Twitter Reactions: Australia steal a win from India in last ball thriller

australia vs india

Australia clinched a thrilling three-wicket win against India in the first T20I at the Dr Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam on Sunday night.

The game went down the wire with the visitors requiring 14 runs off the final over. Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson showed great composure and helped the Aussies take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series by winning the low-scoring encounter.

It is also India’s first T20I loss at home in eight matches.


Jasprit Bumrah’s penultimate over with just two runs and two wickets turned the game on its head and the Men in Blue looked to be headed towards an unlikely win. But Umesh Yadav’s expensive final over undid all that hard work to hand Aussies the win. Where Bumrah went for two runs, Umesh conceded two boundaries in the over to tip things in Australia’s favour.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the match:
