A 233-run partnership between Virat Kohli and KL Rahul also broke an Asia Cup (ODI) record. the pair from Pakistan, Mohammad Hafeez and N Jamshed, who put together a 224-run partnership against India in 2012, fell short of the mark. The legendary Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka now shares Virat Kohli’s record of four century in the Asia Cup. In the continental competition, only Sanath Jayasuriya (6) has more tons.

Shubman Gill applauded the pair’s performance.

Very unique for us. Rahul was participating in his first game following his injury recovery, and to be able to get a century under these circumstances was very amazing, he remarked.

“Virat Bhai obviously also reached his century and 13000 runs, demonstrating his immense motivation to all of us. The ball was moving around a little bit in the early going, and they bowled well with the new ball, but we needed to take them on and get rid of the bad deliveries to put the pressure back on them.

“I believe Shaheen was attempting to attack the wickets, and I wanted to demonstrate my purpose. Yesterday, it worked for me. There is some seam movement, and as the ball ages, we must vary it up with slower shots. I found it challenging when they switched up their length and speed.
