That's all we have for you here from Guwahati, but there is plenty happening elsewhere in the world of sport. The Indian football team will have a chance to qualify for the AFC Asian Cup when they take on Macau tomorrow night. Head right over to to follow that, as well as the ongoing FIFA Under-17 World Cup

Jason Behrendorfff is Man of the Match, for his 4 for 21. There were 17 dots in his 24 balls. "Not too often I get in front of the cameras. Its something I've got to work on. Nice to get one over on debut but obviously we lost then. It's something I've been working hard at, putting on a brave face out there and not looking nervous. India are a very class team, nice to take wickets up front and giving the team a good start. Honour to play for my country and looking forward to doing it again"

"Feels great. As Isaid at the toss, we had to bowl well and start well. And Dorff bowling there, taking four for in his first real spell. Really fantastic. he's got the height, the bounce and the swing. He's from Perth. He was really fantastic," David Warner says. "Zampa did well later as well, his execution was spot on. Henriques, he showed his experience. I've used him in this role in the IPL as well. It looked an English wicket, soft and with moisture. We knew if we could get past the new ball we could do well

"Not the performance we wished for. Australia were much better on the day,"Virat Kohli says. "I don't think we were good enough with the bat. The wicket was bit sticking to start. It was difficult for them as well, but after the dew set in, they got away. The effort is to do that as a team, but we speak about when the situations are not in our favour is when we have to put 120% on the field. It;s the attitude that matters most and it's something the team embraces. The ball to Rohit [from Behrendorff] was pretty good. He bowled in good areas, he was pretty tight, credit to him, getting wickets with the new ball and they built on that very well"

10.05 pm That's a statement from Australia, and there were plenty, right from the start when Jason Behrendorff took out Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the very first over to claim 4 for 21. Then when David Warner pulled off a blinder of a catch, turned around and screamed his delight at the crowd. When Moises Henriques and Travis Head weathered the early burst from Bhuvneshwar Kumar and then began mauling India's two wristspinners. It's been a complete performance from Australia, but it took a while coming: this is their first T20I win over India in eight matches

"Good win. Thought the bowleres bowled really well to keep them to 118. We knew it would be tough though and it was in the first six overs, but it got easier as the ball got older," Henriques says. "When you're chasing those small targets, and Head came out and hit a couple of boundaries, it took pressure off me. Then I just had to hang in there and prevent a collapse. Wicket suited the fast bowlers, and it wasn't doing anything for the spinners. I was supposed to bat at three, if there were early wickets. Last game we had a good start, so I slipped down the order"

"Haven't been doing that through the ODI series. Worked hard at batting and it came off today," Head says. "Just about being positive about the way I think, hitting the boundary riders and putting pressure on the bowlers. We played fantastically today, bowlers did really well. Good spirits going to Hyderabad and looking forward to winning the series"

Rohit Ramanatha: "India has lost 9 of the 17 matches in guwahati with this!! and won only 6"

Dhaval : "That unused review [appeal for caught behind against Henriques] has cost India dearly. But we all know it's a part and parcel of the game. The series is well set now for a finale."

Sid Sid: "Kuldeep though an exciting prospect and also picking up crucial wickets has not by any means been economical. Chahal on the other hand has shown greater control also being attacking at the same time. Time to "rotate" Kuldeep has come..may be"

15.3YS Chahal to MC Henriques, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, pummels it down the ground and that's Australia's victory!.
15.2YS Chahal to MC Henriques, 2 runs, full and outside off, spears it out to deep point.
15.1YS Chahal to TM Head, 1 run, top-edges the sweep, but there is no one around to threaten it until Pandya runs to his left from deep square leg.
15.1YS Chahal to TM Head, WIDE, 1 run, pushes it very wide outside off, so Head lets it go and accepts the extra.

Prathik Roy: "Can I just say I am so happy to see my fellow Indian supporters to be so chilled out with the match despite it not going in our favor. This Indian time has come a long way and one match does not change anything. True we have a lot to prove overseas but best cross that bridge when we come to it!"

aditya: "India should probably bowl Jadhav now and have Dhoni say "nice gary" every time he gets the ball to do something weird. Just to get under the skin of the Aussies. :P "

Amit d: "India needs 6 bowlers in Long run. May be pandey should be replaced by Ashwin or R Jadeja, then this would be a more balanced team."

Saurabh: "Chahal's next 2 overs are going to be crucial...if he can pick up a couple of wicket s, the game could get interesting or else India is losing this conformatbl"

Saurabh nigam: "I think the dew will render the spinners ineffective and with that indias chances as well"

James: "Isn't it Kohli's call whether to review, not Dhoni's? I know you take advice from senior players, but you go with your instinct." I think that's India's protocol though. And he is, usually, a pretty good judge on when to go upstairs, whereas Kohli is a little too excitable

Phani: "Now that Kohli has consumed 3 overs each of pacers, a lot depends on how Pandya goes. If he can manage pressure, we are for a riveting finish."

Replays seem to suggest there was a nick when Bhuvneshwar bowled to Henriques in the last over - ball 4.5 when they asked the umpire for a caught behind. Kohli wanted to review, but Dhoni shook his head
