Highlights | India vs Australia 2nd T20I

As frequently as Rohit Sharma fails to finish a game, he has received criticism. But the Indian captain had such a good day that everything he hit went for good runs.

India has a fast start, with Rohit and KL Rahul scoring 30 runs in the first two overs. Josh Hazlewood’s first over yielded 20 runs.

Rohit led the charge right away, hitting Hazlewood for two sixes.

While Rahul was out in the third over by Adam Zampa, India was still comfortable.

The Indian vice-captain scored 6-ball 10.

Zampa, on the other hand, maintained control over Virat Kohli.

The ex-captain appeared to be in good form during his 6-ball stay, but a brilliant delivery from Zampa finished him off.

Suryakumar Yadav paid the price for the same error, and Zampa nearly derailed India’s plans by replacing SKY with a golden duck.

With Zampa’s quota completed on 3/16, Rohit assumed command.

He hammered Daniel Sams and Sean Abbott, and Hardik Pandya also went down cheaply.

Finally, Dinesh Karthik got the strike with nine required off the last over.

Mr Finisher from India, on the other hand, simply needed two deliveries to finish the assignment.

Sams’ first delivery went for a six and the next for a four as India won by six wickets with four balls remaining.

Rohit finished unbeaten on 46, which included four fours and four sixes.

Earlier, after a two-and-a-half-hour delay, the match began at 9:30 PM.

There wasn’t much to evaluate in an 8-over T20 World Cup game.

However, the execution was comparable to bowling in death overs in T20s.

After much criticism, India brought back Jasprit Bumrah to bolster their bowling attack.

Aaron Finch started well for Australia, hitting 31 off 15 pitches. However, in Ravindra Jadeja’s absence, it was Axar Patel who shone.

He was the most effective bowler, taking two wickets for 13 runs in two overs.

However, Jasprit Bumrah demonstrated what India lacked. His steering yorker thoroughly cleaned up Aaron Finch.

Steve Smith was forced to the ground by another steering yorker.

While he was a little pricey, it was expected, given that he was playing a competitive match after two months.

Bumrah finished his two with a score of 1/23. Rohit Sharma, on the other hand, was pleased with his performance.

The Matthew Wade show He has cleaned up the Indian bowling attack in two matches and has a particular fondness for Harshal Patel.

On Friday, it was no different. Wade took charge after Axar Patel slowed the scoring rate with a 20-ball 43 that included three sixes and four boundaries.

His efforts helped Australia reach 90/5 in 8 games. India has levelled the series at 1-1 with a 6-wicket victory in Nagpur.
