Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have had an incredible run as the new opening pair for India so far. Their success at the top was one of the key factors in India's victory in the recently-concluded ICC Champions Trophy 2013.

The question now is, are Dhawan and Sharma India's best opening pair.

It is tough to draw conclusions so soon as they have to beat competition from some of the best in the business. Sachin Tendulkar-Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar-Virender Sehwag and Virender Sehwag-Gautam Gambhir have done a fine job at the top of the order over the years with phenomenal success.
