Nat outfield delays throw in Nagpur T20I as India seeks level series

Nagpur (Maharashtra)[India]September 23 (ANI): The India-Australia toss for the second T20I has been delayed due to a wet pitch at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Nagpur.

The field inspection will take place at 7:00 PM IST. After completing the pitch inspection, the umpires will answer a call when the game is to start. The outfield is wet because it rained heavily in Nagpur on Thursday.

India is down 0-1 in the three-game series after losing the first T20I in Mohali by four wickets. Australia chased the massive 209-run target in 19.2 overs. The Nagpur match is a game you have to win for India to stay alive in the series.

India’s pace attack is likely to sharpen with the possible inclusion of Jasprit Bumrah, who has recovered from the injury according to Suryakumar Yadav. Australia will likely participate on the same side.

India squad: Rohit Sharma (C), Dinesh Karthik (World Cup), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Rishabh Pant , Ravichandran Ashwin and Deepak Hooda, Australian Team: Aaron Finch (C), Matthew Wade (World Cup), Cameron Green, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis, Tim David, Pat Cummins, Nathan Ellis, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Kane Richardson, Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar and Daniel Sams.
