Over 16 Australia 122/2/No

That brings us to the close of a one-sided affair. Australia, for a change, came out with flying colours. This is a morale-boosting win for them which will definitely uplift their spirits. On the other hand, India were outplayed in all the departments tonight. They will aim to learn from their mistakes and get back in their elements. Expect them to come back hard in the decider! Join us for the final T20I in Hyderabad on 13th October at 1900 local (1330 GMT). Till then, goodbye and cheers!
Jason Behrendorff, the Man of the Match, is elated as it is rare that he comes in front of the cameras! Feels that even though he didn't bowl much in the last game, the experience helped. Says he's working hard to play for Australia and he is happy to put in the efforts. He is happy to pick up few wickets against India. Ends saying he can't wait to get on the field in the next game at Hyderabad.
David Warner, the Australian captain, says that it feels great to win. Credits his bowlers, especially Behrendorff for taking four wickets. Adds that he extracts good bounce from the surface and is an exciting prospect. Mentions that he has used Henriques at No. 3 in the Indian T20 League and his experience came to the fore tonight. Feels that it was an English type of wicket at the start. Appreciates his batsmen for tackling the Indian bowlers well. Ends by saying that he expects a lot of support in Hyderabad for the last game.
Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, feels that it wasn't a performance that they wished for. Feels that they weren't good enough with the bat as the wicket was a bit sticky and also dew played a part when they were fielding. He wasn't satisfied with the runs that they had to play with. States that their effort is to win games, but when down, they need to give 120% in the field as he opines that attitude is very important. Credits Behrendorff for bowling in good areas. Opines that he bowled tight lines and didn't give anything away.
India would be ruing their lost chances with the bat though. Their batsman failed to fire collectively. While all talks roamed about the tourists' batting collapses, it was the hosts' batting that slid today. Behrendorff was the wrecker-in-chief and the home side couldn't come back from the early jolt that the left-arm pacer handed them. A good all-round effort has seen the visitors level the series. Stay with us to listen to what the captains have to say.
Henriques and Head had different ideas though. They first took their time to have a good feel of the conditions and once they felt they were in, the shots started coming off their bats. That they had a pretty paltry score to chase helped the duo set in. What helped them is Chahal and Yadav having off days with the ball, courtesy a wet outfield on account of the dew.
Australia change the script finally! It was the pair that had good 'head' on their shoulders, pun intended, that saw the Aussies home! That ends India's 7-game unbeaten streak against these opponents. The picture wasn't rosy when the visitors began their chase. They lost Warner and Finch early to shots that could have done without. Yet another batting collapse was on the way it seemed.
15.3
Y Chahal to M Henriques, FOUR! This is the apt manner to finish it off! Tossed up delivery in line of the stumps, Henriques drills it past Chahal and once that happens, it's destined to reach the fence. Thumping victory for the away side. The joy on the face of Moises is evident! AUSTRALIA WIN BY 8 WICKETS WITH 27 BALLS TO SPARE, LEVEL THE SERIES 1-1!

14.2
K Yadav to M Henriques, SIX! Just over the man at long off! Tossed up around off, Henriques clears his front leg and smokes it towards long off. Rohit is interested but can only see it sailing over his head.
14.1
K Yadav to T Head, Close shave! Tossed up around off, Head uses his feet but is not quite to the pitch of it. Looks to drive it but gets it off the outer half to short third man. A run taken. This is Head's highest T20I score.
