The skipper shared a 154-run fifth wicket stand with Rahane and said batting with the Mumbaikar was more satisfying than his own knock of 88.
     
"I enjoy batting with him (Rahane). We had some really good partnerships in the past as well. What I like about him is that his intent is really good backed by solid technique, which is a rare balance. To find that balance early in the career is a commendable effort," Kohli, who was effusive in his praise for one of the superstars in the line-up, said.
     
For him, the stand with Rahane would now be an example of how to bat and wriggle out of crunch situations.
