After losing in the first T20I of the three-match series against Australia on Tuesday, India had a disappointing night.Despite putting up a spectacular showing with the bat and aiming for 209, Australia chased down the huge target with four wickets and four balls in hand.In the second T20I, which will be played in Nagpur on Friday, Team India will be looking to improve their bowling, particularly the pace attack, since the pacers conceded 150 runs in 12 overs in the previous match.The absence of pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who was supposed to make his comeback in the game, shocked the fans.KL Rahul: The captain has been good batting practice, and he did a great job with it.Although he just hit 11 runs in the previous round, he has a great chance of achieving big scores.Virat Kohli: The star batter failed in the final round and only managed 2 runs.Despite this, Virat is one of the most lethal batters in the T20I team, as he smashed 46 runs off 25 balls. It will be interesting to see if he will be included in the Playing XI for the 2nd T20I or not.Hardik Pandya: With his knock of 71 runs off 30 balls, the all-rounder radically changed the game's tone.However, he was unable to impress with the ball as he gave up 22 runs in 2 overs.In the 2nd T20I, Hardik will focus on his bowling, and Ravichandran Ashwin was chosen over him, and he completely justified his choice.Axar Patel: Axar bowled a fantastic 317 in 4.0 overs when the rest of the bowling attack was leaking runs, but there are chances that he will replace the ineffective Yuzvendra Chahal in the 2nd T20I. But he needs more opportunities in the run-up to the World Cup, as Bumrah was a rare prospect in his first over at Mohali, where he only conceded 52 runs in his four-over spell and went wicketless in the 1st T20I.Umesh Yadav: Umesh Yadav was expensive in his first over at Mohali, but he came back strong to pick two wickets.
