Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are the two biggest pillars of Indian cricket currently. There is not any better sight in world cricket when these two bats together. However, Indian fans love to see them together celebrating victories even more. On Sunday, India celebrated another bilateral series victory as Men in Blue defeated the world champions Australia to win the series 2-1.
On Sunday, India and Australia locked horns in the 3rd and the final T20 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. India skipper Rohit Sharma invited the visitors to bat first after winning the crucial toss. The skipper Aaron Finch alongside Cameron Green came out all guns blazing and attacked the Indian bowlers from the very first delivery.
Cameron Green smashed a fifty off just 19 deliveries to provide the Kangaroos with an explosive start. However, India roared back into the game with disciplined bowling in the middle. Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal choked the Aussie in middle with their spin web. However, Tim David and Daniel Sams provided the visitors with a massive finish to take their team to a winning total of 186/7 runs.
Chasing the total, India had a tough start as Men in Blue lost their openers early. However, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav stitched a vital partnership to bring the hosts back in the game. While Kohli scored 63 runs off 48 deliveries, SKY smashed 69 runs off 36 deliveries before getting out. Meanwhile, the game got closer in the final moments as Dinesh Karthik joined Hardik Pandya in the final over.
