IND vs AUS, 2nd T20I: Rohit Sharma-led India win by 6 wickets, level series by 1-1

Published on

Nagpur: India has won the second T20I against Australia in Nagpur after the game was reduced to 8 overs due to wet outfield.

After choosing to bowl first, India restricted Australia for 90 runs in 8 overs and then chased it successfully within 7.2 overs.

India captain Rohit Sharma became the star of the show as he single-handedly scored 46 runs. The superb knock of Sharma took India closer to win within 8 overs. Dinesh Karthik then finished in style as he hit a six and a four on two balls that he faced.

I had my plans – Dinesh Karthik

After winning the game, Karthik said, “There was not too much talk. Rohit was trying to tell me this is what the bowler would do, I had my plans. As a middle order batter it is about execution. It feels good to hit the winning runs. Ro with the bat and Axar with the ball stood out, good to see Bumrah back. We need to take the momentum forward. 1-1 is a good score. You want to play those crunch games. But more importantly, we are happy to have put up a show for the crowd with no injuries.”
