Team India's opener Rohit Sharma lit up the show for the hosts at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday as the Hitman smashed his 29th ODI century. The fiery opener scored his eighth ODI ton against Australia, 100 off 110 balls and laced with eight boundaries and five sixes. Chasing a target of 287, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul provided the team with a good start following which skipper Virat Kohli took KL Rahul's place and continued to put pressure on Australia.
