Rohit goes gaga about Gabbar.. Don't miss

New Delhi, Sep 24: Elated India captain, Rohit Sharma, showered praise on his bowlers after his side registered a comfortable nine-wicket win over arch-rivals Pakistan here on Sunday.

Riding on centuries from Sharma (111 not out) and Shikhar Dhawan (114), and their 210-run opening stand, India made little work of Pakistan's fighting 237/7 to win with 10.3 overs to spare. 

Continuing their winning spree, the men in blue came up with another superb show to outclass Pakistan, thanks to the Indian bowlers and openers Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan.

"The entire bowling unit stuck to their task and hats off to them. Repeated performances are challenging in these conditions and once again I don't want to take any credit from the bowlers," Rohit, the stand-in India skipper, said after the match.

"With Shikhar, I don't need to talk much. It's important to let him be himself. We have batted enough to know each other to start off like that and we clearly know our roles," he added.

Meanwhile, praising the Pakistan bowling attack, centurion Dhawan said: Pakistan has got a good bowling attack and I knew that as openers we have to stay because they have got good pace; and once I got set, I kept carrying on.

"As I've mentioned I wanted to be sensible with my shots. I've thrown it away in the past and I have learnt my lessons the hard way," he added.

India will now take on Afghanistan in their last Super Four tie here on Tuesday.
