India's young bowling unit, which has been under the pump, will look to better its death overs performance while utilising Glenn Maxwell's absence to its advantage in the IND vs AUS 4th T20I against Australia on Friday.

India will also look to exploit the absence of a marauding Maxwell who pulled off a heist of sorts to singlehandedly bring Australia back into the five-match series with a win in a last-ball finish in Guwahati.

But the hosts will fancy their chances with Maxwell, and other influential players such as Steve Smith and Adam Zampa not figuring in the playing XI here, having left for home after a long stay in the country where they won their sixth World Cup title recently.

9:30 PM: 107/5 (15)

Tim David gets caught by Jaiswal off Deepak Chahar's off-pace bumper outside off. Despite a six, he struggled to find rhythm against spinners, managing only 19 runs.

8:40 PM: 174/9 (20)

Ravi Bishnoi gets run out after Behrendorff delivers a full ball at the stumps, and Bishnoi flicks it towards deep mid-wicket. Eager to capitalize on the opportunity, he attempts a second run but falls well short of the crease.

8:30: 168/6 (18.5)

Axar finds himself caught by Sangha right on the boundary edge. The top-edge results in Axar's departure. Sangha makes no mistake with the catch. Axar departs, scoring 0 (1), courtesy of Dwarshuis' delivery, caught by Sangha.

7:36 PM: 62/2 (8)

Vice-captain Shreyas Iyer's attempts to hit high ends in disappointment as Sangha lures him into mistiming a delivery, resulting in his wicket.

Chris Green, patrolling the long-on boundary, efficiently moves to his right and snatches a straightforward catch.

7:30 PM: 50/1 (6)

Yashasvi Jaiswal's power-packed innings draws to an end as Hardie outplays him with a well-timed delivery. The ball, delivered with precision around off, bounces awkwardly, leaving Jaiswal play an unwanted shot. The ball, as a result, turns into a lofted shot over mid-on. McDermott, who is stationed strategically, pulls off a comfortable catch.

7:22 PM: 43/0 (5)

Jaiswal plays around with Chris Green's bowling variations, scoring one boundary after another, and a couple of singles, while partner Gaikwad defends the fractionally short ball directed at him.

7:16 PM 24/0 (3)

In Dwarshuis' over, Jaiswal puts batting exploits on display, scoring two exquisite boundaries with an elegant on-drive, a stylish whip over mid-wicket, and confidently defends the remaining deliveries.

7:06 PM: 0/0 (1)

In the opening over, Hardie's delivery to Jaiswal meets with a loud LBW appeal, prompting a review from the TV umpires, but the ball is shown to have pitched just outside leg. A big reprieve for Jaiswal.
