India takes on Australia in the 2nd T20I at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney on December 6, 1:40 PM, Sunday.
The chatter around the concussion substitute will remain as a resurgent India, unlikely to be alarmed by all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s absence, seek a series win in the second T20 International against Australia here on Sunday.
A series win will be an ideal confidence booster for India before the visitor hit the Test-match mode on.
Some of the Indian team players are treating the white-ball leg as a six-match composite series instead of two separate formats.
Having won two white-ball games in Canberra, the Indians under Virat Kohli will hope that the next two matches at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) pan out better for them.
India Predicted Playing XI
1. Shikhar Dhawan
2. KL Rahul (WK)
3. Virat Kohli (C)
4. Shreyas Iyer
5. Manish Pandey
6. Hardik Pandya
