Irfan Pathan Says The Secret Of Rohit And Shikhar Success As Opening Pair Is To Play According To Each Other Strong Side

Delhi,30,June,2020

 

The pair of star opener Shikhar Dhawan and limited overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma are counted among the most successful pairs in the current round. Former India bowler Irfan Pathan has given the reason behind this. Pathan said that the pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma is successful because both play according to each other's strong side.

 

 

This Indian opening pair has been batting brilliantly in limited overs cricket since 2013. Pathan said in Star Sports' Cricket Connected, '' We know that Shikhar plays very openly. He gives time to Rohit Sharma. We all know how Rohit Sharma is capable of taking a fast aggressive stance, but he needs time in the beginning.

 

 

Pathan said that both players know about each other's game and abilities and it makes a big difference. He said, 'In cricket you need someone at the other end to understand your strengths and weaknesses. Shikhar knows that Rohit needs a few overs in the beginning.
 

 

The 35-year-old former Pacer said, "At such a time, Shikhar takes responsibility and I think he is successful because of this." When the spinners come for the bowling, by the time Rohit is frozen at the crease and he takes all the responsibility from the summit.

 

 

Rohit and Shikhar have 16 century partnerships and are jointly second with Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden in this list. In the first place are the legendary Sachin Tendulkar and former captain Saurabh Ganguly, who have 21 century partnership in their name.
