Bhuvneshwar Kumar: Early wickets of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli hurt India

Playing only his second T20I game, Aussie pacer Jason Behrendorff has done which no other bowler able to do so in the past, dismissing Kohli for duck in his 48th innings. So did Mitchell Starc.

For the first time in the ongoing limited-overs series, Australia beat India in all the departments.

Behrendorff announced himself on the global stage in style after his sensational and match-winning spell of 4-21 off his four overs. Actually, he could have got one more over had Australia been aware of the change in rules.

The 27-year-old showed why he is one to keep an eye on after wreaking havoc in only his second global appearance for his country. India were skittled out for 118 in 20 overs. A debut do-over, if you will. The crowd, and press box, made up of several excited local journalists, rise to their feet, while Behrendorff has to think on his before this game gets away from him, and Australia, again.

Given the new ball, Jason trapped the aggressive Rohit Sharma for eight off his fourth ball.

India made a fighting start in defence of the meager total, as Jasprit Bumrah (1/25) and Bhuvneshwar (1/9) removed risky openers David Warner (2) and Aaron Finch (8) cheaply. As Dhawan lofted a drive high over Warner's head at mid-off, the Australian turned and sprinted towards the boundary, turning his head skywards on several occasions to track the path of the ball.

Behrendorff landed the ball on length as Kohli looked to flick it on the leg for a run.

In his second over, Manish Pandey nudges one down to third man for four. Full and pitching in line, just moving back in, this is the straightest delivery Behrendorff has bowled thus far and it hits the pad right in front of middle. "It feels great. As I said at the toss, we had to bowl well and start well".

"Unbelievable feeling", said Behrendorff after the match on Tuesday (October 10). It was the ideal kind of wicket for the line and length he bowled, You need to be a bit fortunate to get three or four wickets in the T20s.

Behrendorff is all smiles and crinkled eyes throughout the media interaction. On top of that, he is the captain of the squad and is also the holder of some of the biggest records in global cricket.

Come to think of it, Behrendorff doesn't seem like the unsmiling sort even during a match. Some guys enjoy that and that's what fires them up and gets them going.
