Australia beat India by 4 runs in a nail-biter in the first T20I at the Gabba and the close contest between the sides gave plenty of material for Twiteratti to exercise their wit. 

Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to field first and the visitors controlled the game beautifully in the first 10 overs. However, an onslaught by Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis brought the hosts back into the contest when rain intervened and even though Australia finished 158 in 17 overs, adjustments were made to the final score which gave India a target of 174.

Virender Sehwag, at his wittiest best, blamed GST for India's defeat despite scoring more runs than their opposition. 

Rishabh Pant's dismissal brought the poet out of this fan. 

While another fan was appreciative of Dinesh Karthik's valiant effort.

This fan echoed all of our feelings about the batting order.

Another fan could hardly hide his liking for the man of the match, Adam Zampa.

This man wanted to know the address of Duckworth Lews.

One person was not happy with the batsman on strike in the last over.

Famous troll account Sir Jadeja didn't miss out on the fun either, perhaps providing a solution. 

The two teams will meet next on Friday, November 23, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the second T20I.
