The Indian cricket crew is evolving. The period of Virat Kohli on the helm is over. Rohit Sharma has about two extra years left in him.With the likes of Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sanju Samson, and Prithivi Shaw round, the second is not far when the Indian high order will put on a totally completely different look.
Amidst all of the hullabaloo surrounding the Kohlis, the Sharmas, and the thrill across the Kishans, and the Gaikwads, we have forgotten to rejoice the identical smile after 100 or dismissal, the trademark thigh slap, and an absolute legend of the sport who deserves the identical degree of appreciation, love, and acknowledgement, if no more.
We have forgotten to rejoice the ‘Gabbar’ of Indian cricket. The identify is Shikhar Dhawan
From the final seven IPL seasons, Dhawan has constantly scored greater than 450 runs. It consists of three 500+ runs seasons and one 600+ runs season. Take into account this, Shikhar is simply behind Virat Kohli within the all-time highest run-getters in IPL.
His worldwide numbers within the shortest format is probably not among the many finest, however he has performed his half in India’s technique to consolidate within the first half. Having scored 6284 runs in 149 matches, with 17 hundred and 35 fifties, the person is an unarguable legend within the ODI format.
Dhawan was main each white-ball sides throughout India’s tour to Sri Lanka final 12 months. He carried out fairly nicely within the first two T20s and obtained out on a golden duck within the third.
That was his final T20 match for India. Dravid has made it clear that Shikhar is not within the combine for the World Cup down-under. Even in spite of everything these years on the high of his sport, Dhawan is not actually Effectively, the time is not up for Dhawan on the highest degree simply but. We’ll see him within the blue jersey when the preparations begin for the ODI World Cup. The music is not over simply but.
Guessing by the way in which Dhawan re-invents himself on the ICC occasions, there are much more smiles, and thigh slaps left. And when he pulls off a Dhawan this time, let’s hope his identify is taken in the identical league as that of Kohli and Rohit. The Gabbar deserves it.
