LONDON: KL Rahul struck with a tidy mind and was perhaps at his best while executing plans perfectly throughout his great hundred, says opening partner Rohit Sharma.

Rohit himself scored an attractive 83 and added 126 for the opening stand with Rahul who finished the first day of the second Test with 127 unbeaten.

« It was probably the best KL bat I’ve seen, and he was in control from the first ball to the Today. A lot of control, « said Rohit after Thursday’s game of the day.

 » At no point did it look like he was confused or thought too much. He was very clear about his plans and if you trust his plans it definitely works senior player said.

Rohit’s own innings laid the groundwork and he seemed happy that both he and Rahul were able to Controlling their minds while facing the new ball and reducing the risky shots.

« That’s the challenge in test cricket. You may have a lot of shots in your book, but when you know the conditions are against you, you need to keep talking to yourself and reduce the shots that are unnecessary, especially with the new ball, « explained Rohit.

« Once you play and get a feel for the field and conditions, maybe you can try to play a few strokes. We respect the terms here and it’s also important to go out and make plans. It’s something we’ve done reasonably well as a batting group – from the Australian tour to today. « 

 » Our batters now understand their role, which is the most important, and I think they play their roles. « 

When asked what kind of conversations he had with Rahul when they first opened in England the answer was a signature Rohit.

« Honestly, there was no discussion as KL didn’t play the first game and Mayank (Agarwal) was supposed to play that game.

« Unfortunately he (Mayank) was hit on the head and he missed due to a concussion and then only KL kicked in. When we went out we discussed what we were going to do Have to do and things like that. Yes, I played test cricket with KL first, but I hit with him a couple of times. « 

Fighting test conditions can feel very lonely and if the batting partner is communicative, do it work much easier.

“We know the game e each other and we understand each other’s games. And it’s important to always talk in the middle. It can be very lonely out there when not communicating and I find it nice to have a partner who is willing to be willing to communicate and move the game forward.

« KL and I – our mindset is pretty similar and we want to move the game forward. « 

Although he doesn’t see his innings as the best he has beaten overseas, he feels it was the toughest.

 » I wouldn’t say that it’s the best innings because as long as you play you will have many options, but certainly the most demanding.

« I felt very good, very happy with our start and the unfortunate dismissal, we couldn’t have done anything about it » , Rohit concluded.
