Blame the D/L method all you want but it is always the better team that wins. India's performance was marked by dropped catches and miss fields, with the bowlers being clobbered by the hosts. During India's batting, Dhawan was the star with 76 runs, followed by a good performance by Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant. Virat Kohli had a miserable day, failing with the bat and messing up his fielding. 

Of course, the Aussies too dropped catches, but the last couple of overs really changed their fortunes. Pant gave away his wicket when he was needed by the team, and then there was a superb bowling effort by Marcus Stoinis.

Game over for India! Australia get their much needed victory as they beat the visitors by 4 runs. A massive, massive victory by the Aussies, getting past their losing streak. More importantly they've taken the lead in the T20 series.

That's two for Stoinnis! Karthik is the victim this time! That's a massive wicket for Australia as Behrendroff takes the catch.

HOT DAMN! What a catch by Glenn Maxwell! Pandya goes after an attempted slog. Maxwell takes a few steps forward and dives to grab the ball. More than the wicket, it is dot ball. Bhuvi replaces Pandya.

Four! Karthik gives us a sigh of relief. Now it's 13 required off the last over!

WTF! Pant scoops the ball in a way that'll give seasoned cricketers the creeps. He guided the ball to Behrendroff and off he goes. Quite unnecessary at this stage of the game. Irresponsible as well. Krunal Pandya is in.

Smashed through cover! Karthik is upping the ante. Four runs! It's 20 runs from 11 balls. It's tight, but doable.

Things are looking brighter now. A couple of hard hits by Pant and Karthik just livened things at Brisbane. A few no balls or wide wouldn't be bad though!

Karthik and Pant have a lot of work to do today. None of them have a good T20 record but that's coz they haven't played as many matches as the rest of the team. Pant has only 8 matches under his belt while Karthik played only 25. Besides keeping their wickets intact, the batsmen will have to score runs quickly as things are getting a bit messy for the men in blue.

OHH! That looked like a spectacular shot but the Gabba has a large field. Dhawan hit the short ball straight to third man. Any other field and that could have been a six. Bad luck Gabbar! Dinesh Karthik replaces him.

Poor, poor shot from Kohli. His first innings in Australia ends with him scoring 4 runs. He never looked comfortable on the pitch and slogged the ball right to the fielder. The Aussies are ecstatic.

Virat Kohli is in to replace Rahul. Will he sledge, or be sledged?

OUT! KL Rahul's promising innings is cut short by a splendid piece of stumping by Alex Carey. Adam Zampa takes the wicket.

Free hit for India! The keeper hit the stumps without the ball in his hand. The bails were off and the umpires judged it a No Ball. That's new!

It's celebration time for Shikhar Dhawan! He hit a six when he was at 43, taking him to 49. The left-hander thought he reached his half-century early and began lifting his bat and fist bumping with Rahul! He finally reached the milestone the next ball! It's a well-deserved fifty for the lad.
