India vs Australia 2nd T20: Jaspreet Bumrah is Fully Fit to Play the Match
The second match of the three T20 match series between India and Australia will be played at the Vidarbha Cricket Stadium in Nagpur today. To put it in the biggest cliche tone of cricket, it is a do-or-die match for Team India. If the Indian team loses today, the series will have to be lost. If you win, then there will be an occasion for celebration.
A celebration that we haven’t celebrated in five years. The last time our team achieved the feat of defeating Australia in a T20 International on Indian soil was in 2017. Since then Australia has beaten us on our own land four times in a row.
India vs Australia 2nd T20: Bumrah is completely fit
In a media interaction a day before the match, India’s Suryakumar Yadav said that there is nothing to worry about fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah’s fitness. Bumrah is a perfect fit. After this statement, it is expected that India’s best fast bowler Bumrah can play in this match.
In Bumrah’s absence, the Indian bowling has been badly exposed first in the Asia Cup and now in the first match against Australia. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has failed to handle the pressure of the 19th over in three consecutive matches. Harshal Patel’s comeback has also been a forgettable one.
Matthew Wade, hitting the half-pitch, was hitting the slower ball outside the boundary as if practicing in a net session, not a match. In such a situation, the return of Jasprit Bumrah has become very important. Otherwise, Australia will again try its best to take advantage of India’s weak bowling.
India vs Australia 2nd T20: Rain can spoil the fun
India and Australia players could not practice on Thursday due to rain in Nagpur. There is a possibility of rain on today’s match as well. Groundsmen removed the cover on Thursday afternoon to see the pitch, but the cover was soon put on again due to the threat of drizzle. An international match will be played in this stadium for the first time in three years.
