Sydney: In the first T20 match, India (India) defeated Australia (Australia) and started the series with a 1-0 lead. Now the second match of the series will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Sunday. The first two matches of the ODI series were played at this ground and in both the matches, Australia gave a huge score and gave the defeat to India.
Once again, the help of the batsmen can be seen on the SCG pitch and it is expected that the big scores will be seen on the scoreboard in the last 2 T20 matches to be held here. One-day wins for Australia can be a mental boost, but this team is also worried about injuries. David Warner is already out of the series.

Captain Aaron Finch also suffered a hip injury in the first T20. The situation is not clear about them. If Finch does not play, it will be a big blow to the host team and then the weight of the batting of the team over Steve Smith. Australian batsmen lost wickets early in the first match. In this match, the hosts would like to correct those mistakes.
In bowling, the team got runs in the last over. A good news for the Australian team is that Ravindra Jadeja, who scored fast runs for India in the last over, has been out due to injury. This is a relief for Australia and a worry for India. On the strength of KL Rahul and Jadeja, who started the innings with Shikhar Dhawan, India somehow managed to score a respectable score of 161 runs.
In this match, Virat Kohli also did not walk nor did many other batsmen. In such a situation, Indian batsmen will also have to do better. Yuzvendra Chahal, who was included as a concussion substitute for Jadeja, forced Australia to lose by taking three wickets in the first match. Chahal was not in the playing XI. Whether Chahal will get priority in Jadeja’s absence will have to be seen.
At the same time, T Natarajan, apart from Yuzvendra Chahal, also performed amazingly. Kohli had earlier cast Jaspreet Bumrah out in T20. Whether or not Bumrah returns in the second match will also be known on the day of the match. Certainly India would like this match to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the win series and the hosts will be trying to match.
