5th ODI: Rohit Sharma's Bizarre Stumping Off Adam Zampa During Delhi Decider Has Become a Viral Twitter Meme

Seldom in their cricketing history Australia have walked in to a series as the underdogs, but they walk out with the heads held high, inflicting a series defeat on the World No.2 side in their final ODI series before the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.

Leg-spinner Adam Zampa claimed three wickets while pacemen Pat Cummins, Jhye Richardson and Marcus Stoinis took two each to set up Australia's first win in a five-match ODI series after being 0-2 down. Team India will be under pressure to win the series at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in the capital, particularly after the loss they faced in the fourth ODI despite scoring over 350.

Having removed top-scorer Rohit Sharma (56) at the start of the 29th over, Zampa had Ravindra Jadeja stumped three balls later to leave India in deep trouble at 132-6.

The left-handed Khawaja first raised a 76-run stand with Aaron Finch (27) after his skipper elected to bat in hazy and overcast conditions and followed it up with a 99-run partnership with Peter Handscomb (52).

Jadeja returned to get the unsafe Glenn Maxwell for one and Handscomb was caught behind off Shami as Australia slipped to 182-4.

Some late hitting from Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who struck 46 from 54 balls, could not get India over the line.

India lost Shikhar Dhawan early in their chase.

Swashbuckling Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma on Wednesday added another feather to his already illustrious cap, equalling former cricketer Sourav Ganguly's record of being the third fastest cricketer to reach 8000 runs in ODI cricket. Overall, he hit 10 fours and two sixes as India's changed bowling attack failed to impress. Handscomb was up and running with two consecutive sweeps for fours off Kuldeep.

Khawaja was yet again impressive with his footwork, handling the Indian spinners nicely before being caught at shot extra cover by Kohli off Bhuvneshwar.

Then Jadeja got rid of Glenn Maxwell (1) and Mohammed Shami dismissed Handscomb. However, Richardson took 19 runs off Jasprit Bumrah's ninth over and got together for a crucial stand 34 runs for the eighth wicket, helping Australia to a good total, which eventually proved enough.

The Indian cricketers though looked in light spirits at the party hosted by Shami who did not play in Mohali as the team management wanted to give him a rest and reduce some workload on him.
