    Tattooed family man: The other side of Shikhar Dhawan

    He loves twirling his moustache, sports tattoos on his
    bulging biceps, often comes to training riding customised
    Hayabusa bikes -- in a nutshell Shikhar Dhawan epitomised
    everything that was 'larger than life' in Delhi cricketing
    fraternity till Virat Kohli arrived.
    The left-hander is affectionately called “Gabbar” by his Delhi
    teammates for his hulk like body and enormous amount of
    power he packs in his shots.
    Normally, one finds established cricketers driving their
    sedans to the practice sessions but Dhawan would arrive at
    the Feroze Shah Kotla in his sleeveless vests and shorts
    riding a customised 1000cc motorbike.
    One remembers, a former Delhi stalwart who had played a
    few ODIs for India in the early 80's stunned when Dhawan
    once arrived on his 'mean machine'.
    “Beta yeh bike kitne ki khareedi apne?” the former player
    asked, and pat came the reply, “It's Rs 25 lakh.
    “Then why didn't you buy a Mercedes?” the dumbfound ex-
    cricketer again asked.
    “Woh bhi khareed lenge sir (I will buy that also sir),” a
    smiling Dhawan said non-challantly.
    Some termed he had a casual approach, whereas others
    thought that he had the ability to keep things simple,
    Dhawan has been the topic of discussion in Delhi's cricket
    circle for a number of years now.
    The 27-year-old Dhawan first came into limelight when he
    scored three centuries in the U-19 World Cup in Bangladesh
    way back in 2004. Some of his U-19 teammates like Suresh
    Raina, R P Singh, Dinesh Karthik all donned the national
    jersey much before and it became an agonising wait for the
    affable man.
    “We are happy that it has been a worthwhile wait,” said
    Shrestha Dhawan, his sister.
    His one-time teammate and now Delhi coach Vijay Dahiya
    would tell you that “one poor shot in 2010-11” Ranji season
    changed his approach.
    “Delhi needed 136 to win against Railways with a day and 10
    overs left. Shikhar played a rank bad shot and Delhi lost the
    match and failed to make it to the knock-out stages. He was
    criticised a lot. This year on a green-top at the Roshanara,
    Shikhar anchored a 270-run fourth innings chase with a
    matured knock,” Dahiya stated.
    Those who were present at the Roshanara on that day saw
    erstwhile coach Manoj Prabhakar losing his cool once
    Dhawan got out.
    “That shot was playing on my mind while batting against
    Maharashtra,” Dhawan had admitted after his knock against
    Maharashtra.
    Once a regular at the Page-3 parties, Dhawan has now
    turned into a devoted family man post his marriage to half
    Bengali-half British Aesha Mukherjee.
    If one had come for Delhi team's Ranji matches, one would
    find Mrs Dhawan arriving during post lunch session and sit
    quietly with a red baseball cap.
    There will be days when Dhawan would give her
    throwdowns after day's play as she would perfect her
    forward defensive stroke.
    His wife has two daughters from her earlier marriage and
    Dhawan is a proud dad.
    “My elder daughter was ecstatic when she heard about my
    selection in the Test side,” Dhawan had told then.
    Post Saturday, Dhawan has ensured that he will also be
    remembered for having played one of the most
    breathtaking innings in the Indian cricket's history.

    Dhawan's nickname amongst his peers is Jaat-jee, which comes from his Jaat heritage. The Jaats are a rural north Indian community, concentrated in Haryana and portions of western Uttar Pradesh, surrounding Delhi. Dhawan's distinctive and carefully maintained moustache owes some allegiance to that heritage. As he walked off the field at tea and then at stumps, he twirled his moustache upwards, in a somewhat old-fashioned but instantly-recognisable gesture of bragging-rights ownership.

    This jatt pride seems to have come just recently to him and changed him for good. Earlier he seemed lost. The Jatt attitude is refreshing and its showing in his game. Thin line between pure pride and arrogance, as long as he can use that to focus more on his game, work harder, its all good. Otherwise obviously it will be passed off as typical jatt swag with no substance.

    I hope he does well for India....still has 10 yrs of cricket left in him atleast..if he keeps playing..

    NO

    Dhawan is an aggressive batsman, hence there is a greater degree of him getting out in this process hence Misbah would not like to have a batsman of this sort in his playing XI

    I'm telling you know you will never see shezhad playing under Misbahs captaincy. He only made a comeback when Hafeez became captain. We still haven't been told why was he dropped shortly after making a ton, other then "non cricketing reasons". Oddly enough it concided with misbah becoming captain

    Lol at people claiming Hafeez can play such a knock. The 196 that Hafeez scored was against a Lankan attack that was worse than the one Raina scored his debut ton against. All Hafeez needs is some swing and he will be in the pavilion. Or maybe he needs some Steyn.

    His first 90 runs were risk free, very Ganguly sque. no attempt of a lofted shot. From where did this attitude come from?
    His technique will be the one under scrutiny NOT attitude or style.

    Ohh at least you managed this rant without bringing Tendulkar in the discussion and putting Hafeez over him as well. This is sad state of affairs to be honest. A bad bowling line-up is only exposed by a good performer. Some of your current lot have made North, Tsotsobe, Darren Sammy, Thisara Perera like bowlers look unplayable in past so you should be the last to ridicule these performances. It takes some doing for a debutant to smash records like that in half a day's batting. Learn to give credit where its due.

