Kohli appreciates Rohit's fine cenury

Rohit Sharma’s 23rd ODI century yesterday was pivotal in anchoring India’s chase of 228 against South Africa and he steered them over the line by six wickets with 15 balls remaining. Team India skipper Kohli was all praise for Rohit. He says, "I think it was by far his best ODI innings,” said Kohli. “Partly because of the kind of pressure that a first game in a World Cup brings. “I know when you go in and a few balls bounce like that early on, it’s not easy to gather yourself and be calm. There can be a tendency to try and hit your way out of the situation but Rohit was very composed.“He’s played lots of games, so we expect maturity and a level responsibility from him but of all the brilliant innings I’ve seen him play, this is top of the pile."
