India vs Australia – Team Performance in the Past Matches
Rohit Sharma and co showed an extraordinary game and fearlessly beat Australia by 6 wickets in the rain-affected second T20I at Nagpur. Chasing a target of 91 in just 8 overs, India’s hitman unleashed the beast inside him and scored 46 off just 20 deliveries while Dinesh Karthik helped him score 10 runs in just 2 deliveries. Axar Patel’s massive performance was a plus point for India to go for the T20 World Cup. He has picked the two crucial wickets, Glenn Maxwell and Tim David, to slow down Australia in the middle overs.
On the other hand, Australia played a good game but unfortunately, luck was on the Indian side. Despite the criticisms, Captain Aaron Finch played an exceptional knock of 31 runs out of 15 balls. Matthew Wade and Finch helped Australia to add something to the scoreboard. Wade smashed 43 runs off 20 balls that helped Australia reach 90 runs. Adam Zampa picked three wickets for Australia, but in the end, it was of no use.
