Ranchi (Jharkhand), Oct 7: In a major blow to Australia, skipper Steve Smith has been ruled out of the upcoming three-match T20 series against India due to a shoulder injury.

Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell then gave the visitors a sense of stability but they kept struggling with a pitch that was pretty much a batsman's nightmare in the shortest format of the game.
