India vs Australia 2020, Live Cricket Score, 2nd T20I Today Game:We are just 10 minutes away from the shoot. India should look to bat here again if they win the toss. That seems to have worked well for them while the persecuting team had the tough job.
OVERVIEW:India would look to seal the series when they face Australia in the second T20I at the SCG on Sunday, December 6th. The visitors, led by fine batting performances by KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja and a superb period of leg spin bowling by concussion substitute Yuzvendra Chahal took the lead in Canberra with an 11 run victory. India last lost a T20I series in February, 2019 – at home against Australia. Since then they have remained undefeated and would look to seal their fifth consecutive T20I series at the SCG. Ravindra Jadeja is out of the T20I series due to a concussion after being hit on the helmet by a MItchell Starc bouncer in Canberra. His place in the XI in Sydney would probably be taken by his concussion substitute and first T20I Game Player – Yuzvendra Chahal. The only other possible change in the mating line would be to replace Shreyas Iyer at number 5 in place of Manish Pandey.

Mohammed Shami went for a few runs in Canberra and may be resting with Jasprit Bumrah entering the XI. The rest of the bowling looks sorted. T Natarajan was impressive on his first T20I appearance and returned with three wickets. Washington Sundar continued from where he left off in the IPL 2020 – he was once again, extremely restrictive and conceded only 16 runs in his 4 overs (two overs in the powerplay) in Canberra.

Australia has a few injury problems – their biggest concern would be the availability of their form captain, Aaron Finch. He suffered a hip injury against India in Canberra and remains a questionable starter in Sydney. If he doesn’t get to the XI, Matthew Wade could fill in as a stand-in captain and open with D’Arcy Short. The batting will rely heavily on Steven Smith and Glenn Maxwell – having excelled in the ODIs both failed to deliver in the first T20I in Canberra and would be desperate to compensate with major contributions to level the series. Australia have released Cameron Green from the squad and drafted in the experienced, Nathan Lyon who could find a place in the XI. The home team will again expect a great performance from Moises Henriques, who was superb, with the bat and ball in Canberra.
