India Vs Australia Second T20 Match

Australian team after long marked the debut of a player as a captain. And what a fantastic debut match as a captain you have by defeating a team that won the first T20 world cup and also who hosts the T20 extravaganza tournament called IPL every year.

Australia won the first T20 world cup easily given some very explosive batting display by the top order and then bowlers did a great job defending the score of 171 runs. Man of the match for the first T20 match played yesterday MS Wade scored quick 72 runs out of 43 balls that include 5 boundaries and 3 sixes. Captain GJ Bailey for Aussie has a great day as captain and he utilized his resources very well.

For Indian it seems nothing is going to be fine overseas, they criticized experienced players and poor fielding in tests but the young legs of the team Indian in twenty twenty matches also failed to change the fortunes of team India. And I bet in case the team coach, captain and other people responsible for the selection on the playing eleven ; if plan to switch to wait and watch strategy as in test matches then Indian is going to loose the T20 series 2-0 as well.

Personally I feel India need to include experienced player like Irfan Pathan in place of Vinay or Parveen Kumar. Bowling of both these is looking ordinary. A losing team can’t afford to play with the same combination but team India has different opinions and I am not sure when we will see new faces in the Tests, ODIS and the T20’s. For me it’d be a nice approach if you can restrict the amount of same players playing in the entire formats to 30%. This way you can have more on bench talent in the team and in case of replacements because of injuries; out of form or players opt to be rested. A player performing well in T20s can easily be asked to get into the ODI matches and someone doing well in OIDS can be selected for test matches.

Let us see what is on the cards for team Indian on the occasion of second T20 match.
