The historic Eden Gardens has been a happy hunting ground for Rohit Sharma.
New Delhi: India opening batsman Rohit Sharma feels that the side's dominant run have been in the shortest format was because of contributions from all departments of the game.
India continued their winning run after beating West Indies in the ICC World Twenty20 warm-up encounter on Thursday at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
"We have done well in our last three tournaments and we are not winning just because of one department. We are winning because of our bowling, batting and fielding has been superb," Rohit said after India's 45-run win.
India have won 10 out of their last 11 Twenty20 international matches, winning three successive series -- against Australia, Sri Lanka and then the Asia Cup respectively.
Rohit smashed an unbeaten 98 runs against the Windies and continued his excellent form with the bat.
The historic Eden Gardens has been a happy hunting ground for Rohit Sharma. He has tasted success here after winning two IPL titles for Mumbai Indians (2013 and 2015) and also scoring a world record 264 (against Sri Lanka in November, 2014).
Rohit said that he loves coming and playing at the Eden Gardens.
"I love playing here. It's been happy hunting ground for me. Whatever cricket I've played here, it's the same. It's nice, I love coming here and playing. It's been good always but that does not mean I score always. I've to bat well to score runs and I was happy with the way it went for the team,” he said.
