While the Indian team had to face defeat in the first two matches of the 5-match Test series against England, in the second match, Team India made a comeback and leveled the series at 1-1. However, in both these matches, better than expected performance could not be seen from the batsmen of the Indian team. In both the first matches, Team India captain Rohit Sharma’s bat was completely silent and he could not even score 50 runs even once. Whereas Yashasvi Jaiswal and his opening pair have been able to make 50 plus partnership only once in four innings.

Yashasvi and Rohit pair have not shown performance as per expectation till now

In the two matches held so far in this Test series, in the first match, Rohit and Yashasvi scored 80 and 42 runs respectively, while in the second match, they managed to add 40 and 29 runs in both the innings. While Yashasvi managed to score a half-century in the first match and a double century in the second match, but Rohit’s highest score in both these matches was 39 runs, which he scored in the second innings of the Hyderabad Test match. . In such a situation, if Team India has to perform better in the remaining matches of the series, then the pair of Rohit and Yashasvi will have to give a big start to the team.

Third most successful opening pair so far after the year 2023

Even though the opening pair of Rohit and Yashasvi have not been able to perform well in this Test series against England, but since 2023, both have been the third most successful opening pair in the Test format. Both have added 736 runs in 11 innings at an average of 66.9, in which century partnerships have also been seen twice. At the first place in this list is the pair of Usman Khawaja and David Warner, who have scored 838 runs in 22 innings at an average of 38.09 and have also made century partnerships twice.
