Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan said his short selection is now improved a lot. Dhawan in his short 13 Test career, has been dismissed between 10 and 40 no less than 13 times in 25 innings. He records four hundreds so far, he could have scored more, but his hard fought innings derailed in the middle of the innings for his bad short selection.

After notching up his second conscutive century and first in Sri Lanka on Thursday Dhawan saidd he was now trying his best to rectify his glithces.

“I feel that my shot selection has gotten better so that’s why I am not getting out for 20s and 30s now. I am not giving more chances to the opposition and that’s made a major difference in my batting,” Dhawan said after his brilliant 134-run knock.

Dhawan’s first Sri Lanka series started off well. In the warm up match he has scored a perfect 62 against Sri Lanka Board President’s XI in Colombo and followed it up with a ton.

“When we arrived here and played a practice game in Colombo, we practiced the sweeps and stepping out,” he said. “It is a turning track here in Galle, so we had to make sure that we don’t let the bowlers bowl on the same line and length. That’s what we did as a batting unit with the help of Sanjay (Bangar) and other support staff. That’s how we got used to the conditions.

“It’s a great feeling to bat with Virat,” said the 29-year-old. “He is one of the best batsmen in the world and you feel at ease when such a batsman comes in. You know that he is taking control of everything and you can relax. Virat is also aggressive, so runs keeps on coming from his bat, which allows me to bat a little freely.”
