India despite smashing 211 runs in 1st T20I in Delhi, ended up losing the game by 6 wickets due to their poor bowling in death overs. David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen's unbelievable 4th wicket partnership took away the game from India which meant the efforts of Indian batters like Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya unfortunately ended in vain.
Indian fans will be hoping a better performance from their key bowlers like Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel in 2nd T20I, meanwhile Yuzvendra Chahal could be a match winner in today's game as pitch is likely to be on the slower side and is likely to assist the spinners. Toss could be a crucial role in today's game between these two sides.
