India vs Australia T20: Team India under Rohit Sharma will be looking to make amends after losing in the high-scoring first T20 match at Mohali. In the 2nd T20 on Friday at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur, the Indian cricket team will look to fix their bowling woes and stem the flow of runs in the death overs.
While KL Rahul’s return to form as an opener will be of some solace, the combination of fast bowlers will surely be a headache for the Indian team management. Coach Ruhul Dravid and seniors will also rue the missed catches that cost India dearly in Mohali.
Suryakumar Yadav told the press on Thursday that fast bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah is fit and available to play. The only question remains if team management is willing to bring him into the side for what could effectively be the series decider T20 game.
The Australian cricket team, on the other hand, will be looking to wrap the series up with one game to spare and take this moral boost into the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022.
The second T20I of the three-match series will be played at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur today at 7:30 PM IST. The toss will take place at 7pm IST.
