Kolkata 2014, Perth 2016, Colombo 2017, Kanpur 2017, and Guwahati 2018. They have made a habit of registering 200-plus partnerships in ODIs. The beauty of this partnership, once again, was the unmitigated trust the two have in each other. They seem genuinely comfortable at each other’s company.
After their 230-run partnership against New Zealand in Kanpur last year, Virat, in an interview to bcci.tv, said: “Generally when we play together, we don’t have to say much because we both understand where the game is going. We both think for the team so it’s always great batting with him because you don’t have to say much. We know if we play our games then the team will benefit and we can score big runs because we both want to play long,” he observed.
The Indian captain put things in perspective after the win on Sunday: “Life isn’t difficult when Rohit is at the other end. It happens rarely when he (Rohit) plays second fiddle. Among the top three, I’ve always preferred the anchor role, but today I felt good about myself and I communicated with Rohit that he should play the anchor’s role,” he explained. Despite the role reversal, the team management will not be complaining one bit. Another ODI in the run-up to the 2019 World Cup, yet another dominant win.
