Ranchi (Jharkhand), Oct 7: In a major blow to Australia, skipper Steve Smith has been ruled out of the upcoming three-match T20 series against India due to a shoulder injury.

Paceman Jason Behrendorff will make his long-awaited worldwide debut in Australia's T20 against India in Ranchi tonight. Chahal's victim was Glenn Maxwell who punched it straight to Bumrah at short midwicket. It's that 3-0 loss that Australia will look at keenly to draw some inspiration. I would have loved to score a lot more runs.

It's Warner's third match as T20 captain having won both games as skipper on Australia's tour of Sri Lanka previous year.

Warner, who slammed two consecutive boundaries in the over by Bhuvneshwar, was sent back to pavilion for mere eight runs in the fifth ball.

Aaron Finch (42) and Glenn Maxwell (17) put on 47 runs for the second wicket. Instead, the likes of Tim Paine, Jason Behrendorff, Daniel Christian and Andrew Tye take over the reins and therein lies Australia's chance.

Australian captain Steve Smith will return home before the start of the T20I series against India after failing to recover from a shoulder injury.

India have recalled veteran left-arm pacer Ashish Nehra as he joins Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah in the pace-bowling department. However, only two spinners are likely to find a place in the playing XI. Although the hosts endured an early wobble when Rohit Sharma was dismissed, Kohli joined hands with Shikhar Dhawan to ease their nerves, propelling India to a clinical 9-wicket triumph.

Vice-captain David Warner would lead Australia in the Twenty20 series, while all-rounder Marcus Stoinis would replace Smith in the squad, Cricket Australia added in a statement.

The visitors' middle-order failed once again in Ranchi as Travis Head and Moises Henriques fell cheaply to Hardik Pandya and Yadav respectively. The rise of Hardik Pandya, along with the guile of the two wrist spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal made life hard for Australia in the one-day series.

Nathan Coulter-Nile was outstanding in the ODIs and Kane Richardson also impressed.
