Indian cricket team defeated Australia by eight wickets in their final T20 World Cup warm-up match at the ICC cricket academy ground in Dubai on Wednesday.
After Aaron Finch opted to bat first, the decision proved crucial as India took three wickets of Australia with 11 runs.
David Warner's barren run continued after a failed attempt at a reverse sweep had him trapped in front of Ravichandran Ashwin.
In the next ball itself, Mitchell Marsh was out by Ashwin, he played for the turn which wasn't there only to edge it to the first slip.
Later Ravindra Jadeja had Finch lbw with a slider off his very first ball, leaving Australia with a lot of work to do.
Steve Smith (57 off 48) and Glenn Maxwell (37 off 28) made a 61-run partnership. After Maxwell fell to a conventional sweep, Smith and Marcus Stoinis (41 not out off 25 balls) got together and provided a much-needed final flourish to the innings.
This shows, Practice makes a man perfect and that could be seen in India's batting. All of them have had a lot of practice in the Indian T20 League and are now well versed with the conditions.
KL Rahul continued his brilliant form as he put on a 68-run partnership with Rohit Sharma at the top.
Rahul fell, but Sharma kept on getting better and better as he notched up a half-century and retired soon after. Suryakumar Yadav at the other end played some extraordinary shots and Hardik Pandya added the finishing touches.
Australia will now look to find the right balance and get back on track in their first match of the tournament.
