India has to settle accounts in the second T20I against Aussies. Aussies clinched victory in first t20 at Visakhapatnam. couple of months back Australia were defeated in Australia against India. But India are in danger of losing t20 series in India. Bangalore is ready to host the second t20. This is the last t20 in this series.
Team India are under humongous pressure after losing the first t20. Batsmen are purely responsible in the defeat in first t20. Still bowlers almost managed to win the match until Aussies tailanders managed to score 13 runs in last over.
We all are aware of how batsmen friendly is Bangalore pitch. Plenty of runs are on the cards. Spinners could get some assistance. India might well play with three spinners once again. Krunal Pandya’s performance should be satisfactory for team management.
Changes in Team
Chances are high for India to make changes. India adapted rotation policy just before world cup. Shikhar Dhawan was rested in first t20I. He might be included in playing XI. KL Rahul will be given more chances after performing in first t20I. India might rest Shikhar Dhawan on this occasion. Vijay Shankar might be given a chance by replacing either Pant or Dinesh Karthik. Sources from grapevine also say that Siddharth Kaul might replace Umesh Yadav. Once again Dhoni’s agility was under the radar.
India has never lost a bilateral t20 series against Australia. In 2008 India lost to Australia in a single game. India never faced Australia at chinnaswamy stadium. Australia had fond memories playing here by winning against Bangladesh in 2016 WC. Aussies won by three wickets in that match.
- Shikhar Dhawan to score a fifty.
- Expect more than 180 runs by team batting first.
- Team chasing is unlikely to win the match.
