MELBOURNE: Prick by a narrow loss in the opening encounter, India will like to review their playing combination while aiming for a instant turn-around when they take on Australia in the second T20 in Melbourne on Friday.

Aussies took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series, which comprise three back-to-back matches in a short span of five days.

Having won seven consecutive T20 series, Kohli and his team will certainly want to make it eight in a row and for that they may be forced to edit both their batting and bowling combinations.

The Indian batting line-up could see some shuffle in light of KL Rahul's inconsistent form.

Rahul hasn't crossed the 30-run mark in n
last six matches.

The team management has persisted with him at number three, benched Manish Pandey and the skipper demoting himself to number four.

The team management could also be tempted to have a re-look at the bowling attack.

Krunal Pandya bowling is very expensive in the latest matches.

Kohli might bring in leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who has a brilliant wicket-taking record in T20s.

Leaving Pandya out would make their batting order weak and Kohli might not be keen on taking that decision.

Australia boasts of bigger grounds than in India, with bigger boundaries of course, and the MCG will prove to be another giant challenge in that regard.

Therefore, India will also look at other areas where improvements can be made.

The trick to introduce Adam Zampa as the lone spinner worked amazingly for Australia and with their intense fielding effort, Australia were able to make a winning clash.
