HIGHLIGHTS

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul have formed a solid partnership for Men in Blue in the ongoing World Cup since Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of the tournament. Rahul, who has opened the innings in his absence, has played some impressive knocks including the 77 against Bangladesh. However, he has failed to convert starts into big ones and has been overshadowed by Rohit Sharma's brilliance.

With Hitman going great guns in the World Cup, Rahul stated it would be a foolish thing to do if decides to bat like his opening partner. Rahul further added that he has done well in the event so far but isn't fully convinced with his display for India.

"You would be a fool to be tempted to bat like Rohit because he is in a different class, he is from a different planet altogether when he gets going," he said.

"It will be great to score big runs for every batsman when he walks in that's what he wants to do. I've been batting well, in a good headspace. I just want to keep doing the things I've been doing right, try and probably improve each innings and see if I can prolong the right things I've been doing till 60-70. If I can do it for a bit longer, obviously I'll get the big score and it will benefit the team," he added.
