Jason Behrendorff marked his second Twenty20 global with four wickets as Australia recorded a comfortable eight-wicket win over India to level the three-match series at 1-1.

A rock was thrown at the Australian team bus as they returned from the Barsapara Stadium to the team hotel in Guwahati, after comprehensively beating India in their second Twenty20 on Tuesday, Indian Express reported.

After Australia captain David Warner and elected to bowl first, left-arm seamer Behrendorff, who playing only in his second global, got rid of India's risky top four batsmen including skipper Virat Kohli for a duck to leave the hosts in trouble at 27/4. India routed Australia by nine wickets in the rain-hit opening match on Saturday at Ranchi to take a 1-0 lead. India are playing with an unchanged squad.

Kohli has scored 1852 runs at an average of 54.47 while he was not out for 13 times in 47 innings of 51 matches in global T20.

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.

Before the second T-20 global match, on Monday, David Warner led Australian team had net practised at Barshapara Cricket Stadium.

Chasing 119, Australia suffered two early blows in the form of captain David Warner (2) and Aaron Finch (8), who were back in the hut at 13/2 by the third over.

Kedar Jadhav (27) was the highest scorer for India, with allrounder Hardik Pandya's 25 helping the hosts get into triple figures. They are ranked one in the other two formats and Virat Kohli has already signalled his intention of achieving a better position in the unpredictable format as well. We would have bowled first as well.

West Australian paceman Jason Behrendorff says a Test debut is his ultimate motivation after a stunning man-of-the-match performance in his second global match for Australia.

Manish Pandey (6) slashed an outside edge to Tim Paine before a stunning catch from the backpedalling stand-in captain David Warner secured Behrendorff's fourth wicket of the match.
