India will play Australia in the second Twenty20 International on Friday in Nagpur, with the hope of erasing the memory of the last match, in which they were unable to protect a total of more than 200. The toss in Nagpur had been postponed because the outfield is damp. The bowling assault of the hosts, headed by Rohit Sharma was completely dismantled by Matthew Wade and Cameron Green at Mohali. The hosts’ performance was abysmal. All of the other bowlers, with the exception of Axar Patel, had a pretty difficult night against a severely weakened Australian team.

Changes were likely to be made in the Indian lineup for tonight now that Jasprit Bumrah has been certified fit. On the other hand, the guests wanted to keep everything the same and will be hoping for more of the same. Nathan Ellis has been one of their recent finds of note, and it is anticipated that he will play a pivotal role in Australia’s offensive strategy in the bowling department.

Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant are back

India won the toss and Rohit Sharma had no hesitation to field first in the 8-overs a side game. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav were dropped and Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant replaced them in this match. Team India will now hope to have the result in favour of them.

“It’s nice. There are so many people who have come to watch us. It is nice to get a game. These games are challenging ones because you don’t know what to do. You just have to go out and express yourself. Hopefully, we can put up a good show. Since it is an eight over game, we had to make two changes: Bumrah comes in for Yadav and Bhuvi misses out too. Pant comes in,” said Rohit Sharma at the toss.
