India dropped out of form KL Rahul in the decider game and stepped on ground with 6 bowlers. KL Rahul who has scores of 1,0,0 and 14 in the series so far didn’t play and T Natarajan replaced him in the team. Virat Kohli decided to open the innings with Hitman in a must-win encounter.
Rohit Sharma played a classical hitman inning and gave an excellent start to team with Virat. Hitman played the attacking innings whereas Virat Kohli played the second fiddle. Rohit Sharma scored 64 in just 34 balls and set the tone for team India. Virat Kohli switched the gears in the end and remained unbeaten on 80 in the end. India scored 224 runs in 20 overs and won the game by 36 runs. India won the series 3-2.
Not just Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli fans but cricket fans around the world were surprised with the duo opening the innings. Twitterati reacted quickly to this and Rohirat was trending on social media in no time. Here are the top reactions.

What a start for India. 110/1 in 10overs thanks to some fine hitting from Rohit. With Virat and Surya looking in sublime touch will be surprised if India doesn’t get 215+. #INDvENG
