Shikhar Dhawan is the kind of personality that one needs to turn to when the going gets tough, like it has these days. He is always wearing a smile and spreading positivity around himself. These are also the characters that play an intangible but crucial role in the dressing room.
Apart from being a fun loving chap, Shikhar has also been a phenomenal white ball opener for India and his record in ICC events is second to none. He is one player in the Indian team who can claim to hold his own in front of Virat and Rohit when it comes to performances in the past 2-3 years. Although the southpaw has lost his place in red ball cricket, he is still a vital cog in the Indian limited overs wheel.
He recently did an Instagram live with Irfan Pathan and the duo discussed various things in a freewheeling chat. The Delhi opener also opined that the IPL should definitely take place as it would bring positivity to the society. Irfan Pathan then asked him the toughest bowler he had faced so far in his career and Shikhar was quick to name Mitchell Starc.
