Former Australian World Cup winning captain, Michael Clarke rated the Indian opening batsman as the best opening batsman in the world at the moment. Michael Clarke said while talking to India Today, “Right now, he is batting unbelievably. And to think back that there was so much of talk about his form coming back into this World Cup.
He didn’t have the best of the IPL as he has had in the past. But again, he has shown how important his leadership is. And I think that is underrated as well, he is the vice-captain of the side. I loved it when in his first opportunity to stand up for India, he did that as he made a hundred. And against Pakistan, he was in unbelievable form. There is no doubt in my opinion that he is the number one opener in the world”.
