Australia defeated Team India by four wickets in the first Twenty20 International of the series on Tuesday in Mohali. Indian bowlers, particularly the speed attack, had a lackluster performance despite being allowed to bat first. The reigning world champions were able to chase down the goal with four balls to spare despite India’s impressive 208/6 in 20 overs. For the first time in his T20I career, Cameron Green started the innings, scoring 61, while Matthew Wade played an outstanding finishing role, ending undefeated on 45 to lead Australia to victory.

When Axar Patel and Umesh Yadav worked together to take four wickets between overs 10 and 14, they removed a dangerous-looking Green along with Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, and Jos Inglis, inflicting some damage to Australia’s run-chase. Smith and Maxwell were both caught-behind and dismissed by Umesh in the same over.

Karthik took Maxwell’s catch, but he didn’t seem to ask for a review at the time, and Rohit playfully pulled the wicketkeeper’s neck, perhaps in frustration at Karthik’s ambiguity over the DRS decision. A former Indian star named Robin Uthappa, who played with both Rohit and Karthik, discussed the incident during the post-game debate on Star Sports after the video went popular on social media.

Karthik sometimes has a propensity to get “relaxed,” according to Uthappa, so Rohit was wise to caution him. “Dinesh sometimes becomes a little too laid back. If he is aware that the batter is out, he calms down. But what Rohit Sharma did was commendable; he forewarned him and advised him to at least appeal.

The selection of Karthik over the young wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant in the Team India playing XI has attracted a lot of attention. Many cricket fans and ex-players also took issue with Karthik’s batting position in the first T20I; the wicketkeeper-batter entered the field at number 7 below Axar Patel and was out after five deliveries.
