Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to field first, taking the weather conditions into play on an overcast day at Ranchi while Warner quipped that he would have chosen to bat first anyway.

The first game will be played at the Jharkhand States Cricket Association International Cricket Stadium in Ranchi. Yuzvendra Chahal has Glenn Maxwell once again. Gone. Australia 3 down.

Finch, Maxwell hit a four each as Australia score 13 runs in the final over of powerplay.

The Australia skipper had an MRI scan on Friday to assess the injury with soreness hampering him in the lead-up to the series. In all, his first two overs contained just three dot balls and three fours.

Paceman Jason Behrendorff is likely to make his long-awaited worldwide debut, while Andrew Tye, after replacing Pat Cummins (rested), is among four quicks in the squad.

In the last T20I bilateral series, India made a 3-0 clean sweep in Australia in January a year ago while they have lost only once out of the five series played between the two nations.

Shikhar Dhawan returned to the side after missing the ODIs to attend to his ailing wife while Kuldeep Yadav took up the spot of the second spinner instead of Axar Patel.

The rain came down with Australia struggling on 118 for eight in 18.4 overs after being tied down by India's spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. Finch was in two minds; whether to respond with a sweep or play it through the "V".

Cricket Australia confirmed that vice-captain David Warner will stand in as captain for the three-match series, which begins here today.

Allrounders Dan Christian and Moises Henriques have also flown in for the T20 series.

There's no break for Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma, and even MS Dhoni will continue to wicket-keep, even though they have brought in Dinesh Karthik as a stand-in keeper. He, along with Nathan Coulter-Nile - the leading wicket-taker in the ODI series - form Australia's pace battery.
