After taking a crucial 2-0 lead in the five-match series, the Indian cricket team's marauding run came to a halt as Australia romped their way to a 32-run triumph in the 3rd One-Day International (ODI) at the JSCA international stadium in Ranchi. For a team that is considered one of the strongest batting units in international cricket, Indian batsmen, barring Virat Kohli, failed to negate the Aussies in the third match of the series.

But, on 10th March, the batting woes that had given India a reality check in Ranchi were nowhere to be found as the hosts romped their way to a mammoth 358-run total in the 4th ODI at the Punjab Cricket Association stadium in Mohali.

Opting to bat first, India were given a sensational start by Shikhar Dhawan (143) and Rohit Sharma (95) who hammered the opposition bowlers all around the park during their 193-run opening partnership. If the openers got India to a flyer, the pivotal cameos by Rishabh Pant (36) and Vijay Shankar (26) ensured their side didn't lose momentum later in the game.

While there was no shortage of star performers during India's innings, there was one man who stole the limelight from the rest.

Arguably one of the best death-overs bowlers in limited-overs cricket, Jasprit Bumrah is known for his bowling prowess and ability to get the better of some of the best batsmen in business. But, when he came out to face Pat Cummins for the final delivery of India's innings, neither a cricket pundit, nor any fan would have anticipated what Bumrah had in store for them.

Cummins had just notched up his five-for after dismissing Yuzvendra Chahal a ball earlier and probably fancied his chances of claiming a sixth scalp in the match. But, it wasn't meant to be as Bumrah smashed the length delivery over midwicket for a towering six. And, while Bumrah's hit was quite surprising, the reactions were pretty obvious.

Bumrah's meaty blow had Cummins in disbelief, Kohli jumping in excitement and the Mohali crowd on their feet. Walking off with a wide grin, Bumrah was mighty pleased with his six which powered India to 358-run total in the end. It was the first six for Bumrah in international cricket. He now has seven sixes to his name, four in List A games and three in T20s.

That last six from Bumrah had everyone in splits. Even on an excellent batting surface, 358 is a formidable score.
