Australia takes 1-0 lead with close finish

Australia announce team for first two Tests against India

Australia announce team for first two Tests against India

Victorian opener Marcus Harris is one of two new names in the Australian squad for the Test series against India, which starts in Adelaide next month.

Handscomb will be vying for a middle-order batting spot with Travis Head, who was part of the Australia squad that lost a two-test series 1-0 to Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates last month.

India arrived in Australia on the back of a home thrashing of the West Indies, but their form traditionally is more fragile on the road.

Australia has opened their Indian summer with a heart-stopping four-run victory at the Gabba, putting their short-form humiliation at the hands of South Africa firmly in the rearview mirror.

That turmoil hasn't been restricted to the field, with a number of high-ranking staff also gone from the game's national administration since March including coach Darren Lehmann, high-performance manager Pat Howard, chief executive James Sutherland and chairman David Peever.

Adam Zampa said he was "stoked" after getting the Indian captain for cheap, speaking at the post match press conference.

But the visitors didn't get the desired start as Rohit Sharma went cheaply for only seven runs.

Tye finished with figures of 1/47 from this three overs, while Glenn Maxwell (46 from 24) and Chris Lynn (37 from 20) had earlier put Australia on the front foot.

Australia won the first Twenty20 clash on Wednesday and Warne says they must continue to make steps towards following the fallout from the ball-tampering fiasco.




At one stage Australia were 153/3 in 16.1 overs.

'I hear you guys talking about the classic cricket shots but the game's changing guys, ' Khawaja said while commentating with former Test players Adam Gilchrist and Andrew Symonds.

Lynn had hit four sixes, including one that travelled 108m to be caught in the Gabba's top tier, while Aaron Finch (27 from 24) and Stoinis (33 not out from 19) also found the boundary.

'We do play different shots now. Similarly, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav too will look to adjust to the Australian length and pace.

Wants to add death bowling to his repertoire and had the ideal opportunity to showcase his abilities when he was thrown the ball with 13 runs to defend in the final over.

A sloppy India failed to get an ideal start to the Australia tour, losing the rain-hit opening T20 global by four runs at the Gabba here Wednesday.

When quizzed about Cricket Australia's (CA) recent decision to uphold the suspension of Smith, Warner and Cameron Bancroft, the right-hand batsman ducked the question saying, "This is not my place to give an opinion".

Hughes said that a bit of just a good stare, or a couple of words, that's part of the Australian way should be there, and against Kohli they can not become "pussycats".
