After registering a thumping 31-run victory over Australia in the series opener at the Adelaide Oval, a confident India led by Virat Kohli will aim to continue the momentum when they take on the Aussie team in the second match.
The second Test match between India and Australia will be played at the brand new Perth stadium. The Tim Paine-led Oz team will aim to bounce back from their defeat in the first Test on the green and bouncy pitch of the Perth.
The Perth pitch is expected to offer plenty of pace and bounce and that on paper an advantage of the troubling Australian side. Speaking about the pitch, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said, “We get more excited than nervous looking at lively pitches now.”
