Australia to field against India in second T201

Australia to field against India in second T201

With Saturday's win, the hosts have won seven matches in a row, and they have not lost to Australia in T20I match since September 28, 2012.

The Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati will be the 49th Indian venue to host an worldwide match. The series decider will be played in Hyderabad on Friday.

But Henriques, who was promoted to No. 3, and Head put the tourists in control. Virat kohli's men will take on Australia in the 2nd T20I at the ACA-Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati. One big disappointment for India were their spinners who could not provide a breakthrough in the middle overs. Henriques scored 62 runs from 46 balls whereas Head scored 48 runs from 34 balls. Henriques with the winning hit.

Behrendorff finished with tremendous figures of 4-21 in four overs while Zampa took 2-19 as India struggled to 118 all out in 20 overs.

The first global cricket match played in Guwahati on December 17, 1983 between India and West Indies.

After seeing two of his first three deliveries sent to the boundary by Rohit Sharma (8), Behrendorff trapped him leg before with an inswinger and had two wickets before the end of the over. They are ranked one in the other two formats and Virat Kohli has already signalled his intention of achieving a better position in the unpredictable format as well.

He then had Manish Pandey caught behind for six runs before Shikhar Dhawan became his fourth victim when he was brilliantly caught by stand-in captain David Warner.

His spell of four overs was enough to break the backbone of Indian batting which was hardly tested in the ODI series. The ball to Rohit [from Behrendorff] was pretty good.

Tottering at 27/4, Kedar Jadhav (27) and former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (13) joined forces but Australia looked simply unstoppable on the night.

India was reduced to 70-7, before Hardik Pandya (25) and Kuldeep Yadav (16) added 33 runs to take the score past 100 in the 17th over. The new worldwide venue did experience some teething issues as journalists complained about the lack of basic facilities in the media centre.
