Australia would be a happier unit after the last match. They didn’t do well in the first T20I at Adelaide but made up for it with a brilliant bowling performance on Friday. Cameron Boyce, Pat Cummins and James Faulkner were accurate with the ball. They bowled economically but at the same time kept picking up wickets. Cummins gave away only 11 runs from his four overs and picked up one wicket while Boyce conceded 15 runs and got two wickets. It was one the most clinical bowling displays by Australia in a T20I. Australian captain Aaron Finch, who couldn’t really perform well with the bat last time ,scored 44 runs off only 30 balls, which included eight boundaries. Glenn Maxwell, who was included in the T20I side after the defeat in the first game, failed to shine with the bat as he was dismissed for nought. home-side.
