India’s explosive opener Shikhar Dhawan said that he and Rohit Sharma just not want to emulate the success of India’s successful opener Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar but surpass their success. “Me and Rohit have been opening for a long time. We understand each other very well, we know each other’s nature very well. I know what he likes to do in the middle. We are quite comfortable. We both have a lot of strokes so if he plays fast I can play the role of rotating the strike,” Dhawan said in the open media session ahead of the team’s departure for the Asia Cup in Bangladesh.

Sachin and Sourav have been successful openers for India. Both Sachin and Sourav have contributed as openers and led to India to many big wins in the past. “The way Sachin and Sourav had a long career in the opening, we can also have that in time. Maybe we can break more records. It’s surely going to benefit both of us as well as the country,” he added.

Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have been excellent openers. “It’s a journey, getting more experience and mature with time. With time, I know my game better. In bad patches, I tried to stick to those things. I believe in my abilities,” he added. “I was enjoying the flow.  My instincts had taken over my mindset and it worked for me. I feel it’s a balance of both,” he said.

Both Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have been in excellent scoring runs in the T20 series against Sri Lanka and Australia. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have been opening for India in the last 3 years. Both openers are attacking. Rohit Sharma since opening has never looked back and Dhawan has made a contribution to the team.

“It’s a big thing to share the dressing room wish great players. I’m enjoying this moment a lot. I am excited to play and will try my best in all three departments,” he said.

Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly has scored 6609 runs at an average of 49.32 in 136 innings, while Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan has scored 2450 runs at an average of 46.22 in 54 innings.
