India (235/4) defeat Australia (191/9) by 44 runs to take a 2-0 lead

2 wkts … Inglish asked for catch review… he got clever as Travis head touched the ball on ground while taking Rohit’s catch
 
AUS - 53/2 (5.3 overs).

Just see off Bishnoi (he has 2 overs left). Rest should be easy.
 
Terrific performance by India B. SKY seems like a really capable captain.
Can't wait to see these lads in action in the T20 world cup. I hope they send this team, and not revert back to the 'seniors'.
However, VVS is very likely to do that. He is conservative right down to his shoelaces.

India B haven't been truly tested.

They faced Australia B or C.

Sorry but head's catch off rohit was clean.. yes ind lost and it was disappointing but ind lost final fair and square, no need for any conspiracies.
 
Short and into the Pitch is Prasidh's stock ball. If that fails, he will bowl even shorter :hasan2

Huge uproar about that catch on social media …Rohit could have reviewed it

Social media is social.media. saw slow mo reviews and it was clean. Tc commentators had no issues as well. But rohit had the chance to review it - he didn't his fault. No match awareness. Seriously this is getting tiring. Ind got beaten by the better team on the final day. Simple as that. Blaming everyone except ind team performance is silly..
 
Mukesh getting pounded in this over

He was on fire last match

Guys stick to this match discussion only
 
Yes kohli. Have you seen kohli bat in t20s even.in ipl. The 2022 t20 WC sf he was so slow and ind was 110 or so in 17 overs. It was only dur to pandya hitting in last 3 overs for 50-60 runs which gotnind to 170 and it was woefully insufficient. T20 has evolved it's all about big scores and big sr. No run a ball knocks. A lot of people are blinded by that 1 kohli knock against pak in the t20 WC game
 
AXAR must be reported for throwing wataa ball
Check his left arm angle.
Strangely TV umpire not checking this.

Kohli in IPL and Kohli in T20 international are two different things… don’t compare it
 
Lol Wade keeps exposing tailenders to the yorkers and then shows disappointment.
 
There are some guys in Indian XI doesn't even deserve to be in the India's 4th string side. Too much IPL influence.
 
Kohli in IPL and Kohli in T20 international are two different things… don’t compare it
Kohli even in t20 internationals is slow now for the modern game. No need for accumulators now. Ind got to 235 today. And international level bowling is better than ipl by the way and kohli plays half his ipl games at run fast bengaluru..

But yeah that's a topic for another thread not this one.. looks like bishnoi clinched it for ind here...
 
It probably si not serious series. Infact T20 itself is a farce of a format. International T20, world T20 is a joke. Anyone can beat anyone. India/Pakistan/Australia/NZ/SA/England all can beat each other.This format was created to bridge the gap between smaller minnow teams and bigger teams. Even here only bigger teams dominate.
 
Wade even at this age has some energy left. This is a matter of solidifying his spot in the XI for world T20. Jos Inglis is toast of Aussies right now.
 
India wins by 44 runs…. India’s B+C team thrashed World Champions Australia… Congratulations!!!
 
This is what T20 is good for. An evening out for friends and family something they could do in the IPL. SO no need of international T20s.
 
All hail India as they continue dominating the world cricket day in and day out. Format changes but domination still stays barring some fluke losses.

Biggest motivation factor for everyone is every T20 series with India is an IPL audition. It can literally make you a millionaire. Keith Jamieson after one good Test series against India suddenly bought for a lot of money.
 
Congratulations Indians but at the same time I feel sorry for you. Your team always wins when it's OK to lose and fails when losing is not an option. Hope things change for u in future.

Current bunch is having scars. Scarred side no matter what they do they will always find a way to falter at crucial stage. Once these guys get phased out INdia probably will win these moments with lesser talented side. I like the way how 2022 under-19 team for India won. Nobody is stand out. But as a unit they were very good. Hero worshipping, century worshipping will not be tehre next time.
 
Good performance - Rinku looks like a terrifying batsman. Hopefully he plays the WC
 
India on a dream run like a hybrid machine it's 13 wins in 14 games amazing feat they have totally decimated Australia in all but one game

You could replace Australia with X in that one game. India was going to lose that. They probably wold have given SOuth Africa first world cup had they met them as India has become worse chokers than them. SA had one thing to do. Just get past Australia.
 
Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad gave a telling manifestation of their talent with twinkling fifties, the catalyst of India's 44-run win over Australia in the second T20I in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday. India are now leading the five-match series 2-0. Opener Jaiswal led the charge of India's young brigade with a sparkling 53 off 25 balls, guiding India to a massive 235 for four in the company of Ishan (52 off 32 balls) and Gaikwad (58 off 43 balls).

Leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi (3/32) then muffled the Australian top-order with two quick blows, and the visitors were eventually limited to 191 for nine despite aggressive knocks by Tim David (37 off 22 balls) and Marcus Stoinis (45 off 25 balls).

Pacer Prasidh Krishna grabbed three wickets to accentuate Australia's fall as they lost five wickets for 16 runs.

Australia needed to score at 11.8 runs per over to hunt down India's total. Openers Matthew Short and Steve Smith made an urgent beginning, procuring 31 runs in the first two overs.

But Bishnoi jettisoned Short in the third over and Josh Inglis, who made a hundred in the first match at Visakhapatnam, in the fifth over as Australia slipped to 39 for two.

It soon transpired to 58 for four after Smith fell to Prasidh and left-arm spinner Axar Patel gobbled up Glenn Maxwell, as the Indian bowlers produced a disciplined effort.

However, Australia found some fight through David and Stoinis, who pummelled the Indian attack for 81 runs for an entertaining fifth wicket stand that came in just above seven overs.

Both David and Stoinis are capable of clearing the fence at will, and the Aussie duo did exactly that.

David hammered pacer Mukesh Kumar for 19 runs in the 10th over as Australia made 104 for 4 in the 10 overs and looked good for a comeback.

But Bishnoi bagged the crucial wicket of David, who lifted him to Gaikwad at long-on.

Stoinis too did not last long as his attempted heave off Mukesh ended with Axar near the straight boundary.

From that point, an Indian victory was a mere formality.

But for all that, the Indian camp should profusely thank three young, talented batters - Jaiswal, Kishan and Gaikwad.

Australian captain Matthew Wade's decision to bowl first keeping in mind the dew factor did not pay off as his bowlers faltered against the Indian troika.

The ball came off the pitch a tad slow but the Aussie bowlers were wayward, offering width to Indian batsmen.

They were happy to oblige, especially Jaiswal. He took on Sean Abbot in a breathtaking fashion.

The Australian pacer rightly took the pace off his deliveries but he erred in the line and length, offering a chance for the Indian opener to free his hands.

In the fourth over, the left-hander punished Abbot with a sequence of 4, 4, 4, 6, 6 for 24 runs, coming through two square cuts, a late cut and two pulls as India motored on in the Power Play segment which produced 71 runs.

Jaiswal brought up his fifty in 24 balls, but he could not extend the innings as a rather wild slash off pacer Nathan Ellis was grabbed by Adam Zampa at backward square leg.

But that did not really affect the Indian innings as Gaikwad combined with Kishan, who made his second fifty in as many matches, to garner 87 runs for a bruising second wicket alliance.

After the return of Jaiswal, the visitors might have hoped to slow down India's march, but the right-hand-left-hand combination never allowed them to dictate the pace of the match. India touched 101 for 1 after 10 overs.

India progressed at around 11.5 runs per over in the middle phase of the innings despite spinners Zampa and Tanveer Sangha bowling relatively better spells.

Kishan reached his half-century in 29 balls with a massive pulled six off leg-spinner Sangha over mid-wicket.

Gaikwad, whose lofted shot over bowler Zampa's head was a treat to watch, too reached his fifty off 39 balls with a double off pacer Ellis.

It might appear an industrious innings, but Gaikwad's solidity allowed others to launch into the Australian attack.

Kishan too could not build on his innings as he lost balance while trying to wallop Stoinis out of the ground, hoicking a simple catch to Ellis in the deep.

However, Rinku Singh chipped in with his customary cameo (31 off 9 balls) and ensured that India finished strongly.

The left-handed Rinku robbed 25 runs off the 19th over bowled by Abbot as he leaked 56 runs off three overs in total.

The final over bowled by Ellis went for 20 runs as India reached a total that remained out of Aussies' reach.

Seeing how indian fans are to their ipl stars, India would be charitable enough to gift SA their title. They would go as far as saying, it's their first title, chalta hai lol
 
India have complete dominance over Aussies in T-20, if u check last couple of India’s tour to Australia, India won couple of T-20 series in Australia

Fluke win can work once, not every time
 
India’s dominance over Australia has started in way back in year 2007 WC semis when India thrashed Aussies… still remember Yuvraj Singh’s Six off Bret Lee

what a hilarious comment considering they just destroyed them, at home, in the final to lift the world cup

India just need to figure out Travis Head. They will be fine for odi next time. Travis is great but bowling consistently short and right into him is one weakness that can be exploited.
 
What is Steve Smith doing playing T20s in 2023? He shouldn’t even be playing ODIs anymore, judging by his performance in the recent World Cup and Australia are playing him in T20s. Baffling decision.
