India’s southpaw batsman Shikhar Dhawan wants to give his best effort to win the ongoing Asia Cup. Dhawan has been in fine form in the tournament. In fact, the left-hander was not in the best of forms in the recently concluded England tour. However, he was able to hit the ground running in the white ball version. Shikhar Dhawan is also the vice-captain in the ongoing competition.

Dhawan scored a fine hundred in the first match against Hong Kong as he scored a majestic 127 off just 120 balls. The left-hander was able to provide a good platform to the Indian side in their first match.

Meanwhile, Dhawan also scored a vital 46 against Pakistan to give a good start to the side. On the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan also took the trending Break the Beard challenge.

Dhawan took to Twitter to post the video of the challenge. He told Virender Sehwag that Team India will try to give their best to win the Asia Cup.

Meanwhile, India was able to win both their group stages matches. Men in Blue had to sweat hard in the match against Hong Kong in which they won by 26 runs. On the other hand, Rohit Sharma-led side won convincingly against arch-rivals Pakistan by eight wickets.

India was able to skittle out Pakistan for a paltry 162 runs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kedar Jadhav were the chief destroyers of the Pakistan line-up as they scalped three wickets each.

Rohit Sharma led from the front as he scored a fine fifty. Meanwhile, Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik scored 31 runs each to help India achieve a comfortable win.

Shikhar Dhawan took to his Twitter account to share his thoughts. His post read as, “Sahi Farmaaya @virendersehwag Bhai. Poori Koshish Lagaa Dengey Asia Cup ki jeet mMein. Filhaal Asia Cup Mein Yeh Mera solid Punjabi tadka. Kyunki boundary toh sirf gabru break karega!!

Here is Dhawan’s post:
