Lately, Shikhar Dhawan is going through a rough patch of his career. Dhawan has reportedly scored only 376 runs in 15 innings at an unremarkable average of 26.85 but the experts still have faith in him and they believe that the man is extremely talented and he just needs a different mindset.
Aakash Chopra, commented on Dhawan’s performance in a latest interview, he said: “There is no denying Dhawan is going through a bad patch but with only three international matches left, I don’t see any drastic changes happening, if he has scored 5000 plus ODI runs (5199 from 125 games), it means that he has been around for a reasonable period of time, seen ups and downs to have scored that many runs. His record in multi-nation tournaments (World Cup, Champions Trophy, Asia Cup) is fabulous, so it could well be a matter of time that he is back in form.”
Vijay Dahiya, who has played alongside Dhawan in first class cricket says: “I won’t say technique is a big issue here as the boundaries that he got were all in-front of the wicket. May be not on the off-side but those were not behind the stumps shots either, what he was trying to do was to score quickly and that’s what happened against Maxwell. He probably felt that since Maxwell is a part-time, he can score quickly and that’s why played that pull shot.”
Well, we have seen the man playing some brilliant knocks and we definitely want him to get back in action soon.
