Australia still needed more than 11 per over with seven overs to go, and that's when Maxwell brought out his bag 'o tricks. India are 0-1 down and would be desperate to ensure that a home series does not slip out of their grip.

Some Twitter users questioned why the fire department needed to break the windows, though many applauded them for a job well done.

Crews broke out the car's back window and ran the hose line through it.

Both rear windows of the vehicle were broken and the fire hose threaded through the auto in order to reach the hydrant.
