Indian skipper Rohit Sharma was caught bromancing veteran wicketkeeper batter Dinesh Karthik, before Men in Blue sealed the three-match T20I series with an emphatic win in the series decider on Sunday evening in Hyderabad.
Team India outplayed world champions in a nail-biting thriller at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium after Axar Patel, Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli put up a great show helping India win the game by 6 wickets.
The candid moment between Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik was evident in the first innings of the game when Axar Patel ran Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell out.
Before Axar's direct throw hit the stumps, veteran wicketkeeper batter Dinesh Karthik unintentionally disturbed one of the bails, but Axar's throw hit the stumps dislodging the other bail when Maxwell was short of the few shorts of the crease.
While Indian skipper Rohit Sharma initially appeared upset but he looked relieved and went on to kiss Dinesh Karthik on his head after the third umpire confirmed Maxwell's dismissal.
Even in the second T20 international, duo shared a beautiful moment when the wicketkeeper batter finished things off in style by smashing a six and a four to level the series with Rohit at the other end.
Speaking of the 3rd T20 international, Australian opener Cameron Green smashed Indian bowlers all around as he added d 52 off just 21 balls. Tim David was another batter who came handy on Sunday evening as the all-rounder scored blitz 54 off 27.
For the Men in Blue, Axar Patel picked three wickets in the game and was rewarded Player of the Series for finishing the bilateral affair as the highest wicket-taker (8).
During run chase, former Indian skipper Virat Kohli played an anchor role while Suryakumar Yadav was once again at his best by scoring runs all around the park.
Suryakumar smashed 69 off 36 deliveries while Kohli's 63 off 48 was another noteworthy performance from the world's number one T20I team. For his brilliant performance in the match, Suryakumar Yadav was bestowed with Player of the Match award.
