“We all know he (Rohit Sharma) is an aggressive batsman, has done so well for India, especially in World Cup matches. He is just carrying on with his form, he plays according to his instincts.

“It’s a smaller ground and the wicket has been good. Hopefully we’ll be able to get some good runs for our bowlers to defend. It’s very important to play the middle overs well. If you are able to not too lose too many wickets, then you can really capitalize and have a big score.

Rohit Sharma and Gill provided India with an excellent start in the match while chasing the target of 257 runs. Rohit Sharma was the aggressor in the partnership and he allowed Gill to play his natural game. They stitched together 88 runs before Rohit Sharma got out.
