well according to me the best opening pair ever has to be greenidge and haynes . primarily becuase they exceled in both forms of the game , test and odi s . ganguly and sachin will come a close second inspite of their towering performances because they were never tested in test cricket .moreover haynes and greenidge laid the foundation of some of the historic matches that wi won and olso they have more century partnerships than any other combination .

I will put up for Tendulkar and Ganguly . They are the best opening combination india has ever had they have the experience and the technique . more over it becomes a left right combination which is much difficult to mandle by the bowler and the fielders . When it comes to test cricket Sehwag and Jaffer will put up a good opening combination one is aggresive and the other defencieve they can match to any situation . We are looking for more youngsters to come up and prove their talents .

well the best opening pair in the oneday cricket is sachin and saurav.....the advantage of this pair is that both are aggressive and stroke players...in limited overs cricket it is always good to have a left and right hand combination... this pair satisfies this also...they scored world record in opening wicket stand... sachin plays agressive shots at begining and ganguly smashes spinners in the slog overs...so this opening pair is the best i have seen in international cricket

According to me, we should try all the possibilities. In the chennai match, Robin uthapa played a class innings. So we should try all the youngsters before the World Cup. Sachin and Ganguly is the best pair, I agree. But recently both the players are not playing well and they are under tremendous pressure. We should give chance to youngsters and bring the best of them. In my opinion, bring the alternatives in action before the world cup. All the youngsters are capable to play to good innings like Robin Uthappa. My choice is Robin Uthappa and sachin/ganguly.
