India vs Australia Second T20 Preview

India vs Australia will shift to the second and last match of the Paytm series on 27th February when the two sides will meet once again. Both the sides will be going into the match with their own agendas. For Australia, a win will see them seal the series and give them an elusive T20 series win in India. The home side will, on the contrary, be looking to overturn the 1-0 deficit which stares at them to save the series.

After a riveting first T20, one that went down right down till the last ball, one that Australia eventually managed to swing their way after the match constantly shifted hands, the second match promises to be another enthralling affair. With all the ingredients in place for an intriguing affair, one thing is for certain; each side will up their efforts a notch to ensure they come out with a win.

India vs Australia Second T20 PreviewFor both sides, massive work needs to be done and questions need to be addressed ahead of the encounter. The hosts who ended up losing credit to a massive and shambolic batting collapse in the middle-order, team selection and combination as to picking players in the batting line-up down the third batsman will be the major issue.

Despite incurring a huge downfall, one that saw three of the four middle-order batsmen contribute just 5 runs, we expect the side to go into what is a crucial match for them with the same line-up. The side has already asserted before that their focus is on the ODIs. All the world cup contenders will be in play in the ODI series.

The onus will lie on faces like Karthik and Pant to ensure they can deliver the goods come Wednesday. Meanwhile, on the bowling front, one that failed to impress barring Bumrah, the spin trio should retain its place but, on a pitch, where run scoring is generally an easy task, the slower bowlers will need to come good for India big time.

Batting continues to be a pressing issue for them but what was good news for them from the particular encounter was the way their bowlers, especially the spinners caused India to stumble.
