t202ndNew Delhi, Thursday, January 28 – A do or die match for Australia is to take place at Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne tomorrow against India after Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side restricted them at 151 runs while they were chasing the target of 189 in 20 overs at Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.

Aussies are usually not on the losing face thanks to spirit to do well in each tournament. They are strong in their den as a result of self belief to do well all the time. A wonderful showcase of sheer talent by Virat Kohli set the foundation of India’s success in first T20 over game that made them get a lead of 1-0 in 3-match T20 series. Australia may increase pace of attack in the 2nd T20I as losing isn’t their habit. Potential of Indian cricketers can’t be kept aside.

If truth be told then India are underestimated often despite giving tough competition to the rivals. It is perhaps because the batting order had collapsed a number of times regardless of reaching so close to the target. Sometime fast bowlers do not come up with playing a bit with pace while delivering their over. The moment rivals are set on crease, it becomes tough for India to stop them from putting humongous total on the scoreboard. The stadium may get crowded to second much loved team as the action is to begin on Friday, January 29.
