Rohit Sharma scored 92 runs off 41 balls with the help of 7 fours and 8 sixes as India posted a total of 205 for 5 in 20 overs against Australia in St Lucia. Rohit Sharma fell to Mitchell Starc after smashing 7 fours and 8 sixes during his knock.

During the game, Rohit Sharma became the first batter in the world to register 200 sixes in T20I cricket. Rohit Sharma also became the batter with most sixes against a single opponent in international cricket. Earlier, Australia captain Mitchell Marsh won the toss and opted to bowl first

Rohit Sharma's sensational performance today, included hitting Mitchell Starc for 29 runs in a single over and scoring 76 out of his 92 runs in boundaries. Reaching his half-century off just 19 balls, Sharma dominated the innings even as the other batsman at the crease managed only 2 runs off 13 balls. This game was all about him.

India's captain initially expressed a preference to bowl first but made an emphatic statement with the bat after being asked to set a target. Sharma's 92 from 41 balls is already being hailed as one of the great World Cup innings. He smashed 15 boundaries, while the rest of the team combined for 14. India's momentum slowed in the final six overs, managing only five boundaries in that period.

With a semi-final spot on the line, Australia now faces the daunting task of matching India's explosive performance. Karthik Krishnaswamy will soon bring you the live updates as Australia takes on this challenge.

Suryakumar Yadav, speaking to the host broadcaster, praised Sharma's knock: "[Rohit knock] Felt like a dream, he batted beautifully. We talked about what brand we want to play and he showed us the way. It's a good score, good wicket. Hopefully something for the bowlers when we go in. Everyone knows their role, playing as a team."
