Facing short deliveries with extra bounce is always tough to handle for most batters from around the world and when they are bowled on the first ball of the match then they work as a surprising element. A similar sort of situation occurred with the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma as he was bounced out by Obed McCoy on the first delivery of the Indian innings.
