For a stable batting line-up, one of the factors that play a major role is a good opening pair. Spending a long time on field, the opening partners become habituated with each others style of play and habits. Sometimes they get in so much sync that they know by instinct what the other is going to do the next moment. This closeness results in a friendship off the field, one of the classic examples of it is the bond shared by Sourav Ganguly, the dada of cricket and Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, the master-blaster. Here are some pictures that depict their friendship-
