Successful Teams after 2019 WC in ODIs: Each team wants a good opening partnership and they rely heavily on that in all three formats.
Every cricketing country has produced the best opening batters of the white ball and red ball cricket formats.
The teams have done well when their openers contribute significantly to the game. Whether it is T20 Internationals, One-Day International match, or the Test format, a solid opening stand is a must for every team.
The opening partnership is vital to win the match because it sets a platform for the middle-order batters to come good.
The openers have the calibre and the expertise to make most of the new ball in the powerplay overs.
They need to negotiate the early swing, moisture, and seam from the wicket which would help the other batters cash in the lost opportunities presented by the opposition's bowlers.
The men in blue side have produced the greatest opening batters of the gentlemen’s game.
In the previous generation, the Blues had Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, and so on.
In this modern-day game, Rohit Sharma, the current Indian skipper has been the best for the team in all three formats.
We all know that Rohit Sharma started his career as a middle-order batter. But he wasn’t successful or consistent in that position.
It was Mahendra Singh Dhoni who promoted Rohit as the opening batsman in the fifty overs format and since then his career has taken a U-turn. He is known as India’s Hit Man now.
The current skipper of the men in blue side also had a glorious 2019 world cup, which was played in England and Wales.
Rohit Sharma scored the highest number of runs for India in that fifty overs tournament and slammed the most centuries.
Today we shall mention the list of the teams who have had the best opening partnerships in the one-day international format since the world cup of 2019.
