22:54 (IST)

There were two completely different sides playing in this series. India, playing to experiment and test the bench. Australia, playing to come back to the winning ways. While the visitors' aim has been achieved by this thumping 2-0 victory, one wonders if Virat Kohli and the Indian management are sorted in their heads about their World Cup plans now. 

There are still five ODI matches to go before the World Cup, the first match beginning on 2 March. It will give India the last chance to fix the loopholes and ascertain the World Cup squad. 

We will catch you at the start of the first ODI between India and Australia on 2 March. Do follow Firstpost.com for latest news from the world of sports, LIVE scores, analysis of matches and much more till then. For now, take care and bye-bye.

Aaron Finch, Australia captain: I think winning against India is a special moment. Great innings by Maxwell. Zampa was a huge difference. We have been on a journey for the last 11 months, building a team for the World Cup.  

22:48 (IST)

Maxwell: Feels really good. We haven't had a lot of success here of late.To come over here and perform like we have has started it off well for us on this tour. It helps playing bulk of T20 cricket back home. Having confidence in my game also has helped a lot and it feels great to contribute to two special wins. It was pretty good wicket, we could afford to wait for the loose balls. We knew it was going to be little bit easier against the quicks. Especially after D'Arcy's dismissal it was upto me to stick around and drive the innings forward. Handscomb did a great job in giving me the strike all the time. We had a lot of chaos in the last game after the run out, but we corrected that tonight. We were able to keep the run rate in check.

22:43 (IST)

Glenn Maxwell named the Player of the Match and the Player of the Series (113* in 2nd T20I, 56 in 1st T20I)

22:41 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: Australia outplayed us in the two games. They deserved to win after the kind of innings Maxi played tonight. You never take any series lightly but we are not bothered by loss in some matches. But you always try and win every series. We wanted to give everyone a game time. We want to try a few things again. I will not analyse anyone in the two games. Good thing was that Bangalore wicket was back to normal. My knock does not really matter now because we lost the match.

Could this series win be a change of winds for Australia?

India vs Australia 2019, 2nd T20I Latest Match Updates: AUSTRALIA WIN BY SEVEN WICKETS AND CLINCH SERIES 2-0

Preview, 2nd T20I: The focus remains firmly on the World Cup but India would also be desperate to ensure that a home series does not slip out of their grip when they take on Australia in the second and final T20 International here on Wednesday.

India are 0-1 down after an inexplicably poor batting performance led to a three-wicket loss in the lung-opener in Visakhapatnam.

The below-par 126 with the bat on Sunday denied bowlers a decent shot at securing a win even though the Jasprit Bumrah-led attack did all it could to keep the home team in the game till the final over of the match.

India skipper Virat Kohli has already said that his squad composition for the World Cup in May-July is "more or less sorted" but has not ruled out rewarding standout performances over the course of two T20s and five ODIs.

Considering the captain's current frame of mind, both K L Rahul and Rishabh Pant are likely to feature in most of the games against Australia.

India rested opener Shikhar Dhawan to give game time to Rahul, who grabbed the opportunity with both hands by smashing 50 off 36 balls in his comeback game.

He had a disastrous Test tour of Australia before he and Hardik Pandya were provisionally suspended for their loose talk on women during a TV show.

The ban was later revoked though they still face an inquiry.

With the series on the line, it remains to be seen if Dhawan is brought back into the side to open alongside Rohit Sharma or the team retains the opening combination which featured in Vizag.

"Anything is possible now. We want to give game time to Rahul and Pant to figure out what we need to do in the World Cup," Kohli said after the first T20.

While Bumrah showed his class after coming back from a break, the other pacer in Umesh Yadav leaked runs and was not able to defend 14 in the final over.

India could replace Umesh with Siddarth Kaul or bring in all-rounder Vijay Shankar to beef-up the batting department.

The hosts played with a long tail in Vizag and that impacted their final total following an inexplicable batting collapse from 69 for one in the ninth over.

Pant, a strong contender for a World Cup berth, will be itching to perform after getting out cheaply on Sunday, and so will be Dinesh Karthik, who is left with just one game to make a compelling contribution before the World Cup.

All eyes will once again also be on Mahendra Singh Dhoni the batsman who struggled to an unbeaten 29 off 37 balls as India managed 126 for seven in Vizag.

He was able to silence his critics with a solid showing in Australia and New Zealand but his rather slow innings on Sunday has got the tongues wagging again over his waning finishing abilities.

Debutant leg-spinner Mayank Markande (0/31 in four overs) did not pick up a wicket but bowled well according to Kohli. The 21-year-old might get another game.

Australia, on the other hand, will be fancying a rare series win against India in recent times, especially after losing the Test and ODI series at home to Kohli's team.

They would be happy with their bowling on a slow surface in the first game but made a mess of the 127-run target after cruising at one stage.

Australia somehow got over the line but they know that India won't be serving the series win on a platter and will come hard at them at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Captain Aaron Finch would love to be back among the runs and the team will be expecting another blinder from Glenn Maxwell, who hit 56 off 43 deliveries in Vizag.

Squads:

India: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, K.L. Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, M.S. Dhoni (wk), Krunal Pandya, Vijay Shankar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Sidharth Kaul, Mayank Markande.

Australia: Aaron Finch (c), D'Arcy Short, Pat Cummins, Alex Carey, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Peter Handscomb, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Turner, Adam Zampa.
