India, Australia arrive for T20

India, Australia arrive for T20

Ahead of the match, Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal will officially open the ACA Barsapara Stadium.

The tourists struggled to 118-8 from 18.4 overs with spinner Kuldeep Yadav and seamer Jasprit Bumrah both taking two wickets apiece before the weather delayed the match for almost two hours, leaving India with a revised target of 48 from six overs.

After a comprehensive nine-wicket victory in a rain-truncated first T20I encounter in Ranchi, Team India will be aiming to wrap up the three-match series in their favour when they face a hapless Australian side for the second match, in Guwahati, tomorrow.

When is the India vs Australia 2nd T20I match? The Assam Cricket Association-owned stadium, which will be making its worldwide debut, presents the ideal setting for the host to accomplish a win and seal the three-match series. Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will need to be bowl similarly as they have done for India in limited overs cricket.

The Australian batting has mostly revolved around the top three of Warner, Finch and Steve Smith.

In South Carolina, prices Monday were $2.32 per gallon unleaded regular compared to last week's $2.41. AAA says the biggest drop was 11 cents for cheap gas leader, the Tampa Bay area ($2.44).

Glenn Maxwell on his individual score of 17 became victim of Bumrah in the seventh over when the score was 55. Chahal has combined quite well with Yadav making his "wristy" leg-spin a fine compliment for Yadav's left-arm variations. His team, though, is backing him fully. "He's hitting the ball in the nets, he's up and about in the field", Finch was quoted as saying by PTI. Kohli has time and again praised Yadav's "amazing" ability of deceiving any batsman.

After playing five sweep shots, Yadav bowled one fuller that breached his defence.

After their performance in Ranchi, where they lost the first game by nin wickets (DLS), Australia do not make a strong statement for a comeback in this series.

The pitch may throw up a surprise or two. It has favoured the spinners in the domestic matches but a few pacers have also benefitted in the last season of Ranji Trophy. The batting department will largely be dependent on hard-hitting batsmen Rohit Sharma, skipper Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Hardik Pandya.
