It was a hard pill to swallow for Team India, which was humiliated by six wickets by Australia in the opening Twenty20 International (T20I) at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Tuesday. However, the hosts would now be determined to bounce back and prove why they are the number one T20I side, as the two teams collide in the second game at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur on Friday. The Men in Blue are in a do-or-die situation and would leave no stones unturned to square the series and set up the decider for Sunday. On the same note, we present the best fantasy XI picks, predictions, where to watch and other match details.

Probable XI
KL Rahul (vc & wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel/Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah.
AUS: Aaron Finch (c), Cameron Green, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis (wk), Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Nathan Ellis, Adam Zampa and Josh Hazlewood.


Fantasy XI
Batters: Smith, Finch, Yadav and Rahul

Finch and Rahul would flourish as openers, with Smith dominating at number three, while Yadav has been sensational anywhere in the middle, going after the bowlers.

Wicketkeeper: Wade
He has been doing well as a finisher and would be an ideal fit over all keepers in the middle.

All-rounders: Axar, Pandya (c) and Green (vc)
While Axar has been dominant with his impactful leg-spins, Pandya and Green are no-brainers for their finishing and opening abilities, respectively.

Bowlers: Umesh, Hazlewood and Ellis
Although Umesh was expensive in the last game, he did give the breakthroughs, while Hazlewood and Ellis troubled the batters with their sheer pace and wicket-taking abilities, making them must-haves.
