Shikhar Dhawan was a bit off the radar in the recent times. Eventually, he got ousted out from the Test team and also hasn’t had a great series so far against the Windies. Shikhar Dhawan got the decent starts in the series but unfortunately, failed to carry on with the flow. Meanwhile, he speaks on Prithvi Shaw, who took away his place in Test series.

Recently, Shikhar Dhawan alongside his wife, Aesha Dhawan started a new venture named, DA One Home. In a promotional show of his new business, he caught up with The Quint, where he spoke on his place in Test cricket.

Prithvi Shaw played well – Shikhar Dhawan

During the interview, Shikhar Dhawan was asked to make some words on Prithvi Shaw, who has replaced the southpaw in the Test format of the game. Answering the query, Shikhar Dhawan spoke very highly about the youngster.

The flamboyant batsman quoted it is a great deal to play for India at the age of 18 years. He feels the youngster utilised the opportunity brilliantly to score a century on his debut game as well.

”He is a great talent and it is a very big thing to play for India at the age of 18, and at the same time, doing so well in his Test debut. I wish him luck. To play for India at the age of 18 is a very big deal,” he said.

“Not just me, there are so many players who get to play for India at 25 or 26 but he made his debut at 18 and also scored a century. It’s a very big deal,” Dhawan added to his lines.

However, as Dhawan said, Prithvi Shaw is a great talent in the Indian cricket and born to do big things. Meanwhile, it is also great to hear high praises from Dhawan without any disappointment of losing his place.
