India coasted to a five-wicket win in the first T20I at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune. Yuvraj Singh who made a significant contribution taking 3 for 19 with the ball shone with the bat as well to score a match turning 38 from 21 balls to set up an easy victory for the hosts. India got to the target of 158 with 13 balls to spare.

It was a terrific start given by Ajinkya Rahane who struck two lovely sixes straight down the ground to provide the initial momentum with his 13-ball 19. Yuvraj Singh made an impact by striking two fours and 3 sixes while taking out left-arm spinner Danny Briggs out of the attack. India had little trouble in getting to the target as partnerships kept on coming and the momentum was sustained.

The match was wrapped up in India’s favour by Suresh Raina (26 from 19 balls with a four and a six) and Skipper MS Dhoni (24* from 21 balls).
Yuvraj Singh got the Man of the Match for his all-round performance.
