I always admired him and is a class act: KL Rahul on Rohit
 
Ranchi, KL Rahul, who belted 65 match-winning runs to help India seal the three-match T20I series against New Zealand here on Friday, said he always admired Rohit Sharma's batting and is a class act.

"I and Rohit enjoy batting with each other and I always admired Rohit's batting. He is a class batsman and shown the world that over the years so I really enjoying batting with him and we really try to take the pressure off each other and if there is a bowler that I can't get away then without even me having to say it to him he takes down that bowler, so my job becomes a bit easier and we found a way to get runs at the top of the order," he said at presentation ceremony.

Rahul wishes to keep giving solid starts for India. Rohit scored a magnificent 55 runs to see India through, though he started on a slow note, allowing Rahul to go after the bowlers.

Rahul also said the openers work is to lay a solid foundation for middle order players like Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer in the batting lineup and Venkatesh Iyer, who is playing his first series to go after the opposition for the target.

On Indian openers' approach to a chase, Rahul said, "We always give ourselves a couple of overs to see what the pitch is doing and then try and assess what are the shots we can play and who are the bowlers we can target and at rate we need to go at."

Rahul said they enjoy their batting and sometimes take more chances in the middle if the team has wickets in hand.

"Just try and enjoy our batting and when we get a start like that there comes a time when both of us decide that both of us have to take down whoever is bowling and that's exactly what Rohit did and we try and build from him. We try to see what works best for us as a batting unit, we want to take more chances in the middle if we have wickets in hand and we want to trust our middle-order," he said.


On bowlers pulling it back, Rahul said they did a really good work after the first 6 overs by deciding on a change of pace bluffing the batsman.

"Wicket was really good and the ball was soaking wet, so it was hard for the bowlers to bowl as well and initially it didn't grip as much as we thought it would and we played around with the field and really happy that we could restrict New Zealand for 150 odd after the kind of start they got," he said.
