The five-match ODI series between India and Australia have begun yesterday. Aussie captain Aaron Finch won the toss again and decided to bat first. The pitch was a bit difficult for batting.
Nonetheless, the visitors managed to put on a modest score of 236/7 on the board. Indian bowlers in the likes of Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav got two wickets each. The other wicket went to part-time spinner Kedar Jadhav.
During the Indian run chase, there was an initial hiccup as India lost Shikhar Dhawan in the second over. But the other opener Rohit Sharma played cautiously. Although he scored just 37 runs from 66 balls, that knock included some atrocious shots.
Among those shots, there was an unorthodox scoop off the bowling of Jason Behrendorff. The innovative unorthodox shot resulted in a boundary. The 31-year-old’s shot was so innovative that it even left the best in the business awestruck.
Skipper Virat Kohli, who was at the non-striker’s end, couldn’t stop admiring the shot. He shared a smile with the vice-captain after Rohit played that unorthodox shot. Both Kohli (44) and Rohit shared a 76-runs partnership that stabled India’s innings.
Here is the video of Rohit’s unorthodox shot:

After Rohit and Virat fell, the Aussies once again came back in the game. They even dismissed Rayudu for just 13 runs and left India reeling at 99/4.
But veteran Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav came to the rescue. Jadhav scored 81 not out while Dhoni remained unbeaten on 59. Their 139-run partnership took India over the line with 10 balls to spare.
Previously during the Aussie innings, Aaron Finch’s dismissal left them reduced to 0/1. Marcus Stoinis and Usman Khawaja stabilized the innings. Glenn Maxwell steered the game for some time. Later Alex Carey and Nathan Coulter-Nile provided some fire in the end.
