Default The contemporary style of Shikhar Dhawan




There is to Shikhar Dhawan's batting an utter bluntness. Every ball is a contest and he will take it on, muscling it past cover or through midwicket. There is, merely to illustrate it better, little of the finesse that so marked out another left-hander who made a dramatic entry into international cricket 17 years ago.
Sourav Ganguly came from the land of Ray and Tagore, of poetry and art-house cinema. He caressed the ball through cover, he square-drove, and even when he danced out to spin, it was with an air of nobility. When he sported a moustache, it belonged to an actor from black-and-white movies. You couldn't twirl it, it was just about there.

This guy has already made himself an ODI great. Though it'd be interesting to see how his test career spans out.

Averages are irrelevant when you've played just 1 innings. While he's got an extraordinary start to his test career, it'd be interesting to see how he fares over a span of say 50 tests, against difficult oppositions in difficult conditions.

I personally believe he can easily become a great batsman in tests also, as he seems to have a good technique against the short ball and also played seam well in the champions trophy.

if his domestic record is anything to go by he will be consistent, but harder said than done at international level especially when you grow up playing mainly on roads and then when you get selected you're expected to suddenly perform in bouncy, swinging, nipping conditions. although i questioned dhawan's selection at first i do have a good feeling about him.
