England’s limited over Opener batsman, Jason Roy who has given terrific performance in the last year World Cup was asked in an interview to choose between Rohit Sharma & David Warner as the opening batsman he would like to open with, & in no time he opted for India’s one of the best opener batsman Rohit Sharma.
If the top Opening batsman in the world cricket is talked about then Rohit Sharma’s name should come at the top. Rohit has done everything that an opening batsman should do. He has scored double centuries in ODIs, a century in his first test Opener, the highest number of centuries in a World Cup Series which helped him to emerge as the leading run-getter of the year grabbing 1490 runs in 2019.
The second name would be David Warner. The fearless Australia Opener batsman is one of the best openers of the modern-day cricket. By scoring 5267 runs from 123 ODIs at an average of 45 overs, Warner is one of the most outstanding batsmen in the world. His opening partnership with Aaron Finch is the 10th most successful batsmen in the world & Warner & Finch together make for the most successful opening pair in ODIS with a whopping 3297 runs from 65 matches at an average of 51.51 with 10 century & 14 fifty partnerships.
Jason Roy was the hero of England’s World Cup Campaign scoring 443 runs from seven innings at an average of 63.28 with 104 half-centuries registered on his name. Even as Roy lost three big games sue to injury Roy attacked India with a whopping 66 followed with knocks of 60 against New Zealand & 85 against Australia in the second semi-finals of the World Cup 2019. In the finals he was able to contribute only 17 runs in England’s win but being a part of a historic moment for England was remarkable.
“Everything that I imagined about the WC final in my childhood, the match transcended every bit of it. Listening to people cheering you was the most insane feeling. Once we went to the ground, it felt like another game. I didn’t watch that game until a month ago when it was replayed on TV,” Roy said.
