India will take on Australia in the 2nd T20I of the series on Friday. Everything is not working well for Men in Blue at the moment, failing to defend targets has become a routine. It was an eye-opener for them in the Asia Cup and it continued into this series as well with a loss in the 1st T20I by 4 wickets. The batters were beyond words in the first half where Lokesh Rahul, Surya Kumar Yadav, and Hardik Pandya played entertaining knocks taking India to whopping 208 runs on the board. It was bowlers who let the team down again with their wayward bowling throughout the innings. Axar Patel who is a replacement for Ravindra Jadeja bowled impressively picking up 3 wickets at an economy of 4.25. They need to fix things, especially at the death in order to stay alive in the series.
Despite the absence of their big players, Australia still emerged out victorious in the 1st T20I by 4 wickets to go 1-0 up in the series. Cameron Green who isn’t in the T20 World Cup squad took Indian bowlers to the cleaners with his breathtaking batting and later it was Matthew Wade’s one-man show that handed visitors a famous win. Nathan Ellis was their pick of the bowler, picking up 3 wickets. Aaron Finch showed positive intent right from the start with a six-over long off, if he starts scoring more runs they will have more chances of securing the series with a game left.
What is the pitch report for IND vs AUS, 2nd T20I?
