Kannur Lokesh Rahul, commonly known as KL Rahul, is a top-order batsman and occasional wicket-keeper, he plays for India internationally, Karnataka in the domestic circuit and is the captain of Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League. He is seen in great form since past few matches with excellent keeping behind the stumps and scoring some remarkable runs. During the 2019 World Cup, after Shikhar Dhawan’s injury, Rahul had to get on the field as an opener alongside Rohit Sharma. He played very well in a few games and supported his partner Rohit to score really great runs.
On the other hand, we have Shikhar Dhawan, a left-handed opening batsman. He and Rohit Sharma have had some amazing partnerships. Shikhar Dhawan is known for his massive sixes. He is the first Indian batsman to score a century in his 100th ODI. Fondly known as Jaat-jee by teammates, this cricketer has had some match-winning innings alongside his opening partner Rohit Sharma.
We can’t decide as to who is the best Indian opener alongside Rohit Sharma as both these talented cricketers have made a great contribution to the teams win. Please help us pick one.
