Indian cricket team’s opener batsman Shikhar Dhawan’s international cricket career is almost at its final stage. These days he is playing for India only in ODI format.

He was away from the Test team for a long time and now he is not being given a constant chance in the T20I cricket team as well. However, his utility for ODI cricket remains and most recently he captained the Indian ODI team against the West Indies and India won 3–0.

Shikhar Dhawan’s performance and his fitness are still excellent and this was also seen in the West Indies. He played very good innings as a captain as well as a batsman.

Now Dhawan will also captain Team India in the three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe. Although it is too early to say whether Dhawan will be a part of the team in the ODI World Cup 2023 to be held in India, but the way he is being given a place in the ODI team and is getting the responsibilities, it seems that maybe he will play and get a chance.

Shikhar Dhawan while talking to an English newspaper said about his career that as long as I am playing for India, I want to be an asset for the team and not a liability. I am a calm, mature person and my performance is a reflection of my experience. My basics are very strong and I have worked hard to improve my technique. Understanding a format is also very important. I understand the dynamics of ODI cricket, and that has helped me a lot. He said that I play in one format at intervals of two or three months and it helps me to stay fresh.

Because of this gap, I get time to work on my game as well as work on my fitness. , I want to be an asset for the team and not a liability. I am a calm, mature person and my performance is a reflection of my experience.
