Australia and India Playing XI For 2nd T20
Question in detail
India Vs Australia 2nd T20 match prediction: A dominant 9-wicket win in Ranchi was India's seventh in a raw over Australia. Heavy rain in the middle reduced the game shorter thereby making the hosts chase a comfortable 48 in 6 overs by D/L method. India kept a tight rein of Australian batsmen taking wickets at regular intervals. Again it was bowlers' show with Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar and the spin duo of Chahal and Kuldeep coming relentless. India Vs Australia 2nd T20 match prediction again finds the hosts to be favorites.
Australia, on the other hand, continued their nightmarish run in the shortest format too having overwhelmingly conceded a 9-wicket defeat in the rain-affected first T20. The loss has mounted Aussies' struggle leading them to the brink of another series defeat. One more defeat in the second T20 would end their hopes to fight back. They are now in a desperate need of a win.
Over-reliance on Finch and Warner again kept Australia from posting a competitive target in the first match. The middle-order batsmen have to have their assigned role in the batting. If the visitors want to win India Vs Australia 2nd T20, each of their players will have to contribute the best.
Australia's XI for the 2nd T20 is predicted to be as Steven Smith (c), Aaron Finch, David Warner, Jason Behrendorff, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Moises Henriques, Kane Richardson, Andrew Tye, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Adam Zampa.
India's playing XI for the 2nd T20 is likely to be as Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul/ Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav/ Axar Patel.
Will Australia put paid to their nightmarish losing streak in the second T20 against India?
