Team India opener Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have won hearts all over their performances. The two have team India won several times.
Team India openers Rohit Sharma (Rohit Sharma) and Shikhar Dhawan have played a pivotal role in the team for quite some time now. Shikhar and Rohit’s superhit duo has been rocking the cricket field since 2013, which has led to a steady increase in the number of fans of the pair. Shikhar and Rohit have had 16 strategic partnerships in ODI cricket so far, making the duo second in the list of most strategic partnerships like Matthew Hayden (Matthew Hayden) and Adam Gilchrist. The duo of Hayden and Gilchrist also have 16 strategic partnerships. The first number is the pair of Sachin Tendulkar (Sachin Tendulkar) and Sourav Ganguly who have 21 strategic partnerships.
Now the brilliant pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have been highly praised by former Indian cricket all-rounder Irfan Pathan. In one of his interviews recently, Irfan talked about Rohit and Shikhar’s duo saying, “Everyone knows that Shikhar Dhawan plays very openly and gives time to Rohit. We also know how Rohit Sharma becomes absolutely aggressive, but rohit needs time at the outset to do so,” he said.
In addition, Irfan also said here that shikhar and Rohit’s interaction is very good, both of them know about each other’s abilities. It makes a lot of difference to how much your partner knows about your game. Pathan added, “You need a partner on the other side of the pitch to know about your strength as well as weakness in cricket, and shikhar dhawan knows that Rohit needs a few overs in the beginning. Shikhar takes responsibility for this and gives time to Rohit and that is why his pair are successful. Rohit has been on the field until the front team spinners arrive,” he said.
Well, let us tell you that just a while ago, Shikhar Dhawan himself talked about his and Rohit Sharma’s pair. During a live session on social media, Dhawan had said, “I know Rohit Sharma from the time we both played Under-19. We used to camp together. We trust each other since then and our friendship has been there. Trust and trust in each other is a great thing to do today. Whenever I have trouble batting, I ask Rohit and then we have a lot of talk in the middle of the game on the field. I and Rohit travel together for about 230 days a year.”
