India and Australia are locking horns with each other in the second T20I of the five-match series at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday, November 26.
Inglis delivered an outstanding performance with the bat in the first T20I and hit a brutal ton. He smashed 110 runs off 50 balls, with 11 fours and 8 sixes. The Aussie batsman was a big threat for India in the second T20I as well, but he wasn’t able to do any damage, thanks to Tilak Varma’s phenomenal catch.
On the second ball of the 5th over, leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi bowled a fuller and quicker delivery to Josh Inglis. The Aussie batsman tried to smash the ball over mid-on but wasn’t able to get a good connection. Tilak Varma ran back, stretched out, and timed the jump to perfection to complete a sensational catch. Inglis was back in the hut after scoring 2 runs off 4 balls.

Speaking ahead of the match, Tilak Varma stated that the experience of playing at the Visakhapatnam was good for him. He said:
“Was a pretty good experience [at Visakhapatnam], the wicket was a bit challenging. Winning there was a good experience.
Tilak Varma added that he is working on his finishing skills as this will be his role in the team. He said:
“It’s going good, I’m working on finishing games for the Indian team. This role is not new for me, I’ve played a similar role for Mumbai Indians. Finishing games for the Indian team is a dream for me, I’ve got the role now so it’s about going out there and doing the job. I’m just thinking about my mindset, it’s all about having the right mindset, if I’m calm under pressure I can finish games.”
