India to take on Australia in 2nd Twenty20 global in Guwahati

Steve Smith was ruled out of the T20 Is with a shoulder injury

Australian fast bowler removed Jason Behrendorff removed opener Rohit Sharma (8) and Kohli (0) in the first over to rattle India's innings after Australia won the toss and opted to bowl in the second T20I in Guwahati.

After won the ODI series by 4-1, India started the T-20 global series by winning the first T-20 worldwide match via Duckworth/Lewis method in a rain-marred match played in Ranchi on October 7 last.

India on the other hand, failed to get going with Dhoni being stumped for the first time in a T20 worldwide after adding 33 runs for the fifth wicket with Jadhav.

Henriques and Travis Head shared an unbeaten 109-run stand for the third wicket to ensure the lifeline that gave Australia the much-needed victory and the reason to hope for a series win in the last match scheduled at Hyderabad on Friday. Yadav especially had an ordinary day as he bowled too many boundary balls to Head and Henriques, who hit a combined nine fours and five sixes.

Kohli has scored 1852 runs at an average of 54.47 while he was not out for 13 times in 47 innings of 51 matches in worldwide T20. "We have just got to keep playing the game that we know and that's the brand of cricket that we bring to the table", Warner said at the pre-match press conference on Monday, October 9.

Skipper David Warner (2) was the first man to be dismissed off a short-pitched ball from Bumrah before Bhuvneshwar struck with the wicket of the in-form Aaron Finch (8), comfortably caught by captain Virat Kohli on both occasions. He picked up the wickets of Shikhar Dhawan and Manish Pandey crushing India's top order in the powerplay overs.

Virat Kohli was his next victim two balls later after he got an inside edge which ricocheted off his pad allowing Behrendorff to charge in and take the catch.

Kedar Jadhav and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who made 13, then tried to stem the rot during their 33-run partnership but leg-spinner Adam Zampa broke through the duo's defences.

For India, Kuldeep and Bumrah took two wickets while Bhuvneshwar, Hardik Pandya, Chahal took one wicket each. Austrlaia has such players who can run a solo win like Aron Finch, David Warner, Glean Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis.
