India beats Australia to level up 1-1 in the series.
Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to field first. He batted at his own pace while wickets fell around him. Matthew Wade’s 43 off 20 balls led Australia to a score of 90/5 in a match that was reduced to an eight overs a side contest due to a two-hour delay caused by a wet outfield. Rohit responded by scoring an unbeaten 46 off 20 balls and leading the Indian chase. Dinesh Karthik finished the match by hitting a six and a four off the first two balls of the last over, which were the only ones he faced in the entire match. The three-match series is now level 1-1. Chasing a target of 91, Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten 46 steered India to a six-wicket win in the second T20I at the VCA Stadium in Nagpur.
