The Great Indian Run Chase...!

What a fantastic chase that was…! Second highest successful run chase in the history of ODI cricket and that’s the best run chase ever by India.


  • ·       Australian batsmen were on rampage as they hammered the Indian bowlers for the second successive time in this series.

  • ·       The Indian bowlers looked clueless as each one of the top 5 batsmen scored a half century which is a record.

  • ·       Eventually, India were left to chase a daunting target of 360, thanks to some hard hitting by Maxwell and Bailey.

  • ·       In reply, the openers Dhawan and Rohit started off steadily scoring about 6 an over.

  • ·       Dhawan had two lucky escapes and after that he began to explode. The short pitch delieveries were smashed with ease by Dhawan. Every bowler was greeted with a boundary.

  • ·       Finally, Faulkner broke the partnership at 172, getting rid of Dhawan on 95 off just 86 balls .

  • ·       Then came the young sensation Virat Kohli.

  • ·       The man who brought the attention of the world with his aggression (8 fours and 7 sixes).

  • ·       Virat scored 100 off just 52 balls which is the fastest ton ever by an Indian.

  • ·       Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma finally lived up to his promise and proved that he is capable of holding the innings together with his master class 141.

  • ·       His highest score ever, which won him the man of the match.

  • ·       India winning the match by 9 wickets with a whooping 39 balls to spare and proved why they are the world champions.

  • ·       The 7 match series is now leveled at 1-1.

RIP! Rohit Sharma's trolls.
I believe he is one of the very few,who performs well in all three formats of the game. Hope, he does well in the forthcoming test series against RSA.
