Sydney: In the first T20 match, India (India) beat Australia (Australia) and started the series with a 1-0 lead. Now, the second game of the series will be played on Sunday at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). The first two matches of the ODI Series were played on this pitch and in both matches Australia gave a huge score and defeated India.
Once again, the batsman’s support can be seen on the SCG field and it is expected that the last 2 T20 games taking place here will also see big scores on the scoreboard. One day wins for Australia can be a mental boost, but this team is worried about injuries as well. David Warner is already out of the series.

Captain Aaron Finch also suffered a hip injury during the first T20. The situation is not clear about them. If Finch doesn’t play it will be a huge blow to the host team and the weight of the team’s bat will be on Steve Smith. The Australian batsmen lost wickets early in the first game. In this game, the hosts would like to correct these mistakes.
In bowling, the team got points in the last over. Good news for the Australian team is that Ravindra Jadeja, who scored quick points for India in the last game, has been ruled out due to injury. It is a relief for Australia and a concern for India. Based on KL Rahul and Jadeja, who started the heats with Shikhar Dhawan, India somehow managed to score a respectable 161 points.
In this match, Virat Kohli also failed to walk and many other drummers. In such a situation, Indian drummers will also have to do better. Yuzvendra Chahal, who was included as a concussion substitute in place of Jadeja, forced Australia to lose by taking three wickets in the opener. Chahal was not in the XI of the game. In the absence of Jadeja, will Chahal have priority?
At the same time, T Natarajan apart from Yuzvendra Chahal also performed amazingly. Kohli had previously cast Jaspreet Bumrah in T20. Whether or not Bumrah returns in Game 2 will also be known on match day. India would certainly like this game to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the winning streak and the hosts will try to compete.
India likely play XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, Virat Kohli (captain), Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, KL Rahul (wicket keeper), Hardik Pandya, Shardul Thakur, Jaspreet Bumrah, Yuzv Chahal, T Nataraendrajan
