But the historic moment was tarnished after French DJ Martin Solveig , a presenter at the Paris gala, asked the soccer star if she wanted to twerk on stage, prompting gasps in the crowd.

We haven't played Australia after everything that has happened so I can not really say what the atmosphere is going to be on the ground like. India were poor in the field on Wednesday. Chris Lynn started the acceleration process of host's innings with 37 runs from 20 balls.
