    Was a top inning today. It was not an easy wicket to bat on & definitely not the phatta wicket one comes to expect in India. Yet, he scored with such ease without taking any risk & & scoring @ SR of 130 goes to show how easy batting comes to him. Certainly the Top dog.

    He is definately no Sehwag. Atleast not yet. The swagger & arrogance that Sehwag used to display while batting was simply un-paralleled during his time.

    Early days yet, but failing his test so far. Not so much in the low scores but in the way he batted and got out - shows lack of judgment. At least play some defensive shots to get the measure of the pitch before going for front foot slogs.

    Haas to be one of the most bitter and judgemental analysts out there, Daryl Cullinan.

    I would have reminded him of his misery against quality spin , especially Shane Warne if i was there. Dhawan's hardly played any test cricket outside India. He'll take time, you can't just get into the groove without any exposure. Ponting failed in Indian tests in his whole career, was he also a bouncy track bully?

    The most difficult cricketing jobs for a SC player in countries like SA are as a) test opening b) spin bowling. These two kinds of players must not be too harshly judged based on their initial tours because it is very tough to adapt. Of course, repeated failure over years does not do any good to the player.

    Dhawan at least looked solid for the 20-30 runs he is scoring. One rash shot against short ball and the guy is throwing it away.

    Dhawan wil surely shine with enough exposure.

    Sure because comparing someone who has scored hundreds of runs all over the world against all attacks with a FTB like Dhawan is a very bright comparison.

    Sorry but he's rubbish. His honeymoon period is over.

    Has nothing to his game apart from a few flashy pulls and cuts. Very easy to work out for any quality bowler.

    He did in 2013 what Jamshed did in 2012, have a purple patch and mislead people that you are actually good.

    Both are garbage.

    He was actually struggling a lot during the A tour to WI. His scores then were 9(37), 13(40), 0(2), 8(8) - 30 off 87 balls in 4 innings. He was dropped for the third match. He was not selected for the A tour to NZ a few months later. So he essentially made the Indian team on the back of domestic performances (and possibly the IPL too). It would be a challenge for him to show that he has the mettle to play outside the SC. At the moment he appears to be a poor man's Sehwag (Sehwag after 2011)! I think he will get back to form once he gets back to the SC.

    His century in the first test was a fluke like most of his other innings as he got some chances.

    This 98 was better.

    Still think he isn't going to be a good opener outside Asia, Vijay is better technically and temperament wise as well.

    To be fair, Watson was sledging him too.

    Agreed, that was a bit over the top but Watson hardly gets along with anyone.

    I would reserve my judgement on his character for a bit

    As a player, great for SC but not sure abroad.

    But better than Rohit Sachin Tendulkar Sharma.

    His celebrations are OTT too, just compare it to the way Rahane celebrates his maiden 100 an innings which Dhawan can only dream of playing without being dropped at least thrice.

    The by that logic, Kohli is the world's biggest tool.

    Not defending Dhawan but celebrations can't be used as a way to judge.

    Maybe he gives off the vibe of being a tool, that I can understand.

    If he can average 40, India would be more than happy to have him in the side. We have not had a stable opener averaging in high 40s since the 80s, except for Gavaskar and Sehwag.

    Dhawan is set to be the quickest Indian to 2000 odi runs.

    http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/con...ds/283153.html

    I wonder if he can maintain this form and take it to the World Cup?

    11 to go then.

    He's played 49 matches. Amla did in 40 and Tendulkar took 70+ matches to get there. Poor teenage player he was.

    Is Dhawan's test career over? Or at least on hold?

    He had a productive tour of New Zealand (averaged 53.75) but since then he averaged 20.33 in the test series against England (played 3 tests) and 28.83 vs Australia (again 3 tests).

    Vijay's position will be his for a while and with Rahul's century today I think the latter should keep his spot for the next test.

    He'd walk into our team and be our best opener, yet he is not deemed good enough for India. Sums up how far behind we are lagging at the moment.

    Of course he would walk into pakistani team but there is no need to bring in Pakistan to derail the thread. By indian standard he is struggling. They must be missing combo of Gambhir and Sehwag.

    Gun opener!

    One of the best ever, averages around 45 with a SR of 90.
    Play "Clutch" innings chasing big scores unlike Amla who hasn't done it in pressure situation.

    Well, he seems to be holding onto his spot for a while. Clearly shows there is not much competition for the opener's slot in India. India has plenty of middle over bats, but opening weakness has persisted ever since Sehwag and Gambhir went out of favour. This is also one of the reasons India is not a favourite for this WC.

    Plenty of midle order bats? Then why are you still playing players like Rayudu? Or Under 30 average batsman?

    I think he's more than good enough for most teams, but teams like Australia, England, South Africa and NZ will surely test him - bowlers who have new ball skills.

    No idea! You have to ask Dhoni and the selectors.

    Form is temporary, class is permanent, Dhawan will bounce back before the WC. He was one of the reasons why India won the Champions Trophy.

    For 2/3 overs only, and he hardly swings the ball.

    Unless he can regularly take wickets up front, there is no use of playing him because he's passenger later in the innings.

    The hardest top order batsman to dismiss is Amla and he got him so many times. The only bowler capable of getting such a big wicket early on so constitantly.

    Hack but a good hack. Needs to bat 10 overs before attacking in bouncier tracks like the Gabba. Dont thnk Dhawan has the patience to do that. Gabba likr tracks becomes easy for batting after 10-20 overs. Indian team never learns

    Or he'll be lambasted by you for being a typical Pakistani opener that deserves to be dropped forever.

    His innings have been at home. His away record is abysmal.
