After the blockbuster auction of IPL 2022, all IPL franchises have finally collected all the components to their new team. Openers play a huge role in winning matches and providing teams a fantastic start, and there are several significant opening pairs that we can see this year.

For the upcoming season of IPL, Best opening pairs available for different teams are 

Shikhar Dhawan and Mayank Aggarwal for Punjab Kings, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan for Mumbai Indians, Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis for RCB, David Warner and Prithvi Shaw for Delhi Capitals, KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock for Lucknow, Venkatesh Iyer and Aaron Finch for KKR. 

KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock for LSG and Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma for Delhi are perhaps the greatest opening combos.


Most IPL teams struggled with this decision because they had a great group and close relationships with their players. You have the best opening combination in the world when you have KL Rahul, the best T20 opener in the world, alongside Quinton de Kock, Evin Lewis. With all three alternatives being valuable, there isn’t much of a gap in their opening combination.
