Team India was commanding in their 37-run win over Australia in the opening match of the 3-match series, prompting Sunil Gavaskar to term them favourites for the upcoming ICC World Twenty20.

The Indian batting legend elaborated that MS Dhoni’s men were brilliant on the day and the same eagerness can win them the esteemed trophy they won in 2007.

Last time’s runners-up were pinpoint in all the areas and outclassed the hosts, who were lethal during their 4-1 demolition of India in the recently-concluded ODI series.

Gavaskar was particularly impressed by Virat Kohli’s match-winning 90 off 55 balls and Jasprit Bumrah’s fine spell of 3/23.
