Nathan Coulter-Nile and Glenn Maxwell make the difference in low-scoring thriller

The two read pitches can do strange things. Long tails can do strange things. Visakhapatnam was designed to create two free low-scoring thrillers, and ultimately, Australia had a tough competition among two imperfect teams.
The last ball came down to the end, two runs needed and Pat Cummins, who delivered the previous delivery to the cover boundaries, torn a wide full toss and kept his head in order to complete his head. Umesh Yadav has sent a good ball to the blockhole, and Cummins has long bowled under the ground, knowing that it was too deep for the spinner outside the boundaries and cut the second run.
It's probably that should not have come. At one stage, Australia needed 38 runs in 40 balls and 38 runs with 56 and 31 runs in the order of two batsmen. But Glenn Maxwell, who did not pick up his shot intelligent, he looked great from Eugheshendra Chahal. This ball was a recipe for repeat success against Maxwell when Australia toured India for a limited-overs series and again Maxwell broke his big hit and was out for a long time.

From there, the combination of tight bowling, inexperience (Peter Handscomb T20I debuted, Ashton Turner was only playing his fourth game) nerves (a terrible mix-up cost D'Arcy short of 37 wickets) and Australia's lack of batting depth (they have four frontline Quick and expert selects leg-spinner, which means Nathan Coulter-Nile is their number 7) India is directly involved in cricket Riye she said.
By playing the first international, Mayank Markande gave only five in the 18th over. Jasprit Bumrah played a wonderful knock of 19 in the 12th over of Australia and bouncing out Handscomb and cleared the Coulter-Blue with leg stump yorker.
Cummins and Jhye Richardson, two fast bowlers, who still did not face a ball, needed 14 runs in the last over, both showed clear head in the pressure and Umesh was less than that.
Australia played an important role in quick batting, stopping India by 126 runs, they were the very key. India started well, KL Rahul's ball was freed by the side of the side and his arm with chilies on the off-side border. Powerplay Virat Kohli looked brilliant at his first competitive match in almost a month and added 55 runs for the second wicket with 55 runs in the second wicket.
Adam Zampa was unbeaten on 9 runs but started the side slide from Kohli. Rishabh Pant was run out by a big cat athleticism in the rear of Jason Behrendorff and kept a painful length in the Coulter-Nile - not enough for the drive, not enough to drag - and got the ball to stop the unexpected things. Pitch Over one over and Rahul caught at mid-wicket, another cut for bowling Dinesh Karthik, and then spoiled his wicket, the wicket of Krunal Pandya.
With 100 runs in 6, India could have remained five overs short, without MS Dhoni's ability to perform a remote batting line-up. Shortly before the boundary has dried up, and now Dhoni has begun to deny the field of deep fielders. It was an intelligent idea since it is necessary to strike as much as possible to try and capitalize on the rare loose ball or to make a boundary from somewhere. Coulter-Nile, Richardson and Cummins, however, hit the pitch on that length, kept the ball off or the skid, and did not give much to save a full toss from the cover boundaries in Final Over
