In the second T20I, which was shortened to eight overs each side because to the wet outfield, India chased down the goal of 91 with four balls to spare thanks to a brilliant performance from Rohit Sharma of 46* off 20 with four fours and as many maximums, while spinner Axar Patel grabbed 2/13 in two overs.
The team’s captain, Rohit, took the initiative and remained undefeated all the way through to snag a six-wicket victory and tie the series at one game each in Nagpur.
Australian Batting line-Up Hard Hammered Indian Bowlers
India won the toss and chose to field first in the outcome of the postponed match. Cameron Green, who was named Player of the Match in the last match, was run out after only five while Glenn Maxwell recorded his first golden duck in T20Is.
Hard-hitter Tim David also went cheaply for just two as Axar Patel got rid of him and Maxwell in a similar fashion bowled.
When Aaron Finch scored 31 off 15 before being clean bowled by the Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah, the captain appeared to be in good form.
Matthew Wade once more turned the tables on the hosts by hammering an undefeated 43 off only 20. Wade, the wicketkeeper-batter, played a brutal performance that helped the Australians reach 90/5 in eight overs.
Rohit Sharma Played A Captain Inning
Rohit provided his team a brilliant start when they were chasing 91 by smashing the Australian bowlers all over the field.
Adam Zampa, a great spinner who finished his spell of 3/16 in two overs by taking three significant wickets in KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav, put the Indian innings in jeopardy.
Dinesh Karthik arrived and blasted 10 off only two balls to secure the deal for the Men in Blue while Rohit persevered. As a result, the series is now tied 1-1. Rohit Sharma won Player of the Contest for his captain’s knock that ended the match.
The decisive game will now be played on September 25, 2022, in Hyderabad.
