India lost the second Twenty20 International of the series by six wickets following a thrilling nine-wicket triumph over Australia in the first T20I of the series. With a 1-1 series standing, both teams will be looking to win their rematch on January 9 at DY Patil Patel Academy in Navi Mumbai.
Once again, Ellyse Perry was unstoppable at the plate, and Phoebe Litchfield gave her excellent support to help win the second game. India, however, had trouble using the bat. Even though Deepti Sharma and Richa Ghosh played well in the second Twenty20 International, skipper Harmanpreet Kaur is going through a difficult time, which is cause for concern.Titas Sadhu and Renuka Singh Thakur got off to a strong start with the ball but were unable to secure wickets.
