Dhoni and Kohli praise Rohit Sharma

Dhaka, Mar 19: Indian skipper MS Dhoni praised the batsmen for a spectacular performance and said middle order batsman Rohit Sharma, can become a good finisher of the game, as Virat Kohli revealed that he loves to watch Rohit bat, after India's victory against Pakistan by 6 wickets on Sunday.

Dhoni gave credit to Pakistan batsmen as they played posted 329, and he had to use as many as eight bowlers, spoke about how difficult it was to stop the batsmen from scoring more runs as the score had crossed 300.

"They (Pakistan) batted brilliantly, we used eight bowlers. Sachin and Virat batted brilliantly, Rohit can be a good finisher. Kohli was brilliant. Once you cross 300 it's difficult irrespective of how flat the pitch is, we did it in Hobart," Dhoni said in the post-match conference.

He further added saying, the current team has enough talent but it depends on how to handle pressure, and assured that the team will learn from such games.

"We've got the talent in the bowling department also. It's about how you handle pressure, they will learn from games like these," he said.

After Dhoni, it was Kohli's turn to talk about Rohit Sharma (68) after he was adjudged the man of the match for his stellar 183 off 148 balls, joined fourth highest by an Indian cricketer.

Kohli has revealed that he loves Rohit Sharma'a batting as he was involved with yet another big partnership with the middle order batsman to successfully guide India home chasing a mammoth 330 against arch rivals Pakistan on Sunday.

"I still can't believe what happened out there honestly. I'm really satisfied. We were waiting for these 3-4 overs of 15-20 runs. I'm a fan of Rohit Sharma, love watching him bat. I would rate this knock and Hobart equally. To be able to chase 330 against this bowling is satisfying," said Kohli.
