Australia won the toss and opted to bat first. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammad Shami strike early and Australia was 26-2 soon in 8th over. Alex Carey and Aaron Finch started the proceedings. Carey was out in 7th over when Shikhar Dhawan caught him on the bowling of Mohammad Shami. He scored 18 off 27 balls. In the very next over Bhuvneshwar bowled skipper Aaron Finch. Finch could only score 6 off 19 balls. Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh were on the crease now. Both of them steadied the inning and added 56 runs for the third wicket.
