Blackout substitute Yuzvendra Chahal accepting 3-25 as India beat Australia by 11 runs in a dubious first Twenty20 in Canberra.

Ravindra Jadeja’s unbeaten 44 off 23 balls helped India recuperate from 92-5 to post 161-7.

He was hit on the cap in the twentieth over however batted on, just to be supplanted by leg-spinner Chahal at the span.

Man of the match Chahal then took 3-25, including chief Aaron Finch for 35 and Steve Smith for 12.

On 20 not out in the penultimate over, Jadeja seemed to endure a hamstring injury and was treated on the pitch by the physio.

On the off chance that a player is supplanted in those conditions, a substitute defender can’t bat or bowl.

Subsequent to edging the second bundle of the last over from Mitchell Starc into his cap, Jadeja added a further 10 runs.

During the stretch Australia mentor Justin Langer was associated with a warmed conversation with coordinate arbitrator David Boon, his previous Australia partner.

After the game India commander Virat Kohli disclosed to Fox Sports that Jadeja “was somewhat lightheaded and still is”.

Finch said the conversation among Boon and Langer occurred when Australia were told Jadeja had been precluded with blackout by the India group specialist.

“You’re not testing a clinical master in such manner,” Finch said.

Australia, who won the one-day arrangement that went before the T20s 2-1, arrived at 56-0 in their interest before Chahal had Finch gotten at long-off and Smith splendidly taken by a plunging Sanju Samson at profound midwicket.

Chahal eliminated Matthew Wade with his last ball, while left-arm seamer T Natarajan got done with 3-30 on his T20 debut.

The second round of the three-coordinate arrangement happens in Sydney on Sunday at 08:10 GMT.

Finch might be an uncertainty with what he portrayed as a “hip or glute” injury that “deteriorated” during the game.
