It happened for the fourth time with Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and he couldn’t just stop laughing. In the first India vs Australia T20I played in Ranchi on October 7, Glenn Maxwell lost his wicket to Chahal for the fourth time in this entire bilateral series. He came into bat at number three after stand-in skipper David Warner lost his wicket to Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the first over itself. Maxwell was expected to balance the Aussi inning along with Aaron Finch. However, once again Chahal hunted him down and send him back to pavilion after he scored just 17 runs from 16 balls.
The incident occurred in the 7th over when skipper Kohli brought his in-form wrist spinner into the attack. The third ball bowled by Chahal was short of the length. Maxwell pulled it with full force and instead of playing against ball’s spin, he played it straight towards the mid-wicket region. Jasprit Bumrah was the man present in that area who took the simple catch and helped Chahal removing him once again in this series.

Maxwell’s wicket brought big smiles on the faces of the men in blue and the way Chahal laughed, it seemed like it was pretty hard for him to believe that he had done it again.
Earlier today, the Indian skipper won the toss and elected to bowl first. The Indian bowlers dominated in the first inning right from the first over. No batsman other than Aaron Finch scored even more than 17 runs. Finch continued his good form in the T20I series opener as well. He ended up scoring 42 runs off 30 balls including 1 six and 4 fours.
After 18.4 overs, heavy rain played the spoilsport and game was stopped and Aussies were at 118/8.
