Well, Shikhar Dhawan once again displays his dancing skills in the middle at Sydney Cricket Grounds. He does the Bhangra to the beats of the crowd when he was guarding the boundary fence during the first ODI of the game. It wasn’t the first time, as Shikhar Dhawan often does that for the fans of Indian National Cricket Team.
Dhawan was spotted doing the bhangra for the fans in the deep mid-wicket boundary. It was an impromptu dance move and the fans were ecstatic on seeing Gabbar do it. This is not the first time Gabbar has impressed fans with his bhangra moves, he had done it last year in England as well.
Coming to the game, Shikhar Dhawan will carry a lot of expectations from the fans during the chase. He has been the best knocker of the ball in the T20I series. He is coming into the game after missing out Test series and would like to deliver the goods straight away.

As it happened:
Initially, it was Australia, who won the toss and asked Indians to bowl first. The Australian skipper Aaron Finch carried his poor form, as he was gone for a cheap score to his name. The new opener Alex Carey has got the start but failed to covert it.
However, Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh batted brilliantly to make things happen for Australia. The duo added 92 runs for the 3rd wicket before Kuldeep Yadav sending Shaun Marsh back to the hut.
Meanwhile, Peter Handscomb batted beautifully to stabilise the things in the middle. He found the fence more often than not and rotated the strike brilliantly. He finished with 73 to his name.
Marcus Stoinis also hung in the middle to balance the ship. But, unfortunately, he couldn’t quite pace up the innings, which saw Australians scoring below 300 on the board.
