Shikhar Dhawan who burst into the scene with a century against Australia on debut, is now a regular opener for India in all the three formats and Dhawan has credited his success to being able to deal with ‘inevitable failure’ in the future.

Dhawan said that though he is being credited as a successful batsman for India, he has seen more failures than successes and that he does not worry about form in the past and that being persistent and patient is what has bought him here.

Though Dhawan started his career with a dazzling 187 against Australia, he had some bad days since returning to the national team 2 years ago and Dhawan said that one needs to have the persistence power to deal with failures.

The 29-year old batsman who is having some days off with his wife and kids said that he was not planning too much into the future and that he is focusing series by series. He also emphasized the importance of being fit and having to play cricket all throughout the calendar year.

Dhwan who named Yuvraj as his idol said that he learnt a lot about how to hit the ball from him and that his team mate Cheteshwar Pujara has taught him a lot about temperament needed in big games. He added that Pujara is very stubborn and never gives his wicket away and that there is always a lot you can learn from teammates.
