ICC T20 World Cup 2022: KL, SKY’s 50s Help India Post Big Score in 1st Warm Up Match Against Australia

IND Vs AUS 1st innings updates

The top two contenders for this World Cup are here! India and Australia are squaring off in a warm up match. Both teams are playing to their full potential. Australia won the toss and elected to field first. India batting first has scored 186 for 7. Let us look at IND Vs AUS 1st innings updates in detail.

India Scores 186 in 1st Innings

The Men in Blue put up a difficult total in their opening warm-up match of the championship competition. KL Rahul gave them a thrilling start with his fifty off just 27 balls. But Australia somewhat slowed things down following the powerplay. Virat and Rohit made a couple boundaries, but they were unable to fully capitalize on this practice match. Rahul gave India a great start, and Suryakumar’s superb 50-ball innings provided the ideal finishing touch.

Kane Richardson was the best bowler for Australia, taking four wickets while bowling a fairly economical stint. Due to Cummins and Stoinis’ pricey ball handling, India was able to go closer to such a high total.

Kane Richardson’s 4 for 30

Kane Richardson talked about what he thought about the innings. He says “I think it was the first time he missed the middle of the bat against us. He’s one of the best batters in the world at the moment (on Surya Kumar Yadav), so it was good taking him. I’m not expecting to start, but if anything happens with form or injury, I could be in, just happy to be out in the middle today.”

“The atmosphere is really nice, we’ll go out there and enjoy our stint in the middle, the sun is out and it’s a good batting pitch. Disappointed to play in front of an empty stadium, we usually have it filled for games against India”

What’s Ahead?

The hosts, who are also the defending champions, were in cruise control when they lost the previous series against India and England. But Australia does have a tendency to play their best in major competitions. India, on the other hand, has a significant gap to fill. The injury to Bumrah allowed Mohammad Shami, who had previously been excluded from the T20 setup, to make a comeback. What follows ahead in the defence by the bowlers will excite the fans.
