Shikhar Dhawan & Rohit Sharma become 2nd most successful opening pair for India in ODIs

India openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan have been one of the reasons that the team has been a force to reckon with in the ODI format in recent times.

While the two have complemented each other really well at the top of the innings, they are now also the second most successful opening pair for the Men in Blue behind Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly. Needing five runs to overtake Virender Sehwag and Tendulkar — 3919 runs in 93 innings — the duo reached the milestone when Rohit collected a leg-bye in the opening over of the fourth ODI against West Indies at the Brabourne Stadium on Monday.

With the single, the duo of Rohit and Dhawan now have 3920 runs from 87 innings at an average of 46.11. Their best partnership stands at 210. They need another 2689 runs if they wish to match Tendulkar and Ganguly at the top. They managed to score 6609 runs in 136 innings at an average of 49.32 with a highest partnership of 258.
