Chasing a mammoth total of 350 in the sixth One-Day International (ODI) against Australia at Nagpur, India got off to a decent start with 26 for no loss in five overs.

Rohit Sharma started things off with a beautiful cover-drive for four off Mitchell Johnson. Shikhar Dhawan then flicked an over-pitched delivery through mid-wicket for four off Johnson.

Rohit then lofted one over the covers for another four as Johnson tried to come over the wicket. He has been fluent in driving through the off-side in this innings.
