The must-win 2nd T20I game goes in favour of Team India who has now levelled the series 1-1 against Australia in Nagpur. The Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium saw a delay in toss due to a wet outfield, however, it did not discourage the fans and the players who were seen hyped up to witness an 8-over game.
Skipper Rohit Sharma, who asked to field first saw his side control the game from early on. The visitors managed to score 90 runs but lost five wickets. Australia knew they needed at least 100+ in this game, however, Axar Patel, restricted the Aussies.
Australian skipper Aaron Finch (31) and Matthew Wade (43) were the batters who put scores on the board. While Axar Patel lead India's bowling with two wickets while Jasprit Bumrah had one to his name. The side also had two run-outs.
As for the Men in Blue, captain Rohit led from the front and scored 46 runs. He found support from KL Rahul (10), Virat Kohli (11), Hardik Pandya (9) and Dinesh Karthik (10).
Adam Zampa, who took three wickets, and Pat Cummins who took one, had made it a little difficult for India, but the victory came in India's favour.
The two sides will next meet on Sunday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad.
