Of late, Shikhar Dhawan’s form has been a major concern for the Indian team, he had a tough time during the tour of West Indies as he scrambled to gather runs. But during the second T20I match against South Africa in Mohali, Dhawan manifested signs of return to form.
Shikhar Dhawan knocked 40 runs off 31 deliveries and built a great stand along with Virat Kohli, the southpaw was dismissed following a sublime catch from David Miller. And when Shikhar Dhawan returns to play in the third T20I against South Africa in Banglore on Sunday, he could join Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in elite T20 list.
The Southpaw who has amassed 6,996 runs in T20 cricket needs just four runs to complete 7,000 runs and if he dose so, he will become the fourth Indian to attain the landmark in T20s after Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina.
All-inclusive, Shikhar Dhawan will be the 15th cricketer to go pass 7,000 runs in T20s.
