Virat Kohli:-The second T20I among India and Australia was diminished to eight overs for each side and began more than two hours after the fact than it was planned because of a wet outfield at the VCA Arena in Nagpur. However, fans at the ground, who stood by without complaining to see their #1 cricketers in real life, were not frustrated as there was no lack of activity in the match. While Aaron Finch got the adrenaline running with a scooped limit off Hardik Pandya in the first finished, it was Virat Kohli who had the group on their feet in the second done with a shocking toss that stopped Cameron Green’s innings right off the bat in the match.
Green, who hit a splendid 30-ball 61 in the last match, hit the ball towards mid-on and rushed for a solitary. In any case, Kohli rushed to get to the ball and tossed it with extraordinary speed and accuracy to Axar Patel at the non-striker’s end, and the all-rounder thumped the bails off before Green could arrive at the wrinkle.

India went on to beat Australia by 6 wickets to level the three-match series, after the visitors took the first match.
Australia, put in to bat by Rohit Sharma, reached a total of 90/5. Aaron Finch gave them a good start with his 15-ball 31, but India came back with a string of wickets. Jasprit Bumrah ended Finch’s stay at the crease with a brilliant low full toss that clattered into the stumps.
But Matthew Wade then smashed 43 off 20 deliveries to keep his run of form going, while also taking Australia to a good total.
However, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul got India off to a flyer in the chase, and despite Adam Zampa throwing a spanner in the works by dismissing KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav, the India skipper ensured they got home safe and sound with an unbeaten knock of 46 off 20 deliveries.
With the win, India levelled the series 1-1 and the two teams will now face off in the decider in Hyderabad on Sunday.
