Asia Cup 2016: Maybe Rohit Sharma & I can break more records than Sachin Tendulkar-Sourav Ganguly: Shikhar Dhawan

New Delhi: Before heading to Bangladesh for the forthcoming Asia Cup, Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan looked quite confident to continue his purple patch in Bangladesh.

Dhawan is looking forward to take his opening pair with Rohit Sharma to next level as he said that the duo can break more records than Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly, who are considered to be the best opening pair for India to date.

"Me and Rohit have been opening for a long time. We understand each other very well, we know each other's nature very well. I know what he likes to do in the middle. We are quite comfortable.

“”We both have a lot of strokes so if he plays fast I can play the role of rotating the strike," Dhawan was quoted as saying by the PTI.

Since the last tour of Australia, the opening pair have been giving India good starts up the order, which has helped India in a big way.

"The way Sachin and Sourav had a long Career in opening, we can also have that in time. Maybe we can break more records. It's surely going to benefit both of us as well as the country," he added.

Interestingly, few day back, Rohit had also spoken about emulating the success of the Tendulkar-Ganguly.

Dhawan is looking forward to continue his good form in the Asia Cup as well, which is scheduled to start from February 24 in Bangladesh.

"I am enjoying that I am scoring runs at the moment. Looking forward to continue in the same way and do better in Asia Cup. I want to continue stretching that good form till the time I can.

"It's a journey, getting more experience and mature with time. With time I am knowing my game better. In bad patches, I tried to stick to those things. I believe in my abilities," said the 30-year-old southpaw.