    Australian media hails " Cyclone Dhawan"

    Melbourne: The Australian media today were effusive in their praise for the magnificent unbeaten 185 by India`s debutant Shikhar Dhawan.
    The Daily Telegraph wrote,"On a remarkable day of action, Cyclone Dhawan hit world cricket with full force after clubbing the fastest century by a debutant in Test cricket`s 136-year history."
    The paper also wrote,"Australia`s grip on the Border-Gavaskar trophy is effectively gone after Indian debutant Shikhar Dhawan went berserk to makehistory and leave the tourists on the canvas in the third Test."
    The Australian wrote,"Scientists seem certain the Hadron collider has discovered the God Particle, Indian cricket seems to have found its own in debut centurion Shikhar Dhawan. This 27-year-old high energy particle accelerator has blasted his way into the game with the fastest Test 100 on debut."
    The popular Sydney Morning Herald termed the innings "awe-inspiring."
    "The 27-year-old`s 85-ball century in his first Test was an awe-inspiring andgag-inducing treat. Dhawan-ism, the biggest thing since cyclone Tracy, you get the picture.
    "The wordplay, however, did not do justice to the sheer quality and the audaciousness of this innings. Dhawan barely lofted a ball in the air but struck a remarkable 21 fours to all corners en route to three figures. With 84 per cent of his runs to that point, he was not required to move." http://zeenews.india.com/sports/cric...an_758172.html

    Yea this.

    Came here to say the same to Ambhi Mumbaikar before i saw the other rant. Those calling him the new Sehwag or a dasher probably haven't been following him AT ALL. Dhawan's game has no flashiness whatsoever, guy plays proper cricketing shots all around the wicket. Yes, he's not been that prolific and his defense and all is not that proven against quality bowling in tough conditions but thats a totally dif thing which applies to Pujara as much as it does to Dhawan.



    Actually when i was checking scores on my mobile and saw India hitting 150 in 30 overs, i thought it must have been Vijay doing the bulk of scoring because actually he's THE dasher! He's the one that is a Sehwag/Hayden wannabe. I was too pleased to know that Dhawan was the aggressor and Vijay was playing the supporting role once again. What a change, guy's matured big time. I am happy with Vijay actually just as much as i am with Dhawan, in fact more with Vijay because he's finally learnt the art of test battin. You don't always get to dictate terms, sometimes when the other guy's feeling it, just giving him the strike and play safe. Well done Vijay!!!!

    Ironically, Vijay has a better technique than Sehwag and is more suited to the opening spot.
    But we know who is more successful. Maybe things will get better for Vijay.

    I said Gangulysque but Ganguly always liked lofting spinners.
    Dhawan did that to full tosses and long hops while facing Smith only after his 100.

    Re: Would someone like Shikhar Dhawan ever Impress Misbah and get to Open for Pak?

    I agree Vijay has good defense but when he tries to be the "stylish" strokemaker, he loses his wicket. He nearly lost it when he almost ran past a Lyon off spinner. But luck was with him.

    Vijay is a gifted player. He's got class, timing, technique, strength and even the CSK factor going all in his favour. All he needs is to show the commitment and he can be a Hayden like free flowing batsman. No blind slogging non sense, no flashiness outside off for no reason. Just focus and play on merit. Vijay at his best will make this Shikhar Dhawan effort seem Misbahesque, guy can demolish everything at sight when in zone. lol This is why i am so pleased to see him playing supportive role, that tells me he's gotten over the confusion and is getting settled in his slot. Goshh i wanna see Vijay play a 100 tests, too much class.


    Ganguly had conversion problem, he was just fine everywhere. The slots are filling up fast, Rohit's probably getting out of the season. Rahane, Tiwari waiting as well, very very interesting times.

    I think its a genuine issue with a lot of high backlift classy players. Sometimes that fraction of a second delay in getting the bat down in the right place gets them lbw or an inside edge straight to stumps. I am sure he's already getting advices to work on that from qualified men surrounding him. Adjusting back lift to perfection has been the unknown hallmark of Tendulkar's game.

    Michael Clarke got out on duck. That too to none other than Sir Jaadu Jadeja. Nothing is free in kirkit, you get runs if you apply yourself and have the talent to do so.



    Also whats the issue with a lower order bowler hitting hundreds? Are you not proud of Imran's centuries? or Afridi's? or Hafeez's? or Malik's?

    Hafeez also scored 196 against SL on a road against Perera just last year.
    Yet, even after that he wasn't called a good Test Player because scoring against an average bowling lineup on a road does not Count.

    I think nearly all were expecting it, but Dhawan might have buried Sehwag's intl. career

    NEW DELHI: Shikhar Dhawan's attacking maiden Test ton may have made things difficult for axed opener Virender Sehwag.

    According to sources, the selection committee is inclined to give Dhawan a longer run in Tests, meaning Sehwag's way back could be hard. Even in the one-day international arena, Dhawan seems to be ahead in the pecking order following Saturday's knock.

    Sources in the Board of Control for Cricket in India ( BCCI) said apart from his bad form, Sehwag's attitude on the field was also a big reason why he had to make way for Dhawan. Sources revealed that the initial plan behind dropping Sehwag was to give him a "shock treatment" so he would improve on his shortcomings.

    "He had one setback after another and his reflexes are also slowing down. Also, he should have played domestic cricket to get used to his new spectacles," a source told TOI.

    The selectors, it is learnt, even suggested to Sehwag that he should play in the county circuit in England, but the batsman didn't seem interested. A source said: "What is the point of suggesting anything to him when there is no interest on his part to get back to form?"

    Selectors also felt that Sehwag showed no remorse after dropping catches. "There are occasions when he dropped a catch and started smiling . This is something which has been discussed in selection meetings," a source said, pointing out to the ego clashes between Sehwag and captain Dhoni.

    Things also look bleak for Gautam Gambhir, who too was dropped from the Test team recently. Gambhir, though, is in the limited-overs scheme of things. "Gambhir is still in the running for ODIs if he can score consistently," a source said.
