Indian captain Virat Kohli smashed 61 off 41 balls and scored the winning runs, reeling in Australia’s 165, with two balls to spare to ensure his side tied the T20I series at 1-1 after the hosts won game one and the second clash was rained out.
Sunday’s topsy-turvy tussle was played in front of a sell-out crowd of 37,339, a venue record for a T20 international, and there was one instance which caught the imagination of the viewers.
In the 16th over of second innings, Australia skipper Aaron Finch brought on Glenn Maxwell to provide a breakthrough. But on the third ball of the over, Kohli beautifully flicked one to the midwicket for a six. It was then caught by a security guard who was standing right behind the boundary line. The replays showed the guard nearly dropped the ball but used his body to catch the ball.
After throwing the ball back into the field, the guard looked visibly happy and was applauded by the fans sitting in the stands. He then went to the spectators where they cheered and congratulated him.
