In the second T20 the Indian Captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to ball first. The Indians bowled well and kept a stump to stump line, providing no room to the Australia batsman to free their arms. They kept a stranglehold on them throughout the 8 overs and the match was restricted within these overs. Hats off to the groundsman for being able to dry up the ground to start the match after the Australian innings got over and then India come out to play.
India didn’t have the expected start as opener KL Rahul got out for just 3 runs and Rohit Sharma managed to have a small partnership with Virat Kohli and steadied the ship before Virat got out. unpleasantly we lost Suryakumar Yadav at the very first ball that he faced while Hardik Pandya made 9 runs of 9 balls. Dinesh Karthik finished off the game making 10 runs of 2 balls but the outstanding game of Rohit Sharma who scored 46 runs off just 20 balls, left a sparkling effect on the spectators.
It was Rohit Sharma storm in Nagpur jamtha stadium, smashing the Australian bowlers to bits and creating an unforgeable spectacle of a performance. The vintage Sharma truly batted like a Pro. Now let’s talk about the all-important 3rd T20I of India vs Australia MasterCard T20I Trophy. if the Indian Captain Rohit Sharma wins the toss in the third T20I, then he should choose to bowl first and the Indian bowlers should continue to bowl the same stump to stump line and length, which they bold in the previous match. The strategy should be to restrict Australian to a score below 200. And if India gets a chance to bat they should strive hard to a score above 200 runs.
