However, India lost Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and Ambati Rayudu within the space of four overs.
“Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Sometimes, the opposition bowls well. This is a good learning experience for us, what to do in such situations,” said Rohit.
Chahal asked Rohit about what the plan was when MS Dhoni joined him at 4/3.
“When Dhoni came in, we planned to string a big partnership,” said Rohit.
Earlier, differing with his skipper Virat Kohli’s views, Rohit Sharma on Saturday said Mahendra Singh Dhoni is “ideal” for the number four slot, as the team works on getting the batting order right for the World Cup.
Rohit added it was his personal view and that the captain and the coach will have the final say on the batting slots.
Dhoni made a slow 51 from 96 balls in India’s 34-run defeat to Australia in the first ODI, sparking another debate about his current form in a World Cup year.
