He said when asked about the changed in the batting order that when Rahane bat up the order it just looks a perfect site for chasing as Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Rahane and Virat Kohli can give a descent start to the innings and then says to look at the team which comes after it. M.S Dhoni himself at 5 then comes Raina at no 6 who can bat very well in such situations as he has loads of experience and power behind him hence it looks a very settled line up which he says was the main reason by Rahane was promoted up the order.
