IND vs AUS 1st T20I: India on Tuesday lost to Australia in the first T20I in Mohali as the men in blue failed to defend the target of 208 in the second innings. The match was a high-scoring affair as India first posted a big total but Australia sailed past the Indian team to take a 1-0 in the series. After the Indian bowlers failed to restrict Australia and Bhuvneshwar Kumar yet again got hit in the 19th over, fans took to social media and trolled the 32-year-old Kumar.

A look at some memes shared by fans on Twitter:

Talking about the final few overs of the match, Australia needed 55 runs off 24 balls with Tim David and Matthew Wade at the crease. The Aussie batters first scored 15 runs off Bhuvneshwar's 17th over and then smashed Harshal Patel for 22 runs in the next one. With 18 required in the two overs and Australia having the momentum, Bhuvneshwar Kumar could not bowl a tight 19th over as he leaked 16 runs off it. Yuzvendra Chahal got the final over and took David's wicket but Pat Cummins finished the things.
