India took on Australia in the third and final ODI on Wednesday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Australia managed to score 269 before they were bowled out. Mitchell Marsh top-scored for the visitors with his 47. Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav took three wickets each with Mohammed Siraj and Axar Patel scalping four wickets together.
When India came on to bat, the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill wreaked havoc on the Australian bowlers, scoring 65 runs in just 9 overs. However, Sharma lost his wicket when he was batting at 30 while Gill was dismissed at the score of 37. Nevertheless, the two batters played some eye-catching shots during their short stay at the crease.
Gill looked in great rhythm as he took on his nemesis in this series, Mitchell Starc. The right-handed batter took Starc to the cleaners as he hit three boundaries and a six against the left-arm pacer. The only six Gill hit during his inning came off an audacious flick shot. As Starc tried to bowl an inswinger against Gill, he ended up dishing out a half-volley. Gill, meanwhile, made full use of the opportunity as he played a nonchalant flick shot for a maximum.

The fashion in which the bat came down and the follow-through after that reminded people of Yuvraj Singh. The only difference was Gill batting right-handed.
