In fact, after losing the first T20 match (IND vs AUS T20) played in Mohali, skipper Rohit Sharma blamed the bowlers for the defeat. Earlier in the 2022 Asia Cup, the reason behind the loss to Sri Lanka and then to Pakistan was the bowling of Team India. India missed Bumrah in the first T20 against Australia. Barring Akshar Patel, every bowler conceded 10 runs per over, which was a major factor in the team’s defeat.
Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav proved to be the most expensive. Together they gave 108 runs in 8 overs. Indian team needs Bumrah to return soon. He is not only a vital link in saving the series but also a means of strengthening a weak bowling attack. This time, the more matches he plays, the more advantage India will have in the World Cup match against Pakistan on October 23.

Who will get a chance, Karthik or Pant?
As far as other options are concerned, India will have to call upon Dinesh Karthik. Their limited options haven’t yielded much and the absence of Rishabh Pant behind the stumps has somehow not bode well for the team. Pant may not be in great form in T20 but his ears and brain work better behind the stumps. So Dinesh Karthik could not show wonder with the bat in the first match, could not play the role of wicketkeeper properly. He made many mistakes in the first match, which cost the team. Pant’s return, Hardik and Akshar could be two good options as finishers.
Currently, Yuzvendra Chahal also needs a break. His performance has been poor in the last few matches. He lost by 42 runs on Tuesday. Adding Ashwin will ease the pressure on him.
But the second match against Australia is do or die for India. The visiting team has a 1-0 lead in the series. In such a situation, the Indian team needs to win.
India’s playing XI for the second T20I- Rohit Sharma (captain), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Akshar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Jasprit Bumrah.
