India and Australia faced each other for the decider of the 3-match T20I series at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. The Rohit-led side clinched a 6-wicket win and also bagged the series by 2-1.
It was Kohli‘s (63) and Suryakumar Yadav’s (69) heroic innings that helped India to reach the mammoth target of 187 runs. However, what made the highlight was the wild celebration of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli at the staircase of the stadium. The video of Kohli and Rohit pumping each other and laughing hard after the win broke the internet.
To win the game, India needed 11 runs from the last over, with Australia handing the charge to Daniel Sams. Kohli got a six but Sams came back strongly and dismissed Kohli through a catch-out by Finch. However, all-rounder Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik then took India to victory.
Just after the win Kohli and Rohit hugged each other and celebrated the win like never before.
After the match, Rohit talked about this much-awaited series win and said,” Biggest positive was different individuals stepping up and delivering. You feel good about it as a management. The margin of error in T20s is small. We took our chances, we were brave as well. Sometimes it doesn’t come off. There are areas to improve as well. Not easy coming back after a break against a tough team,” Rohit said after the match.
