In the booming clash of 8-overs play between India and Australia for the 2nd T20I, team India have won the toss and opted to bowl first.

Rohit Sharma and company decided to give rest to Bhuvneshwar Kumar due to the shortage of overs, and calls in death over specialist Jasprit Bumrah.

Rishabh Pant too comes in for an attacking play and it is quite possible to watch Pant opening with Rohit Sharma.

Rohit Sharma: We’re going to field first. It’s nice, there are so many people who have come to watch us. It is nice to get a game. These games are challenging ones because you don’t know what to do. You just have to go out and express yourself. Hopefully we can put up a good show. Since it is an eight over game, we had to make two changes: Bumrah comes in for Umesh Yadav. Bhuvi misses out too and Pant comes in.

India (Playing XI): KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma(c), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant(w), Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal
