2nd ODI India vs Australia Adelaide: Chasing 299 set by Australia, the hosts always knew Rohit Sharma and India skipper Virat Kohli will hold the key in the ongoing 2nd ODI at Adelaide. Once Marcus Stoinis removed Rohit Sharma for 43 off 52 balls to his favourite pull shot, the reaction of the Aussies showed what the wicket meant to them. The hosts in their retro kit looked all-pumped like Hulk. Rohit has been in ominous form in white ball cricket, he hit a 133 off 129 balls at SCG, a game that India lost and his 22nd ton went in vain.
Here are the reactions of the bowler and the fielder:

The Indian duo becomes the second opening combination and fourth overall to score 4000 runs as a partnership.
Australia scored 93 off the last ten overs as Shaun Marsh hit a brilliant 131 as Maxwell chipped in with a quickfire 48 off 37 balls. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the pick of the bowlers as he scalped four wickets as Shami picked three.
