Shikhar Dhawan thanked the Almighty God for his Match-Winning knock against Pakistan. Dhawan scored his 15th ODI hundred to give a great platform to the Indian side. The southpaw batsman scored a blistering knock of 114 runs off just 100 balls to take India in close proximity to Pakistan’s total of 237 runs. Thus, it was a fine display of performance from the Indian left-handed opener.

Dhawan put together an exhibition of fine drives in his innings as he batted at the top of his game. The southpaw batsman added a gargantuan alliance of 210 runs with his opening partner and skipper Rohit Sharma. On the other hand, Rohit Sharma was also able to bring his 19th ODI hundred.

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma is also in fine touch with the bat. In fact, India has ticked the right boxes as they have been dominant in every aspect of the game. The bowlers have also done a great job as they have got rid of the opposition cheaply.

Shikhar Dhawan took to his Instagram handle to share his thought after the knock. Dhawan post read as, “Jitna Diya Sarkar ney Mujhko Utni meri Aukaat Nahi
Yeh Toh Karm Hain Unka Warna Mujh Mein to Aisi koi bat Nahi.???
