Pakistan calls for ICC action over India army camouflage caps

Rohit Sharma impressed everyone with his brilliant batting performance during the fourth ODI encounter between India and Australia in Mohali on Sunday and although he missed out on a century by just 5 runs, the Indian cricket team opener was able to add another major milestone to his already illustrious career.

"I'm pretty happy", he said after hitting eight fours and three sixes in his 105-ball knock.

A 192-run second-wicket partnership between Handscomb, who smashed 117 off 105 balls, and Usman Khawaja, who made 91, was key to taking the series into the final match in Delhi tomorrow.

During Friday's third ODI in Ranchi that Australia won, the DRS had made headlines after a ball-tracking error. Kohli was referring to the incident that took place in the 44th over of Australia's innings. Rishabh Pant was certain that Turner had nicked and asked for a caught behind appeal to be reviewed for which Kohli gave his nod.

England all-rounder Moeen Ali was banned five years ago for wearing wristbands showing off slogans "Save Gaza" and "Free Palestine" during a test match against India.

Australia chase down a record-breaking target of 359 runs, making it the highest ever total that Indian team failed to defend in its ODI history, losing the game by four wickets.

"We were sloppy in the field and should've grabbed our chances", Kohli said of his team's fielding lapses.

As the dew set in, Handscomb felt that he and Khawaja could play their natural game as there wasn't much spin on offer.

Mani said that Pakistan's stance is very clear that cricket must not be used for politics.

"We had to get the fifth bowler out of the way and we wanted to get done with it first".

The pair put on a sensational third-wicket stand of 192 before Ashton Turner, in just his second ODI worldwide, finished the job with a fantastic 84 off just 43 balls after he had replaced Marcus Stoinis in the side and he will keep his place for the deciding match. "We have to work hard and we got to come up with more intensity and passion in the next game", he said.

The last ODI in Feroz Shah Kotla was in 2016 against New Zealand when India went down by six runs in a close encounter.
