Shikhar Dhawan, one of India’s successful openers, on Thursday explained the reason why his pairing with fellow batsman Rohit Sharma has been a hit so far. Dhawan said that all this has been possible because we both trust each other a lot. Dhawan has said that he and Rohit trust each other on the field and run for runs, but sometimes we also make mistakes. In limited overs cricket, Rohit-Dhawan pair is second in terms of maximum century partnership. They have 16 century partnerships so far. In this case, he has equaled Australia’s legendary players Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden.
If we talk about the highest century partnership, then it is the pair of India’s master blaster Sachin Tendulkar and former captain Sourav Ganguly. These two players have played the most 21 century partnership in ODI cricket, which is a world record. Chatting with IPL franchise Delhi Capitals on Instagram, Dhawan said, “I know Rohit Sharma from the time we used to play under-19 cricket.” He was a year or two junior to me and we attended the camp together. We trust each other so that we can form a big partnership.
Dhawan further said that I feel proud that we have done something good for India. Shikhar of 34 years has also said that the chemistry outside the field is also useful for him. He said that when there is chemistry with each other, it brings positive energy and vibes for you. Whenever I have a problem with my batting, I ask him. There is a strong communication going on in our midst. We travel together 230 days a year. So the whole team India is a big family. Shikhar Dhawan spent eight years in the IPL with Sunrisers Hyderabad but returned to his home team Delhi Capitals last year. During this time, his performance was very good. He scored 521 runs in 16 matches at an impressive average of 34.73.
