Rohit Sharma elated at scoring century in decider against Australia

Rohit Sharma was all smiles as his 116 helped India defeat Australia to help hosts lift ODI series 2-1."It ws an important game, the decider, and we wanted to come out and enjoy ourselves," said Rohit in the post-match presentation ceremony. 

"To keep that Australian batting under 290 was a great effort from the bowling unit. Once KL (Rahul) got out, we knew we needed to stitch a big partnership there and no better person than the captain himself to be out there and us getting that crucial partnership," said Rohit.

"The talk we had in the middle was that one of us wanted to keep going. At no stage, did we want the momentum to go towards the opposition. I was seeing and middling the ball well, and I said I would be the one to take the chances. Days like this, if it comes off, it looks good. If we had lost a wicket in the middle, it would have been different."
