Sep 23, 2022

Nagpur (Maharashtra) [India], September 23 : The match between India and Australia will finally take place and it has been reduced to eight overs per side here at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Nagpur.
The toss between India and Australia for the second T20I has been further delayed due to a wet outfield and there will be two overs of Powerplay.
Both the captains Rohit Sharma and Aaron Finch will step out for the toss at 9.15 pm IST. After doing the pitch inspection, the on-field umpires Nitin Menon and KN Ananthapadmanabhan took the decision of having an 8-over-a-side match call which will start at 9.30 pm IST. The outfield was wet because it rained heavily on Thursday in Nagpur.
India are trailing 0-1 in the three-match series as India lost the first T20I in Mohali to Australia by four wickets where Australia chased down a 209-run target in 19.2 overs. Therefore, this match becomes a must-win game for India.
