The second match of the 3-match ODI series (IND vs AUS T20I Series, 2022) between India and Australia will be played in Nagpur on Friday, 23 September. Australia won a very exciting victory in the first match of this series played in Mohali. In that match, Australia defeated the Indian team by 4 wickets. Friday’s match will be very important for India, because by winning it, Team India would like to level the series first one-on-one and the last match will be the title.
