After having scripted a thrilling 11-run-win in the opening game of the three-match T20I series, Team India will now look to seal the series and notch up their 10th consecutive win in the shortest format of the game when they lock horns with Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday.
Unlike in ODI cricket, India boasts of a good record in T20Is at the SCG. They have won each of their two fixtures at the iconic venue and will be hoping to make it three in a row on Sunday.
With Ravindra Jadeja ruled out of the series due to injury, it will be interesting to see the make-up of the Indian playing 11,
Here’s a look at India’s predicted XI for the 2nd T20I:
Shikhar Dhawan had a forgettable outing in the last game.

Dhawan scored a rapid 22-ball 41 during his last outing in a T20I at the SCG (in 2018). The southpaw would be looking to repeat the same on Sunday.
