Glenn Maxwell denied Jansen the hat-trick but the latter dismissed skipper Du Plessis (5) on the last ball of the over. The three-time finalists never really recovered from the early jolts.

After struggling at the crease, Harshal Patel (4) was became the second wicket of Natarajan as the former got clean bowled.
