A young star of Team India provides insight about destructive partnerships with captain Rohit Sharma for the World Cup

The young batsman of the Indian cricket team, Shubman Gill, has provided some valuable insights about his destructive batting partnership with Captain Rohit Sharma. Senior batter Rohit will be leading the Virat Kohli-starrer side as India have finally announced their star-studded Asia Cup squad, which is expected to get trimmed for the ICC World Cup.
Gill, who has become India's all-format opening batsman, feels that his partnership with Rohit can thrive at the grandest stage of them all—the ICC World Cup. Before the showpiece event in India, Rohit and Gill will be leading the batting charge of Team India at the upcoming continental tournament in Sri Lanka. Talking about his partner-in-crime in the lead-up to the Asia Cup, opener Gill explained how the different batting styles of the openers have worked well for Team India across formats.
Gill said, "I think because Rohit's targeted areas are a bit different from mine. He loves to go aerial in the Powerplay. And I'm someone who likes to find the gaps and keep getting those boundaries, and he's someone who likes to hit sixes. So I think that combination works well."
He further added, "It feels great to be able to open up with him, especially knowing that all the focus is on him. He's someone who likes the other batters to go and just express themselves and play the way I want to play the game. So in that nature, he gives the players full freedom for how they want to express their game."
