Mohammad Kaif SAID THIS About Shikhar Dhawan After 1st ODI

Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif has not shied away from praising opener Shikhar Dhawan for his recent innings against Zimbabwe. The veteran batter came up with a solid outing in the first ODI at the Harare Sports Club on Thursday. The 35-year-old played a stellar knock, scoring 81 runs from 113 balls at a strike rate of 71 against the hosts.

Dhawan also ended up recording a 192-run partnership with fellow opener Shubman Gill and ensured the Men in Blue register a 10 wicket win. The duo chased down the target of 190 runs with over 115 balls to spare helping the visitors take a 1-0 lead in the 3-match ODI series.

Speaking about Dhawan’s innings, Mohammad Kaif claimed how the 35-year-old is always under tremendous pressure to perform citing the emergence of various youngsters. He shared how there are a lot of solid batters in the current pool of openers looking to feature for the Men in Blue. The 41 year old also explained that poor performances from Dhawan could see the veteran lose his spot in the ODI setup of the national team.

The former Indian cricketer was heard on Sony Sports stating, “Shikhar Dhawan, who does not play all the formats and plays this format only, ask him how important this inning is for him. Every innings is like a war for him because so many players are waiting, if he does badly, then he will be out from here as well. But the guy is not giving a chance.”

“He is scoring runs whenever he is given an opportunity. He has scored 6500 ODI runs, which is not an easy task, he has had a very long journey. He showed his ability, that he is ready and has come here not to survive but to score runs and win matches,” Mohammad Kaif added.

The 41 year old cricketer went on to share how despite being under pressure, Dhawan knows how to make a strong comeback. He also goes on to reveal that the 35 year old has managed to get back to his best in West Indies after a poor outing against England.

Mohammad Kaif further claimed, “He did not have a good ODI tour of England. But as soon as he reached West Indies, he scored runs in every match. The ups and downs will be there, there were times in between when he didn’t score runs, but he knows how to make a comeback. Shikhar knows that if he has to stay here, he has to score in every match. The selectors are giving opportunities to young players, so the pressure is always there on him. He played a very good knock today. Shikhar Dhawan is ticking all the boxes.”
