Cricket News: IND vs AUS 1st T20 Twitter Reactions: Suryakumar Yadav 82 & Josh Inglis 110 in thriller | Reactions to IND vs AUS 1st T20 2023

There were question marks around the timing of this five-match T20I series so soon after a World Cup. However, the first match delivered, with India and Australia contesting a thriller in front of a full house at Visakhapatnam.

Suryakumar Yadav provided a reminder of just how good he is in the T20 format. The captain got the chase going with an excellent 42-ball 80, in partnership with Ishan Kishan (58 off 39 balls) to take India to 134/3 in the 13th over after being reduced to 22/2 ten overs earlier. He hit nine fours and four sixes in his innings, with runs all over the wicket as we have become accustomed to from SKY over recent years.

Then, despite a strong finish from Australia’s bowlers, Rinku Singh hit a last-ball six which didn’t end up counting as Sean Abbott overstepped. The hit sparked recollections of his exploits in the IPL earlier this year. Incredibly, Singh has hit 330 runs when batting second in T20s in 2023 at an average of 111.00 and strike rate of 170.98.

Earlier, Josh Inglis played a blinder. He went on a rampage, smashing the equal-fastest T20I century by an Australian off 47 balls to lead the team towards 200. Inglis also wowed the crowd and viewers with shots all over the wicket, with his proficiency against spin certainly a positive for Australia. Indeed, this may be the period where Inglis truly announces himself on the world stage after his crucial innings in the semi-final against South Africa where he played spin well on a turning pitch.

In the end, Mukesh Kumar’s final over, which went for just five, proved vital.
