India vs Australia 2017: India's probable XI for second T20I”

India will not look to make any change to the playing XI which Shikhar Dhawan back in it. Hardik Pandya, who was a bit expensive in the first game, may make way for T20 specialist fast bowler Ashish Nehra as India look to wrap up the series.

India are leading the series 1-0 against Australia.

The Australian Cricket team was dealt with a huge blow after their skipper Steven Smith was ruled out of the three-match T20I series against India due to a shoulder injury.

"It's about following on from what Steve's values are and what we do to respect him".

"I'm not going to sit here and say we should or we should not. That's all I can do to the best of my ability and obviously it's up to the players to follow directions and leads", he said.

"We've all got minds of our own. I look forward to watching the boys turn the tides in the next 2 T20s ✈️" captioned Steve Smith in his latest post while in the first class of an Australian airline.

With Darren Lehmann leaving the tour of India to Saker, the schedule would be a key factor if Australia chose to lighten the load for the head coach. What's hurting them most is the tendency to lose quick wickets in the middle overs, especially to Indian spinners.

"From a playing point of view we've just got to concentrate on playing cricket", Warner said. You can't worry that a collapse is going to happen. No one is anxious about that at all. We've just got to keep going out there and keep backing ourselves 100 per cent. Warner said the only way to do that is to instil belief that, "when we go well we do very, very well". "At the end of the day no one means to get out". "No matter what the circumstance is we try and win every game possible". Just getting a victory over here - it's going to be tough, it's going to be challenging. You have to be at your best to beat an opposition in their country.

If rain stays away and we get a full game, India may well wrap up the T20I series as well and continue their rise in the ICC rankings. Last time an worldwide match held in Guwahati was in 2010 where India face New Zealand in 50 overs game at the Nehru stadium.
