On the third ball, he slammed the ball down the ground to pick up a four. He tonked the third six into the crowd over deep midwicket on a delivery that clocked 144kph.

Starc found a moment of reprieve after pulling off a dot ball on the fifth delivery. Starc and Australia's woes increased after he bowled a wide on the final delivery. The left-arm pacer went for a yorker to finish off the over, but he couldn't nail it and bowled a full toss. Rohit had a full swing at it and the ball sailed over the third man for another six. Starc's scorching yorker brought an end to Rohit's knock.
