Australia and India meet in the 2nd T20 at the SCG on Sunday. The visitors won the first match of the series after Australia struggled on the batting front, once India got through Aaron Finch and Steven Smith. Can the hosts turn it around and level the series?

Australia Form


Australia did not get the T20 series off to the best of starts on Friday in Canberra. Aaron Finch won the toss and sent India in to bat on what looked a good batting wicket.

Throughout most of the innings Australia had India under control but a late flurry of boundaries got India to a par total of 161 runs.

Aaron Finch and D’Arcy Short got Australia off to a fine start with a 56-run opening partnership. Unfortunately once Finch was dismissed things didn’t go as well. Moises Henriques tried to rescue the situation with a good knock of 30 but it was not enough as the hosts fell 11 runs short.

Australia Team News


With David Warner already ruled out, captain Aaron Finch may miss the 2nd T20. It has not been confirmed but reports suggest he may be struggling with a thigh strain.

Pat Cummins was also missing in the 1st T20 and regardless of whether he is fit, Australia are not likely to risk him ahead of the Test series.

India Form


India have now won eight T20 matches in a row after beating Australia in the 1st 20 in Canberra. KL Rahul top scored with 51 runs while Ravindra Jadeja smashed 44 off 23 balls late on to take India to a competitive total of 161.

Natarajan bowled superbly, taking 3-30 in his four overs. Yuzvendra Chahal was just as good with figures of 3-25 as India pegged Australia back to win by 11 runs.

India Team News


Ravindra Jadeja is very likely to miss the 2nd T20 after not fielding in the opening encounter. He was hit on the head while batting and showed symptoms of concussion.

Australia vs India Head to Head


Australia and India are level at four wins apiece over their last eight T20 encounters. In the 1st T20 of this series India won by 11 runs in Canberra.

Australia vs India Odds


Australia are favourites at $1.80 with India available at $2.00. Steven Smith can be backed at $4.33 to be Australia’s best batsman. In the same market, Virat Kohli is valued at $3.40 for India.

Australia vs India Match Up


Australia will have to find a way of dealing with the Indian spin bowlers during the middle overs. They struggled in Canberra and the possible injury to Aaron Finch will be another major blow to the hosts.
