Jasprit Bumrah’s fitness status will be a matter of attention when an out-of-sorts Indian team will look at course correction. Bumrah has been out of action since the end of England tour, skipped the Asia Cup due to back injury. However, to everyone’s surprise, the team management didn’t play him during the high-scoring first T20I in Mohali, raising doubts about whether he has still attained peak fitness or not. To compound the team’s worries, the ‘three-and-a-half’ pronged pace attack, including Hardik Pandya, conceded 150 runs in 14 overs.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the seasoned pro, has already been taken to cleaners. He has leaked 49 runs in the three penultimate overs (19th) that he bowled against Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia. In this backdrop, a fit and fiery Bumrah is a pre-requisite for India as the home bowlers are increasingly being found out on batting belters.

IND vs AUS LIVE: What to expect from 2nd T20 in Nagpur?

  • The worst part about the team is that the team looks highly unsettled with just five matches to go for T20 World Cup.
  • If the approach of top three was a problem going into the Asia Cup, the bigger worry has been the bowling.
  • The seasoned bowlers including Bhuvneshwar have been exposed in good batting conditions.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal, who has been India’s go-to spinner in all conditions, isn’t looking menacing anymore.
  • He has been expensive in the last few games and he will have to find a way to trouble the batters.
  • However, all-rounder Axar Patel, who was shoed in as Ravindra Jadeja’s replacement, has once again proved his worth.
  • India were also sloppy on the field dropping three catches, which drew criticism from former head coach Ravi Shastri.
  • Designated finisher Dinesh Karthik didn’t get much chance on Tuesday and is likely to be given extended game time.
  • Barring Jasprit Bumrah and a last-minute call on Dinesh Karthik, the team will remain the same.
  • Umesh Yadav is expected to be dropped for Bumrah.

Australia, on the other hand, have looked like a well-oiled machine. They are without David Warner, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis and Mitchell Marsh. The world champions have also played the least number (10) of T20s since their triumph. But with power all over the squad, they are a side to beat.

All-rounder Cameron Green nicely slipped into the shoes of Warner with a sizzling fifty at the top in only his second T20I. Steven Smith and debutant Tim David also gave the team the required impetus with crucial cameos. The experienced Matthew Wade too lived up to the finisher’s role with a stellar 45 not out off 21.

Australia, however, would hope for a more disciplined show from their bowling unit after the pace trio of Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Green bled runs in Mohali.

Nagpur Pitch Report: The wicket at VCA stadium, however, will be different than the Mohali track. It is expected to be on the slower side, which will make bowlers’ role more prominent in this game. With dew setting in the evening, teams will prefer to chase than defend totals.
