Australia take on India in the second T20I in Nagpur on Friday, September 23. They won the first T20I by four wickets and lead the three-match series 1-0. India needs to win the second T20I to keep the series alive.
Cameron Green was the Man of the Match for Australia scoring 61 off 30 balls in the record chase. His first four scoring shots were all boundaries off Umesh Yadav. After a minor blip between overs 10 to 15, it was Mattew Wade who scored 45 off 21 balls to take his team home. Australia needed more than 60 in the final five overs and won the match with two balls to spare.
Heading into the second T20I, they should ideally play with the same XI that helped them win the first game. However, the Australian bowling attack needs to come up with a better performance in Nagpur where the ball turns a bit more than in Mohali. In this article, we take a look at their playing XI for the second T20I against India.
