Australia skipper David Warner on Tuesday compared the new Barsapara Stadium here to the English cricket grounds where the new ball did the trick for the tourists in their eight-wicket win in the second Twenty20 worldwide.

Kohli was out for 0 runs in the second match of the 3-match T20I series against Australia at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli will head towards scripting a history in T20 cricket with his bat against Australia in the second T20 match to be played against Australia in Guwahati on 10 October. India's victory in the 1st T20I of this series in Ranchi was their 50th ever win in this format; only Afghanistan have a better win rate (64%) than India (61%).

Behrendorff's 4-21 off four overs was the catalyst for India's total of 118, which was easily hunted down by Australia with 27 balls to spare.

Australia's 9-wicket loss against India in the first match of the series was barely an ideal debut for the man from New South Wales. Kohli took the catch again as India sniffed a possible win.

Chasing a low 119-run target, the Australian run chase got off to a woeful start as they lost both their openers inside three overs.

Hardik Pandya hit a 23-ball 25 to take India across the 100-run mark, which had seemed tough at 70-7, but the batsman's dismissal saw the innings fold on the last ball. It was followed by a record-breaking delivery to Virat Kohli getting him out for a duck for the first time in T20Is.

Behrendorff then had Manish Pandey caught behind with one that swung away just enough before Dhawan fell to a spectacular running catch by opposition captain David Warner.

Behrendorff was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets, while Zampa snapped up two, and Stoinis, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Andrew Tye chipped in with one wicket apiece. Unraveling the mystery of India's wrist spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal - who have shared 16 wickets between them in six matches - will go a long way in boosting Australia's chances.
