A splendid ton💯 from Rohit Sharma(171*) and a 91 from Virat Kohli👏 has helped 🇮🇳 post a challenging total of 309-3 for Australia to chase. The two of them got together after Dhawan fell early to join hands in a mammoth 207 run😳 partnership which is now the highest 2nd wicket partnership for IND vs AUS, eclipsing the 199 runs partnership set by Sachin and VVS👌. It was ended when a well timed Kohli hit was caught well👏 by Finch at long on. Rohit was in an extremely punitive mood😠, dishing out 13 fours and 7 sixes🙌 before MS Dhoni(18) played a short cameo✌ to ensure the innings ended on a high. ICC's decision to allow 5⃣ fielders outside the circle in the final 🔟 overs clearly had an effect on the total not going well beyond 300. Rohit has 3⃣ ODI 💯's in Australia now, matched only by VVS Laxman, and has also become the quickest batsman ever to get to 1000 ODI runs in AUS💪.
