New Delhi. After losing the first T20 match against Australia in Mohali, Rohit Sharma-led team India would like to make a comeback in the next match on Friday (23 September). The ‘Men in Blue’ reached Nagpur on Wednesday, where the second match of the three-match series is to be played. Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant made a young fan’s day as soon as he reached Nagpur.
The BCCI shared a video on its official Twitter handle, in which members of the Indian team can be seen arriving at the Nagpur airport. People gathered in large numbers at the airport as well as the team hotel to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars. While Virat Kohli shook hands towards the fans present at the airport, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant made his day by autographing a younger fan.
The game in which he won gold at the age of 14… In 24 years, the world champion lost his life in the same practice.
Let us tell you that the second match against Australia is going to be ‘do or die’ for the host team. If Team India will win this match, only then will there be hope of winning the series. If India loses this match, then Australia will take an unassailable lead in the 3-match series.
