Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli made the rain-revised chase look easy

Australia rode on a disciplined bowling effort to restrict India to a paltry 118 in the second Twenty20 worldwide at the jam-packed Assam Cricket Association (ACA) Barsapara Stadium here on Tuesday.

After rain hit Saturday's Twenty 20 between India and Australia at the JSCA International Stadium Complex, the host country chased the Kangaroos' revised 48 run target and won the match in the last over at the loss of one wicket.

The team, under the leadership of Virat Kohli, thus remains the overwhelming favourite to win the match giving the new venue of worldwide cricket in the country the scope to see a memorable initiation.

Once dew settled in it was tougher for the bowlers and an easy task for the duo as they took the visitors home with 8 wickets and 4.3 overs in hand.

The bowling will largely depend on pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile and spinner Adam Zampa.

Behrendorff then had Manish Pandey caught behind with one that swung away just enough before Dhawan fell to a spectacular running catch by opposition captain David Warner. They could only manage a modest total on the pitch of Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati.

Earlier, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal declared the stadium open for worldwide cricket, minutes before the toss was won by the Australian skipper.

Skipper Warner has hinted that his team needs to play the brand of cricket Australia are known for ahead of the must-win game in Guwahati.

Teams: India: Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah.

When both the teams arrived in the evening by a chartered flight, the mood was evident as fans shouted "India India" at the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport. The toss will take place half an hour prior to the first ball - 06:30 PM IST. "I look forward to watching the boys turn the tides in the next 2 T20s".

India had earlier reduced Australia to 118 for 8 in 18.4 overs when weather intervened, with Kuldeep Yadav finishing with 2 for 16 and Jasprit Bumrah taking 2 for 17. Australia's India tour features limited-overs fixtures only comprising of five ODIs and three T20Is.
