Dhawan made a big comeback

In the T20 series against England, Dhawan was sacked early in the first game, after which he had to stay out of the squad throughout the series. In the first game of the ODI series he was given another chance and with a surprise right away he explained to everyone why he is counted among the best workers in the world. Dhawan played a brilliant 98-point, 106-ball inning in this game. Although Dhawan missed his century, he nonetheless laid the groundwork for India’s victory.
Dhawan said a great thing
Dhawan (Shikhar Dhawan) said in the post-match press conference: “ There is always pressure in international cricket and the good thing is that being an experienced player I know how to handle that pressure well and the other thing is that experienced players. If I am, I know what kind of move to play on a wicket, we can read the wicket well and say it well in the punch unit. This is what we did and it worked for us as well. He said, “Of course when I got into the compound I had enough shots to play to be able to score points.”
Stayed positive in the T20 series as well
After being kicked out of the T20 squad only after the first game, Dhawan said he remained positive. He said, “When I wasn’t playing in the T20 series, I stayed positive. I continued to focus on my process, my fitness, my workout at the gym and stayed positive. I try to stay positive in every situation. This is what I was doing. I was working on my stick. I knew that if I had a chance, I would take it.
