India vs Australia 1st ODI Sydney: Continuing his good form in white ball cricket, Rohit Sharma has again delivered the goods as slammed his 22nd ODI century during the first match against Australia at Sydney Cricket Ground. Rohit competed his hundred off 110 balls that included, seven fours and four sixes It seems baby girl ‘Samaira’ has brought daddy Rohit luck as he also matches to Sourav Ganguly’s record of smashing 22 ODI centuries.
While chasing the target of 289 runs, India was reeling at four for three when Dhoni joined Rohit and stitched a partnership of 137 runs but Dhoni found himself unlucky as he was leg before wicket for 51 off 96 balls. Debutant Jason Behrenhdorff got the prized scalp as Dhoni looked to work the ball towards the leg side. Dhoni’s was pinned leg before and India didn’t have any reviews any left. It certainly looked like it pitched well outside the leg peg. It was a huge blow for the visitors. It was full and at the stumps and Dhoni missed the flick.
