The Men in Blue's dominant performance on the field also kept fans on the edge and Twitter buzzing. From the moment the teams came out for the national anthem, to KL Rahul hitting the final ball of the innings for four, India's players were cheered by a sell-out, vociferous crowd on the field and on the micro- blogging website.
When it came about the most tweeted moments, Dhawan's impressive century against the Kangaroos was at the top. It was followed by Hardik Pandya's whirlwind 27-ball 48 which helped India cross 350 runs against Australia and the 127-run opening partnership between Rohit and Dhawan in the same match.
Meanwhile, in the same match featuring the two rivals, Indian fans in Kennigton Oval gave Smith and David Warner a rough welcome as they booed and chanted 'cheater' when they took the field. However, showing true sportsman's spirit Kohli urged the spectators twice to stop booing the Australian duo.
Fans also took note of Kohli's gesture and the Indian skipper's picture of appealing to the spectators was also the most tweeted and retweeted picture on Twitter.
