India and Australia are currently involved in the three-match T20I series. The two teams faced in three ODIs, the series which the hosts won by 2-1. With India’s tour to Australia, crowds also returned to the stadiums albeit only 50%. Amid COVID-19 scare, the tickets have been sold out and it goes without saying that the Indian fans have outnumbered the Aussies.
The scenes were similar in the second T20I at the Sydney Cricket Ground as the action returned to the venue after two matches played in Canberra. Australia, despite missing some of their top players, batted well after losing the toss. Their stand-in skipper Matthew Wade started off well smashing 58 off just 32 balls opening the innings while the rest of the batsmen also kept going to entertain the crowd.
Even the Indian fans were enjoying given the fact that their team was also making a comeback every now and then picking wickets. However, at the end of 15 overs of Australia innings, cameras were on the audience and that is when the crowd in that section of the stadium started cheering. But a man had his baby in his laps and the poor child couldn’t comprehend with all the noise around.
It started crying even as the crowd kept on cheering for its favourite team. The video of the same was shared by cricket.com.au hilariously stating that cricket is not everyone’s cup of tea.
Here’s the video:

Australia struggling with a spate of injuries
Even as Australia batted well, they missed some of their talismanic players in the second T20I against India. Mitchell Starc pulled himself back out of the T20I series ahead of the crucial game for personal reasons even as there were reports that he wasn’t sure of his back as well. The regular skipper Aaron Finch also got ruled out of the game due to a hip injury along with Josh Hazlewood who also sustained some sort of an injury.
During the ODI series, David Warner got injured and he is still doubtful for the first Test of the four-match series. Pat Cummins was also rested from the rest of the white-ball matches to manage his workload and since then, Australia are constantly suffering from injuries.
