India and Australia will cross their sword in the second of the three-match T20I series. Talking about the first match played at Mohali, then the visitors completely outplayed the Indians to win the match by four wickets and gain the lead of 1-0 in the series. Now, both teams will face each other in the second match in Nagpur.
The Indian team will be looking for some changes as the bowling attack failed drastically in the death overs during the first T20I against the men in yellow. Star batter Suryakumar Yadava has already confirmed in the pre-match press conference that the senior pacer Jasprit Bumrah is completely fit and all set to play in the second match against Australia.
On the other hand, the Aussies are coming up with a lot of positives from the curtain raiser of the series. The brilliant knock of young batter Cameron Green and experienced staff from senior wicketkeeper-batter Matthew Wade are good signs for the team to seal the series with a win in the penultimate match of the series. Indians will also be eyeing to level the series with a comeback in the Nagpur T20I.
So, taking this discussion a bit ahead, here we’ll have a look at all the details of the second T20I of the series. It will include the preview, predicted playing XIs, venue details, broadcast details, and all you need to know about the match.
