    As it happened: India vs Australia, One-off T20 at Rajkot

    Rohit (8), Raina went (19), Dhawan (32) and Kohli (29) departed but India kept up the scoring rate chasing a big score.

    The lone Twenty20 between India and Australia at Rajkot on Thursday will serve as a perfect appetizer before the main course - the seven-match ODI series, starting on Sunday. And choice of the venue to kick off a much-awaited tour couldn't have been better as the spectators will throng Rajkot's Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, where runs and entertainment are expected to flow in equal measure - provided it doesn't rain.

    The only match staged at the venue, an ODI between India and England at the beginning of this year, yielded 641 runs with just 13 wickets going down, and Thursday's contest is expected to deliver a similar run-feast.
