Australia all-rounder Moises Henriques, who made a significant contribution in Australia’s 8-wicket victory in the second Twenty-20 international at Barsapara Cricket Stadium Guwahati, has expressed his gladness over the awe-inspiring vibes created by the people of Assam. Even though, the Australian cricket team bus was attacked by some dim-witted locals but Henriques felt that the response was good by and large.
Taking to his official Twitter account “@Mozzie21”, the 30-year-old wrote: “Whilst the bus home last night wasn’t ideal, the support from fans & children across Assam today in response was kind. Cheers 2 good vibes✌🏼”

Put into bat by Aussie stand-in-skipper David Warner, India were bundled out for a paltry 118 in 20 overs on a deck where there was some assistance for the fast bowlers. Making the most of lively Guwahati deck, Aussie pacer Jason Behrendorff dented the Indian top order with the figures of (4-0-21-4). He got rid of both the openers Rohit Sharma (8) and Shikhar Dhawan (2) beside scalping India skipper Virat Kohli (0) and young Manish Pandey (6).
Chasing the target, Australia suffered a couple of early hiccups as the opening duo of Warner and Finch got out when the score was just 13. However, promoted at a crucial number 3 position, Henriques proved his worth with an unbeaten 62 off 42 balls, which included 4 fours and as many sixes. The right-hander put on 109-run stand for the third wicket with Travis Head (48* off 34 balls) as the visitors sealed the deal with 27 balls to spare.
