India vs Australia, 2nd Twenty20: David Warner and co eye series leveller

Australia outplay India by eight wickets in the 2nd T20I of the three-match series. MS Dhoni is set to make his 80th T20I appearance in this match; he'll become only the 5th player to make that many (Afridi, Shoaib Malik, Umar Akmal and Dilshan). Also, we think that Indian captain Virat Kohli will not do any type of change in playing 11 because all teammates played well in the previous match. Yes!

The India vs Australia 2st T20 match from Guwahati will be telecasted live on Star Sports network on television. Last ball of the first over of India's innings, another controlled inswinger from the pacer pitched in the good-length area, bounced back off the pads as Behrendorff leaned in to grab the ball.

However, that was to be India's last taste of success for the remainder of the match as Henriques and Travis Head amassed an unbeaten 109-run partnership to lead Australia to victory with 27 balls to spare.

India are on a winning run of 7 matches in T20s while Australia without their injured captain Steve Smith have struggled to find the rhythm in the shorter formats against India.

It's the first worldwide match to be played in the north-eastern city of Guwahati for eight years.

The chase was on shaky ground with Australia 2-13 after openers David Warner and Aaron Finch departed early. They never let Indian spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal dominate which turned out to be the game-changer for the visitors.

But Henriques, who was promoted over Glenn Maxwell, slammed four delectable sixes and as many number of boundaries to take the wind out of India's sail. Virat Kohli bagged his maiden duck in T20I cricket as he inside edged the second delivery he faced from the same bowler to be caught in follow through.

That all his dismissals have come against Chahal underlines the all-rounder's inability to tackle leg-spin.

Australia have won the toss and have lected to field first.

But rain eventually made an appearance towards the end of Australia's innings in the first Twenty20 global at the JSCA Stadium against India.
