2nd T20I (N), India tour of Australia 2018, Watch IND v AUS Cricket highlights today – Second twenty/20 from Melbourne Cricket Ground (Australia) Friday 23rd November 2018. Friday in Melbourne is expected to be cloudy with showers on and off. Don’t rule out another shortened match. The drop-in pitch is usually slightly slow with spongy bounce. Australia shouldn’t have any reasons to change the combination that delivered them with a rare win. India should make the bold decision of playing three spinners. Dropping Krunal after an off-night will diminish their batting. With the MCG’s big boundaries, India should have the confidence of playing Chahal over Khaleel Ahmed. KL Rahul should continue now that he has been shown faith in.
