Bangalore: Dec 28, 2012
MS Dhoni & Co. will look for a victory against Pakistan to level the two-match T20 series when the two teams play at Ahmedabad on Friday.
Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik inspired Pakistan to a victory in the first T20 which turned out to be a low-scoring thriller. Seven-foot tall pacer Mohammed Irfan impressed with the ball, picking up crucial wickets. Hafeez will hope his side will continue the good all-round form and take the series 2-0.
On the other hand, Dhoni will expect his men to pick themselves up to beat their old rivals to draw level in the series.
India: Gautam Gambhir, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ashok Dinda, Ishant Sharma
