IND vs AUS Live Updates: The start of the second T20I between India and Australia has been delayed due to a wet outfield. The on-field umpires and the fourth umpire conducted a pitch inspection at 7 PM, and came to a conclusion that the toss cannot happen just yet. The next inspection will be held around 8 PM. The death bowling has been India’s Achilles heel, failing to defend a 208-run total in the serious opener. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s form, especially, has been the topic of discussion. The star pacer was taken to the cleaners in the first T20I, as well as the Asia Cup. It will be interesting to see whether Bumrah makes his comeback, and if he does, who will make way for the star pacer. Australia lead the series 1-0, and are likely to stick with the same playing XI.
