Earlier ‘Master Blaster’, Sachin expressed his opinion related to the Indian batting order.
“I still don’t know what the team combination would be, but if you are going Rohit and Shikhar as openers, to Virat at No. 3 and whoever at No. 4 then Dhoni could be No. 5. Then Hardik Pandya, an explosive player, follows them.” told Sachin during an interview to ESPNcricinfo.
