Shubman Gill, who remained unbeaten in India's chase in the second ODI against New Zealand, was ecstatic after the home team clinched yet another white-ball series on Saturday.

After India's convincing 8-wicket win, Gill shed light on his partnership with skipper Rohit Sharma, stating that he has learned a lot from his opening partner.

"It was a good opportunity for me to stay unbeaten in the middle. There was a little in it for the fast bowlers in the second innings, thought there would be more when we saw them bat, but there wasn't a lot when we batted," Shubman Gill said in the post-match presentation ceremony.

"But it was turning and gripping for the spinners. It's always a dream to bat with Rohit bhai, have learned a lot of batting along with him. Me and Ishan Kishan) are best mates, we spend a lot of time off-field together, it was great to spend some time batting together," Gill opened up on his equation with Rohit and Ishan Kishan.

Talking about the game, New Zealand were bundled out for a mere 108, which turned out to be a cakewalk for the home team. Gill and Rohit added yet another 50 plus run partnership and the former remained unbeaten on 40 as India won the game easily.

The final game of the series will be played in Indore on Tuesday.
