India and Australia will square off in the second T20I match of the on-going five match series at the Greenfield International Stadium on November 26.
India, which is without some of its main players, won the first T20I. Batting first, Australia posted a competitive total of 208 runs on the board. Josh Inglis top scored with a knock of 110 while Steve Smith scored 52. The match went down to the wire before India chased down the target with one ball to spare. Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan scored half centuries while Rinku Singh remained unbeaten on 22 off 14 to take India to a win. A second-string Indian side will now look to carry the winning momentum into the second game. However, it can be noted that the Indian pacers performed poorly in the first match. Pacers Arshdeep Singh and Prasidh Krishna conceded 10.25 and 12.50 runs per over, respectively, while leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi was hit for 13.50 runs per over. Except for Mukesh Kumar, all the bowlers went for a lot of runs, and with the pitch at Thiruvananthapuram similar to the pitch in Vizag, the pace bowlers will have a lot of homework to do.
In T20 Internationals, India and Australia have faced each other 27 times. India emerged winners in 16 matches, while Australia secured wins in 10 games. One match produced no result.
