Indian Opener Shikhar Dhawan feels that it is good for the Indian Team that there is a healthy competition for the opening slot in the team.
The left handed opening batsman is ready for the Srilankan Series Coming this month, he is ready to make the most out of the chances he get to perform for the Indian Team.
“I think it is a good thing for Indian cricket that there is so much competition for the opening slot. Players put in more effort because you can be kicked out if you don’t play well and make mistakes. I take it positively and try to ensure that I give my best,” Dhawan said at the press conference in Chennai on Sunday. “It (Sri Lanka series) is going to be a good series. They have also got a young side and we also don’t have a mature Test side, so it is going to be a good competition.”
Shikhar Dhawan said about new Indian Test Skipper Virat Kohli that he brings much aggression to the team which helps the team to boost up there morale and help them to perform better.
The opener olso said about the aggresive style of cricket in any format “In Test cricket now, you also need players who can score quickly, it has become very important because sometimes in second innings or first innings if you score quickly it helps the team. I have always been like that, so it doesn’t bother me. I just try to keep it simple. If I get a good delivery, I just defend it and If I get a loose ball then I hit it and make runs,” Dhawan said.
When asked of the srilankan tour he said “It depends on the wicket. If the wicket is turning, it will be difficult for the batsman to play the spinner. Then you have to be more careful. You can’t go and play your shots easily on a fast-bowling track also. You have to respect the bowler and every batsmen have their way of tackling the spinners.”
