India's bold opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan is able to do the extraordinary by performing brilliantly at the Champions Trophy and the fans are overjoyed. Great players like Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir are not missed on field.
Star player Shikhar Dhawan has managed to fade out the genius of the top three Indian batsmen.
Tendulkar the world's topmost scorer and century-maker in both Tests and one-day cricket has retired from one-day and Twenty20 cricket but fans are jubiliant and celebrating the newcomers of Indian cricketers to show the way by Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja.
The left handed player from Delhi, Dhawan has succeeded the 8-nation tournament with powerful and continuous centuries that ensured a place for India in the World Cup Champions into the semi-finals.
Dhawan opened and hit a smashing 114 off 94 balls, with 12 boundaries and a six, in the opening match against South Africa.
The mustachioed player raided an unbeaten 102 off 107 balls against the West Indies in bad weather at the Oval on Tuesday, taking the massive three-figures with a six off Dwayne Bravo over third man.
Dhawan collected his third consecutive international century, with his stunning 187 off 174 balls against Australia on his Test Debut in Mohali in March.
Dhawan showcased his talent in 2004 during the under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh when he was named the player of the tournament after scoring 505 runs with three centuries.
Dhawan played first-class cricket for nine years under the shadow of his Delhi team-mates Sehwag and Gambhir, until luck finally smiled on him in March.
The man says he has spent many years in domestic cricket and was confident on my Test debut and words of encouragement from Sehwag, who asked him to stick to his strengths and helped him a great deal.
Dhawan truly loves not only to play but to enjoy watching his partner's batting and even running between the wickets and taking the pressure head on.
