Top 10 funny memes after Rohit Sharma’s explosive knock powers Team India to victory in 2nd T20I

India leveled the three-match series 1-1 with a comfortable six-wicket win in the second T20I against Australia on Friday, September 23, in Nagpur. It was an eight-over-per-side affair due to a wet outfield at the ground.

In a truncated contest, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and asked the Australians to bat first. Visiting captain Aaron Finch (31* off 15 balls) kicked things off with a couple of boundaries in the first over to set an aggressive tone for his side early in the innings.

Axar Patel (2/13) momentarily put breaks in the scoring rate by sending dangerous hitters Cameron Green and Glenn Maxwell to the pavilion in his successive overs. However, Finch kept attacking at the other end and scored runs at a brisk pace to help his side motor along. Matthew Wade (43*) played a blazing cameo in the end to power Australia to 90/5.

Rohit got India off to a flier in the chase by smacking two sixes in the first over against Josh Hazlewood. The hosts raced off to 39 in 2.4 overs before KL Rahul perished, looking for a big hit against Adam Zampa (3/16).

The leg-spinner bowled a phenomenal spell and tried his best to bring his team back into the contest by scalping three crucial middle-order wickets. Rohit (46* off 20 balls) foiled his efforts by playing a blinder while holding up one end till the end of the chase.

He looked in sublime touch and kept the required run rate under check with his timely boundaries. Dinesh Karthik provided an explosive finish by smashing a six and a four in the last over to end the chase with four balls remaining in the innings.
