After playing under hazardous air quality in Delhi the two teams will now move to Rajkot. The weather in Rajkot will not be a happy sight for both fans and the cricketers as a cyclone threat looms over the second T20. If the match is washed out due to rain then a series win for India will be out of the window.

Rohit Sharma along with the Indian team will be concerned about the match as the hosts will want to level the series in Rajkot. Indian bowlers will have to pull up their socks in the second game and should be able to execute their plans well in high-pressure moments. With India’s premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah not in the side, youngsters like Khaleel Ahmed, Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar will have to step up in the death overs.

During the first T20I, the visitors outclassed India in every department. They bowled at good lengths and did not allow Indian batsman to free their arms. They were also good in the field as they saved some valuable runs which proved to be the game-changing factor in the match.
