Indian skipper Rohit Sharma and star batter Virat Kohli were elated with Team India’s 6-wicket win over Australia in Hyderabad. The duo were seen hugging and celebrating together.
India thumps Australia by 6 wickets to seal the series 2-1
It was a sensational performance by Team India as they thumped Australia by 6 wickets to bag the series by the margin of 2-1. Opting to bowl, India had a decent outing with the ball as they kept taking wickets at regular intervals.
But the fifties from Cameron Green, Tim David and a quick-fire cameo from Daniel Sams in the end helped Australia post a good total of 186 runs on the board. Chasing the target, India lost KL Rahul and skipper Rohit Sharma early and were under pressure.
But sensational knocks by Suryakumar Yadav (69) and Virat Kohli (63) ensured Team India end the series on a high and win the match. It was during the last over when the game got tensed but Hardik Pandya held his nerves and smashed unbeaten 25 runs to win the game for his side.
As Pandya hit the four on the last ball, Rohit and Kohli, who were sitting on the stairs, were jubilant and hugged each other animatedly. Their moment caught the attention of many and it went viral on the internet.

“Biggest positive was different individuals stepping up and delivering. You feel good about it as a management. Margin of error in T20s is small. We took our chances, we were brave as well. Sometime it doesn’t come off. There are areas to improve as well.”
India will be next seen in action when they will lock horns against South Africa in the three-match T20I series, starting 27th September.
