Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, played flawlessly on Friday. The captain excelled at every task, from inserting Axar Patel into the Powerplay to leading his team’s pursuit. India overcame Australia by six wickets at the VCA stadium thanks in large part to Sharma, who showed off a variety of shots while creaming the Australian attack and carrying his bat.

India needed just 10 runs from the last over when Rohit (46 not out) struck a superb square-cut after losing Hardik Pandya in the penultimate over from Pat Cummins. Dinesh Karthik once more showcased his finishing move by tying the series with a six and a four.

In an 8-over encounter that was cut short, India amassed 94 for 4 while attempting to reach a 91-run mark.

In his element, Rohit gave India the stability it sorely needed heading into the World Cup. To keep India on course, he pulled a six in front of square, another one beyond it, and expertly chopped Daniel Sams.

With the skipper going all out, India launched their chase with three sixes in the first over. However, the loss of three significant wickets in the fifth over—KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav—in a span of 10 balls—kept the match close.
