Indian opening batsman Rohit Sharma scored his 22nd ODI hundred in the first ODI against Australia in Sydney, but sadly it was not enough to take his side over the line. He slammed 133 in 129 balls and hit 10 fours along with six sixes.

India eventually managed 254/9, falling 35 runs short of their target of 289.

Earlier, Australia made 288/5 after winning the toss and electing to bat on a batting friendly pitch.

When Rohit got-out, India’s score was 221/7, meaning he had done the bulk of the scoring. Along with MS Dhoni (51), Rohit put on 137 runs for the 4th wicket to rescue India from 4/3 after the likes of Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli had fallen cheaply.

Rohit celebrated after becoming a father in style but unfortunately his ‘daddy’ hundred went in vain.
