Indian batting coach Vikram Rathore after the end of day one
“Rohit is such a good player that he cannot be excluded from any format. It was the right decision to start the innings with him. The number of runs he has scored so far has pacified the issue of openings for now.”
Vikram Rathore further said, “If a batsman like him does well above all, then they change everything for the team. He will also feature as an opener on an overseas tour. He is such an experienced player, and I don’t think you need to tamper with his technique. All he needed was a mental change in his game plan.”
“Ajinkya Rahane showed great intent today. Whenever he bats with this intent, he looks really good player. They were bowling in good areas. There was some help in the wicket. You have to as a batsman needs to survive the time which Rohit did very well. They punished the bat, ball once the wicket settled down little. So they could drive good shot played by Ajinkya. Great partnership.”
