Smith ruled out of India T20Is due to shoulder problem

India triumphed in a rain reduced opening T20I against Australia in Ranchi by nine wickets to seize the advantage in the series. Chasing a revised target of 48 in 6 overs after Australia scored 118 for 8 in 18.4 overs, India reached the target in 5.3 overs.

After the action-packed ODI series, the focus now shifts to the ticket-selling format of the game, i.e., the T20 matches. India won the five-match series 4-1.

Australia lost the fifth ODI in Nagpur by seven wickets as India completed a 4-1 series win over the world champions to reclaim the number one spot in the ICC rankings. The wicket of Rohit Sharma by Coulter-Nile did give Australia some hope but Kohli came in and ensured there were no further hiccups and he along with opener Shikhar Dhawan took India to victory with three balls to spare.

Paceman Jason Behrendorff is likely to make his long-awaited global debut, while Andrew Tye, who replaced Pat Cummins (rested), is among four quicks in the squad.

It's Warner's third match as T20 captain having won both games as skipper on Australia's tour of Sri Lanka past year. "We need to keep the ground buzzing", the rookie pacer said. There is a forecast for scattered thunderstorms on the afternoon of the match day but the 7 pm start is unlikely to be hampered.

Australia said all-rounder Marcus Stoinis will take Smith's place in the T20 squad for the three-match series and David Warner will captain the side.

Smith is a doubt for the first match in the three-game series as he is struggling with a shoulder problem, Cricket Australia confirmed. Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, the playing XI squad showcased excellent performances in all matches, except the fourth ODI. The rise of Hardik Pandya, the guile of the wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal had made life hard for Australia in the one-day series. While the decision makers have a strong case that lasting through a 5 match Test series can become gruelling, the result is a lack of intensity in their other global matches when one of the teams play sans their top players.
