India vs Australia 1st ODI: India opener Shikhar Dhawan did what he does best to enthrall fans at the Sydney Cricket Ground during the ongoing 1st ODI. Dhawan was spotted doing the bhangra for the fans in the deep mid-wicket boundary. It was an impromptu dance move and the fans were ecstatic on seeing Gabbar do it. This is not the first time Gabbar has impressed fans with his bhangra moves, he had done it last year in England as well. A lot will be expected from Dhawan when India start the chase. He is making a comeback into the team after some time and he will know he needs to get among the runs to cement a spot for himself for the World Cup later this year. India captain Virat Kohli has made it clear that no one can take their place for granted in the side.
Here is the video of Dhawan enthralling fans at SCG:
Earlier, Kohli was spotted dancing while the drinks break was on. India was on top in the first ODI after the hosts won the toss and opted to bat first on what looked like a good batting surface. The hosts were soon reduced to 41 for two. Kohli has been upbeat since the historic Test win against Australia. India has 13 more games before the marquee tournament later this year and these limited overs exposure will help them build towards that in the best possible manner.
At the time of filing the copy, Australia was 202/4 in 43 overs with Stoinis and Handscomb in the middle. The hosts will dearly be hoping for the two take the hosts past 280.
