India vs Australia, 2nd T20I 2019: With Virat Kohli-led Team India looking to avoid an embarrassing whitewash, eyes would be on the weather forecast to see if rain plays a part. It is expected to be cloudy but no rain forecast is there. India would hope the rain does not intervene and they have a full 40-overs match. The pitch is expected to be a batting paradise and runs would come in plenty. It is a reason for the fans to cheer as they would be treated to fours and sixes.
It would be interesting to see if India persist with former captain MS Dhoni and does Vijay Shankar get a game ahead of Dinesh Karthik or not. It would also be very intriguing to see if Umesh Yadav retains his spot in the XI after the horrifying last over at Vizag. Rishabh Pant would get a go that is what Kohli hinted after the Vizag clash. It is possible that India may look to replace Mayank Markande with Siddarth Kaul. The Men in Blue would look at all possible combinations before finalising their World Cup squad.
Australia on the other hand, may not look to tinker with the winning squad. The only change they could make is to replace Jhye Richardson with Kane Richardson.
