I am learning with each innings and getting better, says KL Rahul

The vuvuzela-blowing 87-year-old Indian fan, who took the internet by storm during their World Cup clash against Bangladesh, says she has been promised tickets for her favourite team's remaining matches by none other than captain Virat Kohli.

Chasing an imposing 338 for win, India could only manage 306 for five, and Kohli lamented his side's inability to accelerate on, what according to him, was a flat track.

"We put in a clinical performance, we batted and bowled well, and we have this winning momentum".

Rahul, who has not been in the best of touch over some time, also credited Rohit for making the transition easy for him.

Kohli has admitted a few times that he does not have the repertoire of strokes of Sharma, whose elegance combined with his hunger for runs makes him such a compelling batsman to watch.

Bangladesh's all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan scripted a record on Tuesday as he became the first player in the history to score more than 500 runs and take 10 wickets in a single World Cup campaign. This game, and much of the tournament has been about teamwork for India. He keeps getting the boundaries and the scoreboard keeps ticking, I just have to keep there with him. I think it was 59m which coincidentally is the minimum required in an global match. "It's insane that things fall in place like that randomly", said the India skipper.

Meanwhile, after adding just four runs, Rohit also completed 1000 runs in 2019 to become the only Indian batsman to reach 1000-run mark in this short span. Against England as well the pitch was two paced and the ball wasn't coming onto the bat as normally I would like to and they used the slower balls really well. 10-15 lesser runs would have been better. Very happy with the way the team has played so far'.

If Australia win their match against South Africa and India win their match against Sri Lanka, Kohli and company will take on England at Edgbaston on July 11. Throughout the innings the feedback was that.

"Every game for me is a new game, and I try and do the same, try and see if I have the portion to finish the game or bat as long as possible and get the team in a good position, things like that", he said.
