Rohit Sharma escaped from the head injury during 4th ODI against Australia.

India opener batsman and the only first player to hit two double hundred and the best highest score in ODI, Rohit Sharma escaped a head injury during the fourth ODI between India and Australia Bengaluru on Thursday. The incident happened in the 16th over of India's innings, when Rohit took a single off a Travis Head delivery and gave the strike to Ajinkya Rahane. Australia wicketkeeper Matthew Wade collected the ball and threw it towards Head, but his throw landed straight on the Rohit's head at the non-striker's end. Fortunately, the Indian opener's helmet prevented any damage. Wade apologized to Rohit immediately for his action which went completely wrong. The Indian opener moves on with the incident with a smile on his face.

Earlier, Hardik Pandya was involved in a more serious incident in the 2nd ODI at Eden Gardens in Kolkata after a Bhuvneshwar Kumar shot hit him flush on the grill of the helmet, sending him crashing to the ground.

There was consternation in both the Indian and Australian camps when the ball struck Pandya, with Bhuvneshwar and Australian team rushing towards Pandya. Visiting captain Steve Smith immediately waved towards the dressing room for the physio. Fortunately, the all-rounder was not hurt and soon went back to the crease, with loud cheers greeting his recovery.

Opener David Warner hit a sparkling century in his 100th one-day international to help Australia down India by 21 runs and pull off a comfortable win for Australia. Warner's shining 124 and his 231-run opening stand with Aaron Finch, who made 94, guided the visitors to 334-5 in the fourth game of the five-match series in Bangalore. The hosts, who lead the series 3-1, will take on Steve Smith's men in the fifth and final ODI on October 1 in Nagpur.
