India vs Australia Highlights, Ind vs Aus 2nd T20: India were undone for a second straight T20I by the ‘Maxi Show’ as Glenn Maxwell scored an unbeaten 113 from 55 balls to take Australia past the 191 run target in the last over. After seeing Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni bulldoze the Aussie bowlers, Maxwell took heart from Chinnaswamy’s small boundary and took the attack to India. Despite losing Stoinis and Finch early, Australia continued confidently with Maxwell and D’Arcy Short. Even when Short fell, Maxwell continued unabated and got the team past the winning line with Handscomb by the side.
Earlier, India scored 190/4 from the 20 overs with Kohli and MS Dhoni upping the ante in the last five overs. As things slowed down following the dismissal of KL Rahul, who played another sublime knock, India were provided the charge by the two ‘biggies’ of Indian cricket. They put together 100 runs for the fourth wicket in no time to suggest the 126 runs in Vizag were just a blip.
With the win, Australia have sealed the T20Is series by 2-0 margin and inflicted first home defeat for Virat Kohli as captain across formats.
