Australia is buzzing at the moment with Team India touring the country amid COVID-19 scare. The 2020-21 summer down under has been crunched to only one team visiting and it is a blockbuster clash between the two top teams. Also, with the COVID-19 cases under control in some states, the crowds, at 50% capacity, have also been allowed to witness the epic clashes at the stadium.
With the crowd returning to the stadiums, their epic acts also returned as it all started with a fan running into the ground during one of the ODIs in Sydney taking a dig at the businessman Adani over the controversial coal mine project in the country. Moreover, one of the Indian fans also proposed his Australian girlfriend and the proposal was accepted with the video going viral.
As the action returned to the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Sunday for the second T20I between India and Australia, a banner in a lady fan’s hand went viral during the match. Cameras spotted her placard during the 8th over of Australia’s innings and soon it was trending on social media. She had hilariously stated she will kiss her partner for every boundary scored in the match.
28 fours and 16 sixes were hit in the AUS vs IND match
With boundaries in focus, thanks to the hilarious banner, India and Australia were involved in a high-scoring encounter as the jam-packed crowd (50% full) witnessed close to 400 runs being scored in less than 40 overs. Australia posted a mammoth total of 194 runs for the loss of five wickets in their 20 overs. Their skipper Matthew Wade led from the front scoring 58 runs while Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell also batted well.
In the chase, India had Shikhar Dhawan crossing the 50-run mark while Virat Kohli slammed a 24-ball 40. But Hardik Pandya was the match-winner for the visitors. He smashed an unbeaten 42 off 22 balls taking the game deep and finishing it in style with two sixes in the final over helping India seal the series with one match to go. A total of 28 fours and 16 sixes were hit in the game which must have definitely entertained the crowd.
