235/4 (20.0/20)
191/9 (20.0/20)
India beat Australia by 44 runs
Right then, that is it from this game and India are a game away from sealing the series victory. There are still three more games to go and Australia will need to win all three if they are to conjure up a comeback. The next game will be played on Tuesday, the 28th of November at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. That match will begin at 7 pm IST (1.30 pm GMT) but you can join us a lot earlier for the build-up. Till then, take care and goodbye!
Yashasvi Jaiswal is the Player of the Match for his blistering half-century. Jaiswal says that it was really special for him and he enjoyed it out in the middle and simply tried to be brave and play his shots, which he has been told to do as well by the captain and the coaches. Adds that for him, it is always about developing his own game and he is still learning. On his encounter with Ruturaj Gaikwad after the runout in the previous game, he says it was certainly his own mistake and he apologized in the previous game itself and Ruturaj assured him that they are fine. Says that he has worked on his fitness and is trying to play all the shots and feels like mental strength matters a lot because everyone is very good.
The Indian skipper, Suryakumar Yadav heaps praise on the boys for taking off pressure from him. Adds that they took the onus on themselves. He also expresses that he told them to be prepared to bat first as a  lot of dew was expected. They came in the evening yesterday and saw a lot of dew. Mentions when India needed around 40 runs in 24 balls in the previous game, the composure Rinku Singh showed was something brilliant. Adds that even in this game, the way Rinku played some beautiful shots late in the innings reminded them of someone. [sighs] 'Everyone'-who has done that for India.
Andre Borovec, the coach of Australia is down for a chat. He says that with the bowling, the margin of error was very fine and they couldn't make inroads. Adds that the plans and the intent are there but these are unforgiving conditions. Mentions that in general, the execution needs to improve at critical moments.
The Presentation ceremony...
Rinku Singh is down for a quick chat. He starts by saying it is a very good dressing room. Adds that he feels good to be playing with everyone and under Suryakumar Yadav. Mentions that his batting position may vary, he may have to come to bat at either 3,4 and 5 depending on the match situations and he prepares in that way. He expresses that VVS Laxman sir told him to bat in the same fashion and not try to tinker things.
Earlier in the game, Matthew Wade won the toss and opted to put the opposition into bat which seemed the right thing to do given the dew factor but the pitch turned out to be a bit of a belter. The Indian openers broke the game open with their fiery shots and put India on top. The top three all scored fifties with Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ishan Kishan playing fiery knocks and Ruturaj Gaikwad playing more of an anchor role. The innings was finished off wonderfully with a 9-ball-31 run cameo by Rinku Singh and India got to over 230 runs. As for the Aussie bowling, there was not much to write home about apart from the wickets Nathan Ellis took but their spinners were largely ineffective. Coming to the chase, it was always going to be a tough ask but with no 50-plus score in the top order, Australia were handed a thumping defeat.
For the Aussies, they needed a couple to go on to score big which didn't happen. Their top order failed but Tim David and Marcus Stoinis got them back into the game with a blistering 81-run stand. Once David fell, wickets started to tumble and the lower order did not contribute a lot and in the end, the Aussies fell way short. However, skipper Matthew Wade did get away a few lusty blows with the game long done and scored 42 off just 23 balls.
That's a big win for the Indians and they have now taken a 2-0 lead in the series. It was their batters who set it up, fifties from the top three and a handy cameo towards the end from Rinku took them to a score above par. Australia though came out all guns blazing but the Indian spinners were brilliant. Both Ravi Bishnoi and Axar Patel got crucial wickets and stemmed the run flow. Especially the former but the latter was the pick for the way he bowled. The pacers did travel the distance but came back strongly towards the end to give India a strong win as Prasidh Krishna picked up three wickets.

Drinks break! What a fast and furious first half of the chase! Wickets galore for the Indian spinners but Australia have somehow managed to keep scoring at 10 runs an over which isn't quite enough but certainly enough for this match to be anyone's game. India do have their noses in front and a couple of more wickets should do the job for them but if Marcus Stoinis and Tim David stay till the death overs, no boundary is big enough for those two blokes.

Axar Patel To Glenn Maxwell OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Axar Patel has the last laugh here and Australia in a spot of bother being three down inside the Powerplay. This is dropped slightly short around middle, the ball holds in the pitch as well, Glenn Maxwell makes a bit of room and looks for the big shot down the ground but ends up splicing it down to long on where Yashasvi Jaiswal takes a simple catch. Good, aggressive captaincy from Suryakumar Yadav as well.

Ravi Bishnoi To Josh Inglis OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! In the air and has been grabbed by Tilak Varma sprinting backward from mid on. An exceptional display of fielding from the southpaw! Full and near the off stump line. The batter, Josh Inglis lunged forward for the slog and failed to time it off the meat of the blade. The ball skewed up just behind mid on from where Varma ran and held on to a stunning reverse cup. The TV umpire had a look for the neatness of the catch and it was all fine. Bishnoi with his second wicket of the match.
The umpires have gone upstairs to check for a fair catch. Josh Inglis enquired if Varma put the ball on the ground while tumbling over but the replays roll in and the catch is clean. OUT comes up on the big screen.

Ravi Bishnoi To Matthew Short OUT!
OUT! CHOPPED ON! The ploy of bringing the wrist spinner inside the powerplay yields sweet fruits for the Men in Blue. Full and outside the off. Googly once again from the bowler. Short looks to drive through the line and plays the wrong trajectory. He gets an inside edge and the ball clatters onto the sticks. The first blood is drawn!

Ravi Bishnoi To Matthew Short
Fuller than a length, wrong'un at the stumps. Short made a bit of room to get the drive but got the thickish inside edge towards fine leg. Spirited effort from Krishna in the deep who put his body on the line to save the probable boundary. He ensured that the foot did not touch the cushions in the attempt and kept it down to a brace.
