Rohit was dismissed while trying to execute an uncalled for sweep shot from a stump-to-stump line after Nathan Lyon was introduced in the 20th over. The batter was batting comfortably till then and had scored 43 brisk runs off just 59 deliveries.
Cheteshwar Pujara also followed Rohit six deliveries later on the fourth ball of the 20th over. The right-hand batter, who scored 27 off 47 balls, leaned back while trying to play an uppercut on a bouncer from Pat Cummins. However, he was cramped for room and as a result ended up edging the delivery into the hands of wicket-keeper Alex Carey.
With dismissal India were reduced 92/1 in 19.4 overs to 93/3 in 20.4 overs. With the WTC trophy slipping away, here’s how fans reacted to the fall of Rohit and Pujara’s wicket. Even Nasser Hussain blasted Rohit in the commentary box for not delivering for India in knockout matches.

We can see that immense pain on Rohit Sharma’s face.
If you are still trolling this guy who has put his whole heart and hard work for his country, then you are not a human but a devil. pic.twitter.com/eIkvv4j6Fh

It’s high time to replace ROHIT Sharma with Yashaswi Jaiswal for sake of Indian Cricket.
