30-year-old Australian National Cricket Team leg spinner Adam Zampa cleared former India National Cricket Team captain Virat Kohli in the second match of the T20I series of three matches at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur on Friday, 23 Sept.
Virat Kohli, who headed into the Australian T20I series with great form in his bag after a stellar run in the 2022 Asia Cup, was only able to score 2 runs in the first T20I at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali, Chandigarh on Tuesday, Sept 20.

In the second T20I, the batter failed again as he was able to score only 11 runs off 6 balls, including 2 boundaries, before being fired by Zampa in the 5th over of the innings.
On the second ball of the over, the Australian leg spinner threw a faster ball and Kohli took to the court to play the flick shot. However, the ball slipped through the fence and landed in the top of the leg stump. Notably, the former India captain played the shot for an inning, but the ball went straight. This was the 8th time Zampa took Kohli’s wicket in white ball cricket and the 3rd time in T20I cricket.
Australia, India each make two changes to the playing XI for the second T20I
The second T20I game of the series was heavily delayed due to a wet outfield. India National Cricket Team won the toss and chose to bowl first. The Men In Blue made two changes to the playing XI when Jasprit Bumrah replaced Umesh Yadav and Rishabh Pant replaced Bhuvneshwar Kumar. On the other hand, Australia also made two changes as Daniel Sams replaced the injured Nathan Ellis and Sean Abbott replaced Josh Inglis.
Leading the way, Australia put 90 for 5 on the board with the help of sensational batting performances from Matthew Wade and Aaron Finch
