India skipper Virat Kohli once again showed that he is a true team man when his deputy Rohit Sharma lofted Josh Hazlewood straight back over his head for a six on Sunday during the third ODI against Australia in M. Chinnaswamy, Bengaluru.

It happened in the 32nd over of the match and Kohli was spotted pumping his fists after the 32-year-old India opener played the shot. Knowing well that the mid-on was in the circle he took the opportunity and went after Hazlewood and it came off well.
