Shikhar Dhawan: I haven't forgotten how to bat

Broken finger, harmed neck, bruised eye and gushed knee, Shikhar Dhawan went through a painful 2019 but the India opener is prepared to establish a “fresh start” recalling one and all that his “class is not temporary” and he “has not recalled how to bat”.

Shikhar Dhawan, who is going through Delhi in their Ranji Trophy game, has returned. After recovering from knee damage sustained in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, which went through 25 stitches.

While he is returning to the Indian team, he recognizes that the road forward is slightly tricky with KL Rahul in an imperious way in white-ball cricket.

“This is a new start for me. I was damaged on the finger, after that on the neck, bruised eye and then harms on the knee. The nice news is New Year is arriving. I am not sad that KL has established so well. He has acquired the opportunity. So I am going to move and explain myself,” Dhawan informed a select group of reporters posts finishing his training edition here.

One does not have acquisition over injuries but the “happy go lucky” ‘Gabbar’, as he is nicely called, has never been afflicted by setbacks.

“Injuries are not artificial. You have got to agree that. It is fine and I do not create a huge fuss about it. The begin-halt thing does not affect me as I have not recalled how to bat. My class is not temporary and I will acquire runs.”

Dhawan does not decline that the Sri Lanka T20 series, from which Rohit Sharma is acquiring a break, will be crucial for him as all three (him, Rahul and Rohit) are available in rival to Australia.

“This is a crucial season. I would like to perform nicely in the T20s in rival to Sri Lanka but the choice is to support staff’s (team management) headache. They will go through their job and I will go through mine. Looking ahead to scoring huge runs.”
