Australia beat India on Tuesday by 4 wickets in the first T20I of the three-match series played at PCA Stadium in Mohali.

The Aussie batters chased down a mammoth total of 209 after captain Aaron Finch won the toss and opted to field first.

Indian pace attack looked lame with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4-0-52-0), Harshal Patel (4-0-49-0) Umesh Yadav (2-0-27-2), Hardik Pandya (2-0-22-0) giving away runs and India failing to defend their grand score.

Cameron Green (61) and Matthew Wade (45*) were the standout batters from the Australian camp.

India- 208/6 in 20 overs (Hardik Pandya 71 not out, KL Rahul 55; Nathan Elis 3/30, Josh Hazlewood 2/39) vs Australia.
