The opening batsman of the Indian Cricket Team Rohit Sharma is very happy on the comparisons of his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan and him with the most successful ever opening pair of Saurav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar who added 6609 runs for India.
Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan have been opening together for last 3 years almost and they have started 54 innings togethers. They have had century partnerships 8 times and have added 2450 runs together. They have an average of 46.22 runs and 178 in their best partnership.
On the other hand Tendulkar and Ganguly opened 136 times together and had 21 century partnerships. Their average was more than Dhawan and Sharma as that was 49.32 with the highest partnership of 258 vs Kenya and they had two more double hundred partnerships.
Sharma said that he has not shown his best yet and he feels that it is yet to come. He said that he has scored 441 runs against Australia in the One-Day International (ODI) series that too away from home and his next target would be to score more than him.
The dynamic opening batsman has already scored two double centuries against Australia and Sri Lanka as he was the first and the only batsman to score 250 in a ODI game. He said that his target is to keep the momentum of the T20 team going as well, which whitewashed Australia.
