Young wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant didn’t have the best of nights during the fourth ODI against Australia in Mohali on Sunday. The Delhi cricketer missed multiple chances behind the stumps and he made matters worse when he tried to pull off a MS Dhoni style back flick to get Alex Carrey run out in the 44th over.

When Carrey failed to get hold of a delivery from Yuzvendra Chahal, the ball hit his pads and rolled over to Pant’s left side. Carrey, without being sure about where the ball had gone, took off for a run instinctively. Pant ran to the ball and instead of conventionally looking and aiming at the stumps, he tried to carry out a no look back flick onto the stumps. Unfortunately, Pant missed the stumps and Carrey scrambled for a single.

Peter Handscomb struck his maiden ODI hundred and Ashton Turner smashed a blistering 84 not out to secure Australia’s series-levelling four-wicket victory against India in the high-scoring fourth one-day international.

Chasing a steep 359 to stay alive in the series, Australia were 12-2 in the fourth over before Handscomb (117) and Usman Khawaja (91) raised 192 runs to put their chase back on track.

Turner then exploded down the order, clobbering six sixes and five fours in his charmed 43-ball blitz as Australia romped home with 13 balls to spare.
