India vs Australia 1st T20I LIVE Updates: Jasprit Bumrah’s return to international cricket has been delayed as he will not be playing the match at Mohali. Rohit Sharma informed at the toss that the premier paceman will be availabe for the second and third T20Is. Australia captain Aaron Finch has won the toss and opted to bowl against India on Tuesday. No outing for Rishabh Pant too as Dinesh Karthik has been picked. Umesh Yadav has been given a go in Bumrah’s absence. Tim David will be making his T20I debut for Australia. The match begins India’s final phase of preparation ahead of the T20 World Cup. After a disappointing T20 Asia Cup campaign in UAE, Rohit Sharma-led Team India hosts Australia in a three-match T20I series. The hosts will aim for an early lead in the series to get back on the track. On the other hand, Australia have arrived in India after clean sweeping New Zealand 3-0 in an ODI series. They played their most recent T20I series in July — a three-match affair against Sri Lanka that Australia won 2-1. Australia will be playing the series against India without some of their key players, yet both the sides will look this series as a good opportunity to find a balanced squad ahead of T20 World Cup 2022.
