Start of Innings
Start of Australia Innings. Welcome to Rajkot. This T20 serves as a curtain raiser to the seven match ODI series. Australia are in a poor run of form in this format having lost six out of their last seven. India haven't played many T20 internationals recently but their players have vast experience of domestic T20. They have won the toss and Australia will bat. Nic Maddinson will open the batting on debut.
