Australia speedster recalls Rohit Sharma’s brutal assault at T20 World Cup, says I had 5 bad balls and he hit… | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Rohit Sharma unleashed a devastating assault on Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc during their Super 8 encounter in St Lucia, leaving spectators in disbelief at his incredible batting display.
Taking on the left-arm pacer, the Indian skipper made a mockery of the Australian pace spearhead, accumulating an impressive 29 runs.
The Starc over saw Rohit demonstrating his effortless boundary-clearing ability, smashing 4 sixes and a four in it.To go with that there was a wide and a dot ball in the over.
Recalling the T20 World Cup game against India during his recent appearance in the LiSTNR Sport podcast, Starc said, “I have had played a lot against him (Rohit). He had a really good tournament, especially the back end. I think he targeted the wind in St. Lucia as well. There was that one end where we conceded a lot more than others. And I was bowling from that very end (laughs). I had 5 bad balls and he hit all for sixes (four 6s and one 4s).
“That was the best wicket we played on in terms of runs scored in the whole World Cup. It was probably the quickest wicket across the West Indies. So we were on the chase for some time, but then a couple of hiccups and some good quality bowling from them just set us back,” he added.

Later in the match, Starc took Rohit’s wicket, with the yorker-length ball shattering his stumps.
Despite the breakthrough, the damage had already been done, as the ‘Hitman’ Rohit amassed an impressive 92 runs from just 41 deliveries.
While India went on to win the T20 World Cup, ending their 17-year drought for the title, Australia’s early exit from the tournament sparked discussions about team selection.
