Dhawan.

But the match was brought to life by the duo of Rishabh Pant (20 off 15 balls) and Dinesh Karthik (30 off 13 balls) as they shared a 51-run stand off just 23 deliveries to take the matter into the last over as India needed 13 runs to win.

Stoinis may have snared couple of wickets at the end and also managed to defend 13 off 6 deliveries but Zampa was adjudged the man of the match.
