Skipper Rohit Sharma, determined to bounce back from a lackluster performance in the first T20, engaged in an intense net session, setting the tone for redemption.

Virat Kohli, who arrived in Indore on Saturday afternoon, wasted no time joining the practice, sharing the nets with Rohit Sharma. The dynamic duo's partnership promised fireworks in the upcoming clash, injecting experience and firepower into the Indian batting lineup.

However, the team faced questions about the playing XI, especially with the absence of Yashasvi Jaiswal in the first match due to injury.

All eyes were on Shubman Gill, who showcased his skills in the previous game but faced a mix-up that led to Rohit Sharma's early exit. The possible inclusion of Jaiswal added intrigue to the team dynamics.
