GUWAHATI: Hosts India take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series when they enter the second Twenty20 match at the newly built Barasapara Cricket Stadium, then they will have to take the invincible lead in the series. India beat Australia by nine wickets in the first match, taking 1-0 lead. The responsibility of batting attack will be entirely on the captain Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
At the same time, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, and Hardik Pandya will be the burden of providing a strong score to the team in the lower order. Kohli can give fast bowler Ashish Nehra in the match in the last eleven. Jaspreet Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are sure to play in the bowling. On the spin, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuswendra Chahal will be the burden of the team. Kuldeep did well in the last T20.
At the same time, after being out of the series of regular Australian captain Steve Smith, and not Glenn Maxwell’s form, the full load of the team’s batting has come to the caretaker captain David Warner and Aaron Finch, who started the innings with them.
To make big scores or to achieve bigger goals, one of these two batsmen has remained important for Australia.
Nathan Coulter has proved to be useful for Australia in T20 after the Neyveldt in bowling. Apart from them, no other bowler could leave his mark. The team has hopes from leg-spinner Adam Jampa, but his magic has not yet been seen.
