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.

Australia win!

Finishes it off with a boundary. Banged short, Maxwell opens his body up and smacks it to extra cover for a boundary. Australia win by 7 wickets with two balls to spare. Glenn Maxwell unbeaten on 113 runs from 55 balls. Amazing inning!

Maxwell walks down the pitch, converts a full delivery into a fulltoss and sends it straight down the ground for a six!

22:24 (IST)27 Feb 2019
Last over

Kaul to bowl the final over. Australia need 9 runs to win. Another nail biter finish

22:20 (IST)27 Feb 2019
Maxwell century!

HUNDRED! What a knock from Glenn Maxwell this. 100 runs from 50 balls with six boundaries and eight sixes!

22:17 (IST)27 Feb 2019

A no ball and a six! This is over waist height but doesn't matter to Maxwell. He is yard ahead of the crease and still manages to hit it for a six with utter disdain

22:14 (IST)27 Feb 2019

Siddharth Kaul bowls at 118 kmph but this is in the slot for Maxwell to continue his big hitting. Muscles it over the bowler's head for a six. Collects his sixth six

22:12 (IST)27 Feb 2019

Maxwell taking on India's best bowler at the moment and coming out on top. Two boundaries in the over - one effortlessly over cover and another after reading the slower one and swing taking it to the rope having beaten the fielder. Australia are 159/3 after 17 overs

22:07 (IST)27 Feb 2019
End of Chahal's spell

Glenn Maxwell keeping India under pressure. 16 runs from Chahal's final over and he finishes for 0/47. Australia are 147/3

EQUATION: 44 needed from 24 balls

22:05 (IST)27 Feb 2019

A person in front of the sight screen hasn't upset Maxwell's concentration. Reverse sweep to Chahal who looked to bowl it on the off side but it is smacked over deep point for Maxwell's fourth six

22:04 (IST)27 Feb 2019

Chahal comes into the attack and the big hitting doesn't stop. Drifts on to the pads, Maxwell kneels and hammers the sweep over deep backward square for another sixer. 

22:02 (IST)27 Feb 2019

FETCH. THAT! A good over until this delivery. Slapped down the ground by Maxwell and that is a big, big hit. Backed away, created room and hammers it down the ground for a sixer

21:54 (IST)27 Feb 2019

Back-to-back fifties for Maxwell. Doesn't have a good record in T20s in Bengaluru but he's taken just 28 balls to get to the half century mark tonight. The chase is well and truly on

21:52 (IST)27 Feb 2019

Maxwell continuing unabated. First he guides a delivery straying on the pads towards fine leg for a boundary. Ends the over by muscling the slower one for a six. Into the deep mid-wicket stands for a six! 13 runs from the over. Australia 108/3 after 12 overs

21:47 (IST)27 Feb 2019

Vijay Shankar gets the much-needed breakthrough. Leg break by Shankar, D'Arcy Short is into the swing already and slices it towards cover. KL Rahul takes the catch with ease. Short gone for 40 from 28 balls and Australia are 95/3

21:40 (IST)27 Feb 2019

To compound Chahal's agony, Maxwell smacks him for a six next ball. Nicely looped up by Chahal but it is in the arc for Maxwell. Plays it with the spin and times it beautifully to clear the rope for a maximum

21:39 (IST)27 Feb 2019

Dropped! Close call for D A'rcy Short. Googly outside off by Chahal, Short sliced the cut and Pant spilled a straightforward catch diving forward at cover-point

21:37 (IST)27 Feb 2019

Another boundary to close the over. That's a gift from Krunal Pandya. Tossed full and in the zone, Short pumps it flat straight back over the bowler's head for a one-bounce four

21:35 (IST)27 Feb 2019

D'Arcy Short with a lovely late cut to collect a boundary. Waits till the ball almost reaches Dhoni's gloves before getting bat to it and beats the fielder inside the circle. 

21:26 (IST)27 Feb 2019

Another boundary to Australia's kitty. D'Arcy Short getting into the act. Short of length by Shankar, Short gets on to it and pulls it into the fine leg fence

21:25 (IST)27 Feb 2019

Vijay Shankar to Maxwell at 135 kmph, this is short and wide of off, the Aussie swivels and pulls it backwards of square leg with some confidence

India vs Australia Live Cricket Score 2nd T20I, IND vs AUS Live Streaming: The focus remains firmly on the World Cup but India would also be desperate to ensure that a home series does not slip out of their grip when they take on Australia in the second and final T20 International here on Wednesday. India are 0-1 down after an inexplicably poor batting performance led to a three-wicket loss in the lung-opener in Visakhapatnam. The below-par 126 with the bat on Sunday denied bowlers a decent shot at securing a win even though the Jasprit Bumrah-led attack did all it could to keep the home team in the game till the final over of the match.
