Sunil Narine and Virender Sehwag would prove to be the most destructive opening pair in T20 history

Sunil Narine has risen in the batting ranks ever since he started opening the innings in T20 cricket as a pinch hitter. With the fielding team allowed to place only 2 fielders outside the 30 yards circle in the first six overs, pinch hitters like Narine get the maximum opportunity to cash in quick runs without much difficulty. The West Indian mystery spinner turned all-rounder deals majorly in boundaries in the mandatory powerplay.

Virender Sehwag was a man who was a proper batsman yet used to deal in boundaries in the entire phase he batted in, forget the first 6 overs. He scored runs at a rapid rate thanks to his boundary scoring abilities. This pair would have emerged as the most destructive opening pair in T20 history.
