With a series lead of 2-1, India's decision to bat first in the 4th ODI proved costly to Australia as the openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma regained their form and put up an opening stand of 193 runs.
While Dhawan scored a blistering 143 off 115 deliveries hitting 18 boundaries and three sixes in this endeavour, Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma fell short of his 23rd ODI ton by 5 runs.
But the highlight of the first half of the match unarguably was when tail-ender Jasprit Bumrah came out in the middle on the final ball of Indian innings after pacer Pat Cummins got rid of Yuzvendra Chahal for a duck on the penultimate delivery.
Bumrah, who has never hit a maximum in an ODI match, surprised everyone when he swung hard and sent Cummins smoking towards long on for a gigantic six.
The unexpected shot left Kohli in awe, who rose from his chair to celebrate Bumrah's clean hit.
Here's Kohli's reaction:
Fans on Twitter cheered on Bumrah's heroics, who pushed India's total to a mammoth 358/9.

Bumrah hitting Cummins for a six is all the drug I need for my life.— Vandit Chauhan (@basedIITian) March 10, 2019
Bumrah is the best bet in death overs, in both the innings.— Sagar (@sagarcasm) March 10, 2019
That last six from Bumrah had everyone in splits. Even on an excellent batting surface, 358 is a formidable score.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) March 10, 2019

First ball Six ( SR - 600.00)
Kohli enjoyed the most
The incident was reminiscent of veteran Venkatesh Prasad hitting six of the final ball against Ian Harvey during 2000's ICC Champions Trophy.
Jasprit Bumrah's last ball six, ending up with 6* off 1, with a Strike Rate of 600, reminds me of the Ind vs Aus QF in the 2000 ICC Champions Trophy. Venky Prasad smoking Ian Harvey over cover for a 1-ball 6*! Yuvraj 2nd ODI la classy 84 off 80 adicha match, nyabagam iruka? pic.twitter.com/7WEu5CdEl3— Srini Mama (@SriniMaama16) March 10, 2019
