Streak on the line: Can India save this series and the streak?

India vs Australia 2nd T20I Preview India Need To Win To Save Series Against Australia

India vs Australia 2nd T20I Preview India Need To Win To Save Series Against Australia

"Kane reported some left side pain at training prior to the opening T20I in Vizag", Australia team physio David Beakley said in the statement.

"He is obviously a class act".

(But) I'm really happy with the way my game is going at the moment. "Playing quite consistent cricket has helped", Cummins said. I have not played too much white ball cricket, so looking forward to more of it. "It's a totally different challenge to the red ball, which might swing around a bit more", Cummins said in Bangalore. "So many different things have fallen into place, including a bit of luck". While Australia needed six runs in the last two balls of the match, Pat Cummins hit one four and then took two runs to secure that game for his team.

With the focus firmly on the 50-over World Cup in England in May, India would 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 T20I here Wednesday.

Talking about his batting, Pat Cummins said, "I am pretty happy batting down at 8 or 9". Hopefully, I have got a batsman at the other end who can really cash in, especially in Tests.

Talking about thriving in tense moments, Cummins said: "You play worldwide sport because you want to be in moments where you can win a game". I might have big shots like a lot of other batsmen, and I have really enjoyed it.

"Sometimes when the game feels like it's nearly lost, that's when you feel like you can relax and you've got nothing to lose".

Gruesome photographs from the scene showed charred bodies, including children, lying across the platforms and tracks. Surveillance cameras captured the incident, showing bystanders on fire and running to escape the inferno.

"It (leading a series) has not happened for us in a while in an overseas series".

While India will give its best in the all-important second T20I to save the series, Australia, on the other hand, will be keen to wrap up the series.

With only a handful of worldwide games to be played ahead of the ICC World Cup, India's focus may surely be on getting their strategy and combination right, but the hosts will also need to tighten a few screws going into the second T20I if they are to avoid a whitewash.

Last time Australia was seen in one-dayers in January, the side was donned a strip similar to what Allan Border's side wore in a corresponding one-day series against the Indians - all the way back in 1986 - with a green strip across a canary yellow shirt.

Cummins loved the bowler friendly conditions in Vizag but is expecting more runs from the surface at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium here. In T20s you prepare for yorkers, slower balls, but over there you knew good balls were going to be good enough.

"So by the end. the wickets might be a bit more exhausted and spin a bit more like the Indian wickets".
