The first T20 International between India and Australia proved to a nail-biter. Low-scoring games are always very exciting and the Vizag T20 was no different. Having a 1-0 lead in the 2-match series gives the visitors a huge advantage. It’s now time for India to fight back or else they will end up losing the 2nd consecutive series. Keep reading to find out the India v Australia 2nd T20 Match Prediction.
In the last game, the Indian batsmen struggled on a surface that was seemingly difficult to bat on. But the credit must go to the Australian bowlers who made it harder. KL Rahul’s 50 was the sole bright spot in India’s effort of 127/7. The inability of the middle-order and Dhoni’s laborious 29 didn’t help India’s cause.
Indian bowlers did make a good start by pegging Australia back for 5/2. But Glenn Maxwell went on the counter-attack and threatened to run away with the game with a knock of 56. However, India bounced back by claiming 3 wickets in quick succession.
With 16 to get from the last 2 overs, Bumrah bowled a magnificent over and conceded just 2 runs and bagged 2 wickets. But Umesh Yadav couldn’t defend 14 from the last over as Pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson stole the game off the last ball.
