Australia bounce back to level T20 series with India

Beherendorff dreams of Tests after T20 win Australia's team bus window smashed after T20 win in India

When will the 2nd T20 between India and Australia be played?

Behrendorff's figures were the best for Australia against India in T20 cricket. Kohli walked down to the middle to take over the proceedings, only to be dismissed two deliveries later for a duck. "He bowled in good areas, he was pretty tight, credit to him, getting wickets with the new ball and they built on that very well". Australia has already lost the ODI series with a big margin of 4-1, if they lose this match they will lose the T20I series too, and will be going home empty handed.

Focus will once again be on the visitors' batting line-up, which has been clueless against wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. That tonic was provided by a young left-arm paceman by the name of Jason Behrendorff.The rookie speedster broke the back of India's batting in the very first over of the match as he first trapped Rohit Sharma in front of the wicket with a ideal in-swinger and then managed to induce an inside edge off skipper Virat Kohli's bat and caught the ball himself when it ricocheted off the thigh guard. However, India did win that one as well, taking the lead in the three-series match.

After won the ODI series by 4-1, India started the T-20 global series by winning the first T-20 worldwide match via Duckworth/Lewis method in a rain-marred match played in Ranchi on October 7 last.

After the early loss of David Warner, the stand-in skipper for this series in the absence of Steven Smith, the tourists looked to have recovered well through the in-form Aaron Finch and the struggling Glenn Maxwell, who was still at the crease after the Powerplay overs were done.

Skipper Warner has hinted that his team needs to play the brand of cricket Australia are known for ahead of the must-win game in Guwahati.

He then had Manish Pandey caught behind for six runs before Shikhar Dhawan became his fourth victim when he was brilliantly caught by stand-in captain David Warner. One ball later, Kohli found himself cramped for room, forcing him to play across the line but only resulted in a caught and bowled dismissal for Behrendorff.

"To get the ball up there, swing the ball, hit guys on the pads and nick blokes off, those are the things we talk about in our meetings", Behrendorff said.

Pacemen Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andre Tye and Marcus Stoinis took a wicket each.
