New Delhi. In the Super-4 round match of Asia Cup 2023, India defeated Pakistan by a huge margin of 228 runs. This is a big win for India in terms of runs in ODIs. Batting first in the match, India scored a big score of 356 runs for 2 wickets in 50 overs. However, while chasing the target, Pakistan team could score only 128 runs in 32 overs.

Captain Rohit Sharma looked very happy with this explosive victory over Pakistan. In particular, he praised KL Rahul, who scored a century on his return.
Rohit Sharma said after the match, “The way we batted in the match, there were a lot of positive things for us and then there was the batting of Virat and KL. We know that this was a typical innings of Kohli. He organized his innings well. Very happy for KL. Last minute change. It is not easy to return after recovering from injury. Five minutes before the toss, we had to tell KL Rahul that you are playing. In such circumstances, it is really amazing to enter the match in those conditions and play such innings.”

Rohit also seemed happy with Team India’s bowling. He praised Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav a lot. Rohit said, Bumrah looked in very good form. He swung the ball both ways. He has worked hard in the last 8-15 months. I know how difficult it is to return after such an injury. Bumrah is currently 27. For him to come back and bowl like this shows what Bumrah is.
