His inning was a great example of resistance, timing, and courage. He played one best inning when his team needed him. For his 50 he took 72 balls. His innings included 5 fours. The strike rate was 68+ which was a bit on the lower side. But according to the situation, it is a good strike rate. 

At the moment, India is on 114 in 27.4 overs. They are cruising along to chase down this target. But they need to chase it down quickly to improve their run rate which will come into paly later on. Rahul and Kohli made a 100-run partnership too. A good stand for India. They are in the driving seat now after a disastrous start with 3 for 2.
