Sunil Gavaskar was overjoyed by the 228-run victory of the Rohit Sharma-led team over Pakistan.

Sunil Gavaskar, a former captain of the Indian cricket team, was overjoyed with Monday’s 228-run victory over Pakistan in the Asia Cup Super 4 match, which was led by Rohit Sharma and his team. India’s score of 356 for 2 in 50 overs was led by Virat Kohli’s century and KL Rahul’s comeback century. Kuldeep Yadav took five wickets as Pakistan were knocked out for a meager 128 in their reply. Gavaskar compared India’s crushing victory over Pakistan to a laundry bay attendant violently thrashing dirty clothes.

Forget the largest triumph; we blasted them like you wash clothes in a dhobi ghat, puri tarah se dhula diya. A good team doesn’t worry about the score from the prior game. They can’t afford to waste mental energy worrying about it before the next game. “I don’t expect Pakistan to make such a mistake,” Gavaskar said on India Today.

While Rahul’s performance since May has quieted his critics, Jasprit Bumrah has been an equally formidable threat, especially with the new ball.

Gavaskar was relieved to see both Bumrah and Rahul fully recovered.

In addition to his century, KL Rahul kept wickets. Amidst the buzz surrounding his physical prowess, he made a bold proclamation. That he is physically fit was demonstrated. Also appearing rhythmic was Jasprit Bumrah. His run-up was smooth, and his swing was balanced. The great Babar Azam, one of the best batters in the world, had no chance against him, he said.

Kohli struck 122 not out without losing a single wicket, and Rahul 111 not out to proclaim his return with his sixth ODI century after the match was moved to the reserve day.

Kohli has reached 47 centuries in ODI play, putting him in second place behind India legend Sachin Tendulkar, who has 49 to his name.
