India take on Australia in the first T20I of the three-match series starting in Ranchi on Saturday. The hosts won the five-ODI series 4-1 and would now look to dominate the shortest format too. For India, all players are in good touch and the team wears a balanced look. There are some changes to the squad as Shikhar Dhawan, Ashish Nehra, Dinesh Karthik are picked while Ajinkya Rahane, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami miss out. R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja continue to be away from international duties and the pair will turn turn out for the respective states in the Ranji Trophy 2017. Lot at stake for Australia as they eye positive results in the sub-continent. Anything can happen in this format but the visitors need to be on top of their game against a formidable Virat Kohli-led unit.
