Ravi asked what is the talk the two have when in the middle, to which Rohit Sharma said that during the first five overs they chat cricket, but after that, they chat on topics not relating to cricket.

Meanwhile, stand-in captain Rohit Sharma and his deputy Shikhar Dhawan continued their red-hot form in white ball cricket with dominating hundreds as India crush arch-rivals Pakistan by nine wickets to register their second straight victory in the super four stage in the ongoing Asia Cup 2018. With this emphatic win, the men in blue have stormed into the finals of the continental series, hosted in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Interestingly, this is India’s biggest win against traditional rivals Pakistan in terms of the number of wickets lost. Chasing a target of 238, Rohit (111 no off 119 balls) and Dhawan (114 off 100 balls) flayed the Pakistan attack adding 210 runs for the opening stand to seal their second lopsided victory in the tournament in only 39.3 overs.
It was Rohit’s third successive fifty 50 plus score in the tournament with the sequence being 52, 83 no and 111*.
