The Indian opener, Rohit Sharma has found a completely unique way to get dismissed during the series decider against Australia at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi. Chasing 273, India lost Shikhar Dhawan (12) early in the innings, after that, Kohli (20) and Rohit Sharma (56) added 53 runs for the second wicket, but after Virat’s dismissal, they lost wickets in regular intervals and all the hopes were pinned on Rohit.
Rohit was finding his difficult to score runs as easy as he would’ve liked as he scored at a strike-rate of 62. In order to break the shackles with the rising run rate, Sharma attempted to come down the track and smash Adam Zampa out of the ground. He lost his shape, balance and grip on the bat. The bat went flying to short fine-leg as he was out stumped as he was way down the wicket. He was dismissed in the 29th over.
Here is the video of the dismissal:
This would summarize today's #RahulGandhi visit to TN!

During his half-century in Delhi, Sharma became the joined third fastest batsmen to cross the landmark of 8000 ODI runs with Sourav Ganguly as they did it in just 200 innings. The Indian skipper Virat Kohli (185 innings) is the fastest one to do so followed by AB de Villiers (182 innings).

After Rohit and Ravindra Jadeja’s dismissal in the same over, Kedar Jadhav (44) and Bhuvneshwar (46) added 91 runs for the seventh wicket, but it wasn’t to take India over the line as both of them got out on back-to-back deliveries and after that, the game was nothing but over for the Indians as they got bundled out for a 237 and lost the game by 35 runs. For Australia, Pant Cummins was the pick of the bowlers as he finished the game with a tally of 2/38 in his quota of 10 overs.
