Australia vs India 1st Test Adelaide: Rohit Sharma is excessively talented and at times that backfires for him. But, a glorious six over extra cover by Rohit Sharma of a pacy Pat Cummins delivery seems to be winning the internet. India was reeling and was under the pump when Rohit Sharma went aerial over covers of an over-pitched ball from Cummins. The ball sailed into the stands and the commentators said he hit it as if it was a throwdown at the nets.
Watch Rohit hit the delightful shot:
The shot won hearts on Twitter:
Soon, after that, he was out for 37 runs and it was a shot that he would be kicking himself for. He had just hit a six off Nathan Lyon and tried to repeat it, only to top-edge it and the catch was taken by Marcus Harris. Rohit’s stay was cut short for 36. This has been a problem with Rohit Sharma in the past, hence despite having immense talent, he has not been able to cement his place in the side and his dismissal at Adelaide was a testament of it.
