SHIKHAR DHAWAN

LHB, ROS

ABC Cricket - - PROFILES -

The some­times Mel­bourne res­i­dent was late to in­ter­na­tional cricket, made to wait be­hind In­dia’s open­ing firm of Se­hwag and Gamb­hir. When Dhawan got his chance in 2013, he made it mem­o­rable – the Aussies at Mo­hali won’t for­get, as he made the fastest ton on de­but (85 balls) ever. He has come in for scru­tiny as a sym­bol of In­dia’s strug­gles away – Dhawan av­er­ages 25 in Eng­land, South Africa, NZ and Aus­tralia.
