Rohit Sharma Can Be My Opening Partner From Another Country: Jason Roy
Indian Opener Sharma and Austrian starter David Warner are undoubtedly two of the best opening batsmen in the white-ball format in the modern cricket. Both of them very well know how to make the most of their starts in the limited-overs format that’s why the cricketers are the backbone of their national side’s batting line-up.
The two batters can make any team pay very heavily during the latter part of the innings that why the opposition camp often dwells hard on how to get rid of Rohit or Warner. While Rohit’s became a reliable opener in the side from 2013, his career continues to surge new heights. While Warner has been at his best in shorter formats and is known to be a player for the big occasions.
Rohit and Warner had a stellar run in the previous years. Although, Warner struggled in the Ashes 2019 but managed to made up for it with his run in the IPL 2019 edition. Besides he was consistent on ODI World Cup in England and Wales. While, Rohit led Mumbai Indians (MI) to their fourth IPL title, most by a franchise, and followed it with most runs (648) in the World Cup.
Therefore, it is difficult to choose one regarding the best modern-day opener come up among the two . In a recent interaction with Anis Sajan, England’s limited-overs opener Jason Roy was told to choose his opening partner from another country. His options were Rohit or Warner. The England batsman, however, made his choice clear and mentioned Rohit’s name.
