During the ongoing Super 8 match in the T20 World Cup 2024 between India and Australia, India skipper Rohit Sharma played a captain's knock and led the team from the front. 

The dynamic India opener narrowly missed out on a century, falling eight runs short after registering a quickfire 41-ball 92, striking at an impressive rate of 224.39. 

After star batter Virat Kohli once again faltered, departing on a five-ball duck, it was the Hitman himself who took on the onus of the scoring.

Rohit didn't let Australia capitalise on the momentum and slammed Mitchell Starc for a staggering 28 runs comprising four maximums and a boundary on the very next over after Kohli's dismissal. 

Following his knock, the netizens heaped plaudits on Rohit claiming that the skipper had taken revenge for the 2023 ODI World Cup Final loss against the Aussies.

Rohit's Sharma's fireworks set the foundation for a big total

The Aussies made a strong start by removing Kohli but Rohit shut them down almost immediately with his power-hitting. Rohit's knock made amends for the early setback and set the foundation for a big score.

However, the Aussies have managed to make inroads in regular intervals as the Men in Blue has lost 4 wickets so far. 

Apart from Rohit's fireworks, Suryakumar Yadav too contributed with a fiery cameo of 16-ball 31. 

Speaking about the match, the India scoreboard currently read 171 for 4 in 17 overs with Shivam Dube and Hardik Pandya at the crease.  

India are currently unbeaten in the tournament and are in the box seat to qualify for the semis. However, a win today will guarantee their qualification and will extend their unblemished run further.
