The three-match T20I series between India and Australia did not start well for the hosts. Despite setting up a huge target of 209 runs, India could not defend it and lost the match by four wickets. In an attempt to level the series, the Rohit Sharma-led team will take on Australia in the second T20I on the 23rd of September in Nagpur. Both teams will look to be in their best shape ahead of the T20 World Cup. Here is the preview for the second clash of the series.

Team Updates

India

The Men in Blue will be disappointed with their performance in the previous match and would look to resurrect themselves in the series. Despite having Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s experience, their death bowling was a huge disappointment. India’s batting lineup, on the other hand, appeared to be in good shape, but they would like to work harder on the field.

For the upcoming game, the team management may look to make some significant adjustments to the lineup. Jasprit Bumrah might return to the team in place of Umesh Yadav.

Probable Playing XI

Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal

Australia

The Australian team performed admirably in the opening game. The team was missing some of its key players, but Aaron Finch’s team never appeared to be in any trouble. They would look forward to sealing the series in the second match itself.

Going into Nagpur, the yellow brigade may not make any changes in an effort to maintain their lead in the series.

Probable Playing XI

Aaron Finch (c), Cameron Green, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Nathan Ellis, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

Pitch Report

The Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium has fairly flat wicket and smaller boundaries. The batters will try to benefit from this and score as many runs as they can. A high-scoring game is to be anticipated. The teams will look to bowl first after winning the toss.
