INDIA: A brilliant performance from Rohit Sharma helped team India chase 91 runs in an eight-over match per side yesterday at VCA Stadium in Nagpur. The match was reduced to eight overs per side due to damp ground and wet outfield.

In this rain-delayed second T20I on Friday, India defeated Australia by six wickets to level the series at 1-1. Rohit Sharma demonstrated his six-hitting prowess with an unbeaten 46 runs off just 20 deliveries which included 4 fours and 4 gigantic sixes. At the same time, Dinesh Karthik came at the last over and finished things with a first-ball six, followed by a boundary to defeat Australia with six wickets and four balls to spare.

For Australia, Aaron Finch played a quick-fire knock of 31 runs off 15 deliveries which included 4 fours and a six, while Matthew Wade scored an unbeaten 43 runs off 20 deliveries, which included 4 fours and 3 sixes. In the final over of the Australian innings, Wade struck 3 huge sixes against Harshal Patel, and his blistering innings helped Australia post a challenging total of 90/5 in 8 overs.

For India, Axar Patel was once again the star of their bowling lineup as he picked up 2 wickets in his two overs. Jasprit Bumrah never gave the impression that he had not played an international match for a while as he bowled some excellent toe-crushing yorkers. Even Aaron Finch could not help but applaud Bumrah for the magnificent delivery he bowled to dismiss him.
