Indian opener Rohit Sharma was dismissed for mere 12 by fast-bowler Shane Watson, after being bowled by him, against Australia in the Super 10 Group 2, Match 31 of the ongoing ICC World T20 2016 at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium in Mohali on Sunday. It was a fine cutter from Watson, fails to read the ball, as he steps out to play a cut, misses completely, as the ball shatters the stumps, while Watson screams a powerful ‘come on’, as Rohit makes his way back. Currently, India are 37 for the loss of two wicket in six overs, with Virat Kohli on 11 and Suresh Raina coming in. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Australia, Super 10 Group 2, Match 31 at Mohali

Earlier, Australian skipper Steven Smith won the toss and elected to bat first, as they posted a challenging total of 160 for the loss of six wickets in 20 overs, courtesy of a healthy 43 from opener Usman Khawaja. Both the teams move in with an unchanged squad from their respective previous games, as the track is expected to be on the slower side, and it’s the same track where earlier on Sunday, India Women were beaten by the West Indies Women, thus knocking them out of the competition. The winner of this tie is also assured of a place in the semi-final, while the loser is on his way out. LIVE CRICKET UPDATES: India vs Australia, Super 10 Group 2, Match 31 at Mohali

India and Australia face-off in the virtual quarter-final at Mohali on Sunday. The winner will become the second and final team to enter the semi-final round of T20 World Cup 2016 from Group 2, which has witnessed an intense battle among almost all teams playing way below their standards. Both India and Australia head into this clash at the PCA Stadium in Mohali with impressive wins in their previous matches, and the game on Sunday evening promises to be among the fiercely-contested ones so far in the tournament.
