Kane Richardson came to bowl in the 13th over of the game and it was in the second ball of his over Rohit punished a delivered which was bowled at a good length. The opener came out of his crease and slapped the ball to the boundary BCCI released the footage to make the fans have a look at the shot, which they termed as the 'Tennis shot'.
Rohit Sharma's innings came to an end in the 3rd ball of the 15th over when he was dismissed by Australia leg spinner Adam Zampa LBW. Things got worse for India after Sharma took the DRS check, which upheld Zampa’s dismissal. As a result, India lost its only review.
