Shikhar Dhawan confident of another great ICC tournament
Another ICC event is knocking at the door and Indian fans are hoping to see another Shikhar Dhawan show. When it comes to any ICC tournament, Dhawan has been in sublime form since his debut.
From ICC Champions Trophy 2013 to ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Dhawan played three ICC tournaments and he played superbly in all of the tournaments. Even he was the highest run-scorer in Champions Trophy 2013 and 2017. And the 5th highest run-getter in ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
Dhawan scored 363 runs in just 5 matches in 2013 at the strike rate of 101.39 averaging a huge 90.75, in fact the second highest-run scorer Jonathan Trott was 124 runs behind him. He continued his good form in the next ICC event World Cup and gathered 412 runs with the average of 51.50. And in the last ICC tournament, he scored 338 runs in 5 matches at an average of 67.60 in England.
And another positive thing is, the next World Cup is also scheduled in England where he topped the batting list in Champions Trophy 2017. Also in 17 ODI innings in England, he has made 976 runs at 65.06 and a strike-rate of 101.03, with three hundreds and four fifties.
“People tell me concerning my record in ICC occasions, yet honestly, the aim has dependably been the same. It’s not that the exertion is under 100% ever,” Dhawan said. “The focus, as usual, is on the procedure. I am sure that I will have another great ICC competition.”
“My passion is as yet equivalent to it was the point at which I began. I have closed out antagonism, basically in light of the fact that I am a joyful person.
“Before I made my Test debut, I had played about nine years of first-class cricket. Had I not been enthusiastic and hungry, I couldn’t have performed for India following nine years of domestic cricket. Presently, I have played six years of international cricket. It has been an incredible journey,” he added.
Dhawan had been in outstanding form in recent also. He scored 521 runs in 16 matches for his franchise Delhi Capitals and the fourth highest run-scorer in this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL).
India will begin their World Cup this year against South Africa on June 5 in Southampton.
