Ind Vs Aus, 2nd T20I: The second of the three T20 match series between India and Australia will be played at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur from 7 pm today. Team India is currently trailing 0-1 in the series. After the defeat in Mohali, it is necessary for India to win today’s match to save this series. At the same time, Rohit Sharma’s record of winning seven consecutive T20 International series is also in danger. The Aussies, on the other hand, will be a bit more confident after chasing 200-plus runs. In such a situation, there is full hope of a tough and exciting match in Nagpur.
Team India: Bowling weak in the death overs
In T20 Internationals this year, the Indian team has looked weak in terms of defending the target. This team has lost six matches after batting first and despite putting up a good score. The big reason for this has been that Bhuvneshwar Kumar is bowling in death instead of Jasprit Bumrah. Bhuvneshwar has spent almost 11 runs in the last five overs since the start of the Asia Cup 2022. At the same time, the team’s death over specialist Harshal Patel has been injured and this year he has also eaten 28 sixes for India. After the first match, Indian captain Rohit Sharma also blamed the bowlers for the defeat.
Changes can happen in the team
Looking at the Australian batting, no target can be too big if the bowlers are not able to defend it. In the first T20 International, India had scored a superb score of 208. But India’s fast bowlers, including Pandya, conceded 150 runs in 14 overs. In such a situation, Rohit Sharma can make 2 to 3 changes in the playing XI for the second T20. He may include Jasprit Bumrah, Deepak Chahar and Ravichandran Ashwin in the playing XI for the second match. At the same time, talking about Australia, after the victory in the last match, the visiting team hardly makes any changes in their playing XI.
India’s Probable XI:
KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma (Captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, Harshal Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal.
Australia’s Probable XI:
Aaron Finch (c), Cameron Greene, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis, Tim David, Matthew Wade, Pat Cummins, Nathan Ellis, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood.
