The Indian team could not have asked for a better end to their already amazing Sunday where they defeated Pakistan comprehensively in the Super-Four game in the Asia Cup 2018.
Rohit Sharma and his boys thrashed Pakistan by nine wickets to make it to the final of the Asia Cup in Dubai and the celebrations were at full swing in the dressing room.
Apart from India’s win, it was also Ambati Rayudu’s birthday, who had remained unbeaten on 12 off 18 balls against Pakistan.
While the Indian players followed their old tradition of smacking the cake on the birthday boy’s face, they were thoroughly entertained by Kedar Jadhav’s dance moves.
The all-rounder gave the likes of Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar run for their money when he shook his leg to the tunes of Akshay and Shilpa Shetty’s famous song Churake Dil Mera. His performance continued for Salman Khan’s track Oh Oh Jane Jana.

Rohit and the other centurion, Shikhar Dhawan, led India to a fantastic nine-wicket win over their arch-rivals and meanwhile, Rohit also reached the landmark of 7,000 ODI runs and became only the ninth Indian to do so after Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, MS Dhoni, Kohli, Mohammad Azharuddin, Yuvraj Singh, and Virender Sehwag.
While Hashim Amla was the fastest to reach the 7,000-landmark, who took only 150 innings to get there, Kohli stood second when he entered the 7,000-club in 161 innings.
Meanwhile, Rohit has bettered the record of the Indian legends like Tendulkar, Dhoni, and others to become the third fastest Indian batsman (181 innings) and overall, fifth, to have scored 7,000 and more international runs in the 50-over format. Second fastest Indian batsman to reach 7,000 ODI runs still remains Ganguly (174 innings).
