Mumbai: Skipper Rohit Sharma put on quite a show in the T20 World Cup Super 8 match against Australia, allowing Team India to post a formidable 202/5 in St Lucia on Monday.

Rohit, who has still not forgotten India’s defeat at the hands of Australia in the ODI World Cup final 7 months ago, was like a man on a mission.

After Virat Kohli fell for a duck in the second over, it rained sixes and fours at the Darren Sammy Stadium as Rohit attacked leg-spinner Adam Zampa, medium-pacer Marcus Stoinis and took apart Mitchell Starc with 29 runs in one over.

Rohit raced to 50 off 19 balls in a team total of 52! And when he finally got out for 92 (41 balls, 7×4, 8×6), India had reached 127/3 in the 12th over.

Suryakumar Yadav (31 off 16), Shivam Dube (28 off 22) and Hardik Pandya (27* off 17) didn’t find strokemaking that simple but managed to push India past 200.

Australia need to win to keep alive their semifinal hopes.
