Indian opener and Test vice-captain, Rohit Sharma, in the ongoing series against Australia had a field day on the fourth day of the series decider at the Gabba in Brisbane.

Sharma was in the mood to mimic everyone and on the couple of occasions that he did, it left the fans as well as onlookers in splits.

The first such instance took place immediately in the first over of the Australian innings after the first drinks during the morning session.

Australian openers David Warner and Marcus Harris had got off to a brilliant start to the day as they smashed the Indian bowlers to all corners of the Gabba in the first hour to take the score to 0/89. However, just at the stroke of the drink’s break, Shardul Thakur struck courtesy a sharp bumper to Marcus Harris.

And, immediately after the break, Washington Sundar got into the act as he trapped the dangerous-looking David Warner plumb in front of the wickets.

Umpire Paul Wilson immediately adjudged Warner LBW. The southpaw even started walking with a dejected look on his face before being convinced by his partner Marnus Labuschagne to go for the review.

Warner did go for the review. However, as it turned out, the decision stayed post the review as the ball tracker showed three reds.

On-field Umpire Paul Wilson was asked by the 3rd umpire to stay with his onfield decision but just as he was about to raise his finger again, Rohit Sharma also raised his finger in complete sync.

The second instance came when Rohit Sharma mimicked Steve Smith as he shadow-batted between overs with the former Australian watching in amusement.

Meanwhile, Australia has established their dominance in the game as they have racked up their second innings lead past the 300-run-mark with two wickets still in the bank.
