CricketWATCH: Rohit Sharma six hits kid during first ODI against England

Srinagar: While India crushed England in a one sided contest on Wednesday at The Oval, one moment made everyone nervous, when India captain Rohit Sharma’s six hit a child in the crowd.

After bundling out England for 110 run total, India on the back of unbeaten 76 run knock by Sharma cruised to 10 wicket win.

During his free flowing assualt on English bowlers, Rohit brought out his pull and hook shots to good effect against the England pacers’ short balls.
He played one such shot in the fifth over by David Willey, which resulted in a six. After the shot, the broadcasters showed visuals of a man holding a kid in his arms.

Commentators said that the ball, which landed in the stands, had hit the kid. Later, England physios attended to the kid.

Earlier, Jasprit Bumrah produced a devastating spell of fast bowling on way to career best six-wicket haul, helping India skittle out England for 110 in the first ODI. Bumrah ended with dream figures of six for 19 in 7.2 overs and in the process became the first Indian pacer to take five or more wickets in an ODI in England.

India cruised in the chase as Rohit Sharma stayed unbeaten on 76 (58 balls) while fellow opener Shikhar Dhawan was unbeaten on 31 (54 balls). India lost no wickets as India reached the target in 18.4 overs.
