Hello and Welcome to our preview for Australia vs India T20I match. We are covering AUS vs IND Dream 11 team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the second T20I match. The match is to be played at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
Playing just a two-match T20I series can backfire India as now with a win, they will at best share the series. Australian bowling fired all guns on a difficult track at the Vizag and emerged victorious on the last ball of the game. Australia went in with nine bowling options while India had only five. In the end, it was Umesh Yadav’s final over which cost India the game.
Bowling first, Jason Behrendorff struck early and kept the pressure on Indian batsmen. Coulter-Nile struck at important junctures and ran through India’s middle order with a spell of 3/26. Glenn Maxwell played a stunning knock of 56 from 43 balls. He was well supported by D’Arcy Short’s 37.
KL Rahul shined in India’s first innings as he scored a quick-fire 50 from 36 balls. Apart from Kohli, rest of the batsmen fell away one by one. MS Dhoni anchored the inning and took India to 126/7. Jasprit Bumrah was phenomenal with the ball but India played with only five bowlers and it came back to haunt them.

Aaron Finch (c), Alex Carey, D Arcy Short, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jhye Richardson, Adam Zampa, Nathan Lyon, Jason Behrendorff, Usman Khawaja, Ashton Turner
Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Vijay Shankar, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Krunal Pandya, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Markande, Siddarth Kaul
Kane Richardson has been ruled out of the Tour of India due to a side injury. Andrew Tye will replaced him in the squad.
Australia surprised everyone by sending Stoinis at the top. Aaron Finch’s first-ball duck proved the decision to be correct. Australia is more likely to stick with the same playing XI.
Aaron Finch and D’Arcy Short may open this time unless they promote Stoinis again. Glenn Maxwell at three/four will be an excellent option.
Handscomb and Ashton Turner will hope for an improvement in batting.
Zampa will be the lead-spinner with Coulter-Nile, Behrendorff, J Richardson and Pat Cummins making up a formidable attack.
Kuldeep Yadav is not a part of this series, Hardik Pandya is ruled out due to an injury.
India will contemplate playing Vijay Shankar and Siddarth Kaul in this game. They may take places of Mayank Markande and Umesh Yadav.
Rohit Sharma/S Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and MS Dhoni form the core of batting. The inclusion of Vijay Shankar increases batting depth and gives a bowling option.
Markande place is slightly risky. Krunal Pandya, Y Chahal and Bumrah are certain starters. Umesh Yadav may get dropped in favor of Siddarth Kaul.
D Arcy Short, Marcus Stoinis, Aaron Finch (c), Glenn Maxwell, Peter Handscomb (wk), Ashton Turner, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff, Adam Zampa

If any player misses from playing XI, then replace him.
Captain and Vc choices: V Kohli, KL Rahul, A Finch, M Stoinis, Rohit Sharma, G Maxwell, J Bumrah, Jason Behrendorff.
