If there is a topic regarding the best person to enjoy the time on and off the field, one of the first names on the list will be of Shikhar Dhawan. The Delhi cricketer has always been a special player for the Indian National Cricket Team and comes well whenever the team require him. Meanwhile, he speaks on the upcoming ICC T20I World Cup 2020 and his preparation.
Dhawan has not had a big score to his name ever since he came back from a thumb injury that ruled him out of the World Cup in the middle of the showpiece event. In the recent T20 series against Bangladesh, Dhawan laboured to 41 off 42 balls, raising questions about his form and strike rate. The left-hander acknowledged that he could have been more aggressive in that game.
However, he would certainly be there for the Indian team when they head to Australia for ICC T20I World Cup 2020. Shikhar Dhawan has always been a big-match player, especially, in ICC Tournaments, where he often been the highest run-scorer for India.
I have certain roles in the T20I side – Shikhar Dhawan
Speaking of the same, Shikhar Dhawan quoted that scoring runs in the World Cup is just destiny. Further, he went on to add saying that he was given a few responsibilities to do, which he would like to do before the World Cup arrives at the International Schedule.
“It’s all about destiny I guess. I never prepare differently for an ICC tournament but it just so happens that I score big. See I have certain roles in the T20I side. Have been practising hard in trying to perform that. Hopefully, by the time T20 world cup comes, everything falls into place,” Shikhar Dhawan said to Hindustan Times.
“I don’t think there are issues in T20Is. If you observe, I have been scoring well in the last few matches against South Africa and Bangladesh. Yes, I was a bit slow in the Delhi T20I. But that’s because I tried to bat differently because of the pitch. I know, 50 off 43 balls would have been a lot better than the 40 odd I got but yeah, I learnt,” he added.
Well, Shikhar Dhawan has always been a massive player for India. Most probably, he would like to enhance skills ahead of the tournament by performing the role to his perfection.
