India will play Australia in the first T20 International at the JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi tonight. The Australians will be looking to bounce back from the crushing 4-1 defeat to India in the 5 match ODI series that concluded last week. At the same time, India will be looking to pile further misery upon the Kangaroos.
Let us get straight into the Team News.
India Team News
Shikhar Dhawan is back in the Indian squad after opting out of the ODI series due to personal reasons. He is expected to open the batting with Rohit Sharma. Ashish Nehra is also back in the squad but it is unclear if he will make it into the starting XI in Ranchi tonight. Chahal and Kuldeep are expected to be selected although it is unclear if Axar Patel will get a chance.
Probable XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal.

Australian captain Steven Smith has been ruled out of the India series with a shoulder injury. David Warner will lead the side in his absence. Elsewhere, Moises Henriques, Tim Paine, Jason Behrendoff, Andrew Tye and Daniel Christian have been added to the Australian T20I squad.
Probable XI: David Warner (c), Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Dan Christian, Tim Paine (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jason Behrendorff, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa.
