On Day 2, Usman Khawaja had already surrendered to Ravindra Jadeja trying to play a sweep shot. On Day 3, Travis Head fell to a turning delivery of Ashwin and Australia turned to sweep. Steve Smith, Matt Renshaw, Pat Cummins, Alex Carey and Matt Kuhnemann all fell victim to the sweep. Australian great Matthew Hayden did not leave the chance to mock Pat Cummins & Co. He brought a broom to the Delhi Pitch, showcasing how Steve Smith & Co died by a thousand sweeps. Other greats like Allan Border, Mark Waugh among others were not funny enough as they made scathing remarks about Australia’s approach. Despite the sweeping madness, India chased down the target with 6 wickets to spare and Ravindra Jadeja was declared the player of the match.
