The ICC has ranked the opening partnerships for each team as they get ready for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia. For the teams competing in the event, the starts will be critical.
The success of teams will be significantly influenced by the best opening pairings. Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam have been handed the top spot in international cricket by the governing board. In the shortest format, the two have scored more runs together than any other starting partnership.
The second-placed KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma will be important for India's chances of playing in Australia.
With their aggressive batting styles that work well with the slam-bang version, Devon Conway and Martin Guptill are third.
According to the ICC, the fourth-best opening partnership is made up of David Warner, a left-handed hitter, and Australian skipper Aaron Finch.
In the most recent edition, Warner was named Player of the Tournament, while Finch is known for hitting game-winning shots.Sri Lankans Kusal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka round out the top
