Shikhar Dhawan, Six Sports

Indian Men’s Cricket for the last few years have experienced the rise of many talented youngsters. Many of them proved themselves to be promising enough, whenever they got the chance. This bucket of talents has put the senior pack’s dominance in question. Keeping aside skipper Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, and the in-form Suryakumar Yadav, none of the spots are fixed for anyone in the team. Even the position of Virat Kohli has been questioned a number of times. With the workload pressure coming into the scene, Senior players are often rested. This made the door open for the youngsters. But Shikhar Dhawan has been exceptional among the senior players. The lefty despite being a regular one in the Indian ODI squad, he hardly can manage a spot in the T20 I set-up. For a long time, one is in not seen in Test cricket. However, Dhawan is totally chilled even being omitted from the squad. He believes, his time may not have come. Maybe he is lacking something to be prominent in the team. To the Sports talk, Dhawan said,

“To be honest. I don’t feel any disappointment as such. I feel that there is a time for everything and maybe it’s not my time. Maybe I lack something that I haven’t being able to do well. So worries, I give my best and that’s what matters. Till the time I am happy and content that is all I care about. It’s not like if my name doesn’t come, I will be affected or anything like that. I am in a good space; I’m doing my best.”

‘I try my best to perform.. Rest is up to the selectors’: Shikhar Dhawan

Recently Dhawan represented India against England very scored an impressive 50 in the first ODI. Not only that, but he also led India to seal the series against West Indies by 3-0. There he scored two half centuries. In the first innings, he missed his well-deserved century just by three runs. Dhawan will also be captaining India in the upcoming Zimbabwe series. However, time will if Dhawan can seal space in the Asia Cup 2022 squad. Nonetheless, Dhawan played a crucial role in scoring 320 runs to help India lift the 2018 Asia Cup.

Dhawan added,

“If the opportunity proves then why not? When I play the IPL, I try my best to perform. And if I do well there, I might get chances. Rest is up to the selectors… What their thought process is, what is their vision. Like I said, if it comes from a great, but even if it doesn’t format that’s also fine. I’m keeping myself fit and strong and whenever I get the opportunity, I’m ready for it.”
