New Delhi. The second T20 is being played between India and Australia in Nagpur. By the way, the fans were expecting a match of 20-20 overs. But, this hope of the fans got washed away due to the rain a day earlier. Due to the wet outfield, the match started late by two and a half hours and the overs were also reduced to 8. Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl first. Due to being an 8-over match, the Indian team landed with only 4 bowlers. Jasprit Bumrah was included in the team in place of Umesh Yadav while Rishabh Pant came in place of Bhuveshwar Kumar. Hardik Pandya bowled the first over for India. In his over, Australian captain Aaron Finch scored a total of 10 runs with the help of two fours.
Captain Rohit Sharma surprised everyone and gave the second over to Axar Patel. Australia lost two wickets in this over. Opening in the last match, Cameron Green, who played a firefight, was run out on the score of 5 runs. At the same time, on the last ball of this over, Axar Patel clean bowled Glenn Maxwell. Maxwell was the victim of the Golden Duck. He returned to the pavilion without opening the account.
After this, in the fourth over, Axar clean bowled Tim David. The Australian team could only score 19 runs in the first two overs of the powerplay for the loss of 2 wickets and at the end of the half over ie 4 overs, Australia’s score was 35 runs for the loss of 3 wickets. Jasprit Bumrah came to bowl in the fifth over of Australia’s innings and in his very first over, Bumrah clean bowled the dangerous looking Australian captain Aon Finch. Finch was dismissed for 31 runs in 15 balls. Bumrah took 1 wicket for 22 runs in 2 overs of his quota.
In the last overs, once again Matthew Wade increased the trouble of Team India and he hit three sixes off Harshal Patel’s balls in the last ie 8th over of Australia’s innings. 19 runs came in this over of Harshal. Wade remained unbeaten on 43 off 20 balls. Harshal conceded 32 runs in 2 overs.
