Melbourne T20I: India look to seal series amid rain threat

January 28, 2016 5:40 PM |

Melbourne T20IThe second T20I between India and Australia is scheduled to be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on January 29, Friday. Melbourne T20I is likely to start at 2:00 PM IST. Melbourne weather looks grim and grey but match hours are likely to remain unaffected.

India currently lead the 3-match T20 series, 1-0. An all-round performance at Adelaide helped the visitors register a comfortable victory over Australia in the first T20I.

Weather during Melbourne T20I is playing its own games. The city has been receiving good rains since past 48 hours and more rain is forecast for tomorrow as well. However, the probability of rain is high during the first half of the day. Melbourne T20I will start at around 6:00 pm local time.

Partly cloudy to cloudy conditions are likely to clear up by evening and humidity levels will settle around 90%. Light winds of about 5 to 6 kmph will continue to blow over the region. Again, possibility of rain in the evening cannot be ruled out at Melbourne tomorrow.

Team India have never looked more confident on this tour. A complimentary but crucial win in the last ODI provided some much needed impetus to the visitors. Coming into the first T20I, Dhoni’s men had faced everything from disheartening collapses to fierce criticism. But the tides did turn completely at Adelaide as a combination of skill, experience, and young blood helped India thrash Australia in the opening T20 match. Dhoni is likely to continue with the Playing XI which gave him a 1-0 lead in the series.

Australia, on the other hand, have now lost two games in a row for the first time on this tour. They did not look like 'champions' during the Adelaide T20I and were handed a humiliating defeat. Australia even failed to play their quota of 20 overs in the first T20I. While India cruised closer to 200 while batting, Australia were bundled out rather easily.

As per reports, David Warner and Steve Smith won’t be playing the Melbourne T20I. Glenn Maxwell is likely to make a return and another run feast is on the cards.
