Shikhar Dhawan, an Indian batsman, praised Rohit Sharma and claimed that the captain of his country and he have a close friendship. The two have long served as India’s opening partners in ODIs, and they have also amassed 5,000 runs together in the format. It was a “huge milestone” in their careers, according to Dhawan.
Dhawan and Rohit are now fifth on the list of ODI pairings with the most runs scored. The southpaw claimed that he and Rohit are aware of one another’s styles of play and constantly want to enhance one another.
It is a significant milestone for both of our careers, and nine years later, Dhawan told Times of India, “We have a really close bond and friendship.” We have been playing together for so long that we now fully understand one another’s game, and we constantly want to help one another in the goal or on the field.
Sharing an accomplishment with Rohit makes me happy: Together, Dhawan Dhawan and Rohit have scored 5,170 runs in 116 games, and they are currently 37 runs behind Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes, a former West Indian duo. The 36-year-old continued, “Rohit has been a terrific opening partner and to have a milestone that I share with Rohit is a happy feeling.
Beginning on August 18, Dhawan will participate in the forthcoming India tour of Zimbabwe for three one-day internationals. KL Rahul has been designated the series captain in Rohit’s absence as India named their 15-member team for the tour. Dhawan led the Indian squad during the last ODI series against the West Indies, which they won 3-0.
Rahul, the team’s vice-captain, has been sidelined with a groyne injury since mid-June. Rahul took over as captain after Rahul’s return from the Zimbabwe series, which had originally been assigned to Dhawan.
