Shikhar Dhawan: I have become a better batsman in last 8 months
Most batsmen reach a phase in their careers, where they would wish they could talk about maturing and coming of age. That’s exactly where the young and dynamic Indian batsman Shikhar Dhawan feels and very rightly so.
He believes to have found the consistency in his game that he had always yearned for and the stats back his claims as he finished as the 5th leading run scorer in the recently concluded world cup, where the defending champions failed to get past the semi-finals.
There were some minor flaws in his technique, on which he worked hard to rectify, especially at the test level. The results were evident when he got an opportunity on India’s tour to Bangladesh, where he took the place of Lokesh Rahul ,who missed the test due to illness and Shikhar grabbed that opportunity with both hands and amassed a 150 plus score in that drawn test match.
He followed that brilliant knock with another classy innings against Sri Lanka at Galle. Shikhar believes that temperament without a solid technique won’t suffice to be successful at the international stage.However his run with bat was cut short as he was ruled out after the first test match of the series against Sri Lanka as he sustaineda fracture while fielding on the first day itself.
The good news is that he is fit now and will lead India ‘A’ in 3-day match against Bangladesh ‘A’.
