India won the rain-hit first T20I after overcoming Australia by nine-wickets in Ranchi. A Meteorological official was quoted in a PTI report saying, "The forecast is possibility of thunderstorm accompanied with rain today (Thursday) and a light to moderate rain tomorrow".

The city has been receiving good rainfall nearly on a daily basis for about a week, throwing normal life out of gear.

The umpires decided the outfield at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium was unfit for play within an hour of the scheduled start of play, much to the disappointment of the 30,000-strong crowd. However, Curator YL Chandrasekhar said the recent rain has not affected the wicket. According to sources, pedestal fans had been used on the eve of the match to dry the outfield.

For the first time in this limited-overs tour, Australia are on an even footing with India, having bounced back to level the three-match T20I series at 1-1 after losing the ODI series 1-4.

It was a painful wait for the spectators who turned up for the first ever T20 global at the venue.
