Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma: The elite opening pair of India

India, throughout the course of history, has been blessed with a plethora of admirable batters. The batting powerhouse has also had the luxury of finest openers as the likes of Sourav Ganguly, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag helped India boss many bowling units.

The legacy was then carried forward by the class of Shikhar Dhawan and the aggression of Rohit Sharma, both of them formed the most prolific opening pair in modern-day cricket. Scoring a total of 4847 runs in ODI cricket, the duo has flexed its muscles by mustering 1743 runs in 52 T20I matches. With an elite record, they are second to none as no pair of active cricketers gathered more success than these two batters.

Having a sublime record batting as a pair, it is only natural to see both the cricketers possessing sensational individual numbers. While Rohit Sharma has over 14,000 runs in International cricket, Dhawan has 9,591 international runs to his name and inching close towards the iconic 10,000 marks.
