Shikhar Dhawan is hopeful about Team India’s chances to win the ICC Cricket World 2019. Dhawan is the crucial player for team India in world cup 2019. India is highly dependent on the top three(Virat, and Dhawan) in recent times. These three have scored so many runs and break so many records in the last few years.
In a recent interview Shikhar Dhawan told how top three doing well for team India, he said
“We (Dhawan, Rohit, and Kohli) guys have been doing it (scoring runs) for five years now… We have scored so many centuries, broken so many records, so we have to go out there and do the same thing. I can understand that emotions are running high with the World Cup around the corner, but it’s the calmness and confidence that will win us matches,
Also he speaks about the team India’s world cup squad, he said “There have been times when we three (Rohit, Dhawan, and Kohli) haven’t scored runs but others like Kedar (Jadhav), Mahi Bhai (Dhoni), Hardik (Pandya), Vijay Shankar and we have KL (Rahul) as well, who put their hands up. We have got a very good side and are confident of doing well at the World Cup.”
currently, Shikhar Dhawan is playing in IPL for DC. His team(Delhi) has already qualified for the IPL 2019 Playoffs. So he spoke about the atmosphere of the team is very positive. Ricky pointing and Sourav Ganguly has played a vital role in the team success in this season.
Shikhar Dhawan said
“We played half our matches in Delhi where handling spinners are more difficult than here (Chepauk), so that should hold us in good stead. Our support staff, including the likes of Dada (Sourav Ganguly) and Ricky Ponting, has also played a key role in the team’s success this season.”
Delhi will try to finish in the top two in the points table to win their remaining two matches. About this Shikhar said “We have got a balanced side. It’s a clean slate; the boys are hungry. Any team with good Indian batsmen usually does well in the IPL. Shreyas (Iyer) and Rishabh Pant are young, but they know how to handle themselves in pressure situations. They are very mature and are only going to get better. I don’t see myself as a senior, we all communicate with each other, and that’s one good thing about our team.”
“When I am in the middle, I tell these guys things like ‘we can take it easy,’ and they do the same. We have to keep playing the same way because that’s what has worked for us. It’s just the tag ‘knockout’ that’s different, that’s all. Nothing changes, and we will back ourselves to do well today.”
When asked about Shreyas Iyer’s captaincy he said “He is a great leader, and the way he has handled himself is commendable. As a youngster, he doesn’t show any frustration on the field which sends a very strong message to the team. His bowling changes and fielding placements have worked for us too.”
Delhi capitals to play their next game against Chennai super kings today.
