Rohit, who has scored three double centuries in ODIs, last scored a century in this format in January 2020. During this, his rate of converting half-centuries into centuries has come down significantly.

In the second ODI against New Zealand here on Saturday, the opener smashed a brilliant 51 off 50 balls studded with seven fours and two sixes to help India clinch the match and the series by eight wickets.

Later this year, the Indian team has to play in the 50-over World Cup on home soil. Rohit said that the team wants to do all kinds of things (experiments) before going into this important competition.

India’s pace attack decimated New Zealand’s frail batting line-up in the second ODI here on Saturday as the hosts clinched an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series with an eight-wicket win.

The pace attack, led by Mohammed Shami, performed brilliantly on a difficult pitch as India bundled out New Zealand for 108 to seal an eight-wicket win.

New Zealand had lost five wickets for 15 runs in the 11th over, in which the role of Shami (3/18) and Mohammad Siraj (1/10) was important. Hardik Pandya (2 for 16) also impressed.

Rohit said, “I felt the bowlers really took responsibility in the last five matches. He did whatever we told him. This is especially difficult to do in India. You expect such performances abroad but such performances in India require real skill.

New Zealand skipper Tom Latham said that failing to build partnerships has cost his team. He said, “It was not a good day for the top order batsmen. India bowled well from the start and didn’t give us chances to score runs. The pitch was helping the bowlers.

Latham said, “Unfortunately we were unable to build a partnership. Every time you want to perform brilliantly but we could not adapt to the conditions.” Man of the match Shami said that he would always focus on maintaining the right line and length. Let’s pay attention.

He said, “I always try to bowl good rhythm and line and length. Like watching the ball flutter in the air. I just try to use the seam properly.
