Match reduced to 8 overs
As per expectation, rain played spoilsport in Nagpur where India is taking on Australia in the 2nd T20I. Due to wet outfield, toss got delayed for almost 2.5 hours and India chose to bowl first.
Australia put 90 runs on board in the eight overs and India is now chasing the score to mark win in the second game.
