Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are easily the best white ball batsmen in the world right now. Imagine watching the duo bat together! Well, the world witnessed this magical site in the series decider of the India Vs England T20 series. The skipper and his deputy did exactly what was expected by the Indian cricket fans.
Rohit and Kohli gave the home side a strong start with the bat after the English skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss and invited India to bat first. Both the batsmen begin their hitting spree with a four each in the second over and there was no looking back after that as they shared a 94-run stand off just 54 balls.
By the time the powerplay came to an end, India had raced away to 60 for no loss. Rohit was the aggressor during the stand while Kohli enjoyed the hell of a hitting masterclass by the Indian vice-captain.
The Hitman brought up his fifty in style by dispatching Sam Curran for a six. The right-handed batsman reached his fifty off just 30 balls. Ben Stokes put an end to the stand when he bowled Rohit in the 9th over after being hit for a four and a six. Rohit departed after scoring 64 off 34 balls.

What a start for India. 110/1 in 10overs thanks to some fine hitting from Rohit. With Virat and Surya looking in sublime touch will be surprised if India doesn’t get 215+. #INDvENG
