Zampa, Stoinis edge out India in thriller: 1st T20 (Gabba)

Leg spinner Adam Zampa picked up two wickets and Marcus Stoinis bowled a stunning last over as Australia edged India by four runs in a thrilling rain-shortened T20 that went down to the wire.

Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bowl first but sloppy fielding allowed Australia to score 158-4 thanks to an aggressive fourth-wicket stand of 78 between Glenn Maxwell (46) and Marcus Stoinis (33).

A rain delay rain shortened the contest to 17 overs a side. Chasing a revised target of 174 runs, India fell short by just 4 runs. Shikar Dhawan smashed 76. Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik (30 off 13 balls) took 25 off Andrew Tye in the 14th over to bring their side back in contention but India fell short.

Australia 4 for 158 (Maxwell 46, Kuldeep 2-24) beat India 7 for 169 (Dhawan 76, Zampa 2-22) by four runs on DLS method.
