Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan joined hands to produce a 210-run partnership for the opening wicket, and both the openers scored a hundred as well. Shikhar Dhawan was the only wicket to fall that day. The left-handed batsman scored 114 off 100 balls. Rohit Sharma, on the other hand, remained not out on 111.
India is currently in sublime form in this format. The team defeated England on their home soil and then traveled to West Indies. They currently lead the five-match series 2-1. Both the series had helped the Indian team to provide ample amount of opportunities for the youngsters. Asia Cup will also act as the preparatory series for the upcoming T20 World Cup later this year.

The team will now play the Netherlands in the three-match ODI series which will start on August 16th. Pakistan is the only team to announce the squad for the Asia Cup.
