AUS vs IND Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the second AUS vs IND T20I.
The second T20I of the ongoing India’s tour of Australia will be played tomorrow as the proceedings return to the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Unlike the recently concluded three-match ODI series, India have the lead with them which they would be hoping to convert into an unassailable one at the end of this match.
Other than losing the first T20I, another significant concern for Australia is their ever-increasing list of injured players which has even put captain Aaron Finch in doubt for tomorrow’s match.
Latest from the Australia squad:
Nathan Lyon added for last two T20Is
Mitchell Swepson stays with the T20 squad
Cameron Green released for Australia A match
Aaron Finch to have scans this afternoon and be assessed ahead of tomorrow’s game#AUSvIND

In Finch’s absence, batsman Steven Smith could be handed the captaincy for the first time since the Cape Town Ball Tampering scandal. If not Smith, wicket-keeper batsman Matthew Wade could be in line to become Australia’s 11th T20I captain.

While Australia and India’s last T20I encounter resulted in an 11-run Indian victory in Canberra yesterday, both sides’ last five matches against each other have resulted in each one of them winning two each.
India, who’ve won both their T20Is against Australia in Sydney so far, had defeated them last at the venue in 2018 when all-rounder Krunal Pandya’s career-best bowling figures and captain Virat Kohli’s 19th T20I half-century had secured a six-wicket victory to draw level the series 1-1.
