Earlier in the day, Australia, after winning the toss, chose to bat first, but their innings didn't go as planned. The visitors found themselves in dire straits at 119 for five in the 30th over, thanks to India's disciplined bowling display.

Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja played a pivotal role in India's bowling attack, finishing with figures of 3/38. His precise middle-over bowling inflicted crucial damage to Australia's batting lineup.

Among the Australian batsmen, Steven Smith top-scored with 46 off 71 balls, while David Warner contributed 41 runs from 52 balls.

Despite India's initial setback in the run chase, their resolute fightback and clinical bowling performance saw them emerge victorious in the tournament's opening match.
