Hosts India will be a win away from making a home series win in both the limited overs of cricket against Australia when they take on the Aussies tomorrow in Guwahati for the 2nd T20 international.
India won the first one in a rain curtailed match and they will be hoping to repeat their recent streak of wins in Guwahati. The visitors on the other hand will be desperate for a win and a better display of batting against the Indians.
India don’t need to change their winning combination as all the players are contributing in their own department. Kuldeep Yadav has been terrific for the men in blue while the pacers have set the tone early in the Aussie innings. Winning the toss was also very important at Ranchi and it may a be a crucial factor in the next match as well.
Kangaroos will have to sort out a perfect team as they have been over relied on some of their players, specially in the batting department. Steve Smith hasn’t contributed at all in this tour and he may have to sit out in the next match for the team’s benefit. Players like Tim Paine and Andrew Tye may get a chance to showcase their arsenal.
Probable Line Up:
India: Virat Kohli (Capt.), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah
Australia: Steve Smith(Capt.), David Warner, Aaron Finch, Dan Christian, Travis Head, Tim Paine, Kane Richardson, Moises Henriques, Adam Zampa, Andrew Tye, Nathan Coulter Nile
