As the buzz settles around the concussion substitute India take on Australia in the absence all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja in the second T20 International on Sunday. A series win will be an ideal confidence booster for India before the Test series. Having won two matches in Canberra, Virat Kohli and his boys will aim to win the next two matches at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). Following their victory on the back of India’s first concussion substitute Yuzvendra Chahal’s terrific bowling display, India will enter the second game with a lot more confidence even though Jadeja’s batting lower down the order will be missed. It was his unbeaten 44 off 23 balls made the difference.
However, for Kohli, he would expect that he wouldn’t need contributions from lower-middle order and the top five batsmen would be good enough to put up a good total on board or may be chase down a tricky target.
