Paral: Shekhar Dhawan believes that every weakness in his career made him "strong", but his serenity and calmness made him go through tough times.

The oldest player in India's ODI, he was made much of Dhawan's poor level in domestic cricket, but as was the case with the 36-year-old, he is back with his favorite blue jersey. The maximum score of 79 passes on 84 balls resulted in the loss in his first international match against South Africa.

Asked how to keep him away from negativity, Dhawan said, "I don't listen to the media, read newspapers, or watch the news, so I don't receive all that information."

You didn't even hit him with a bad streak the first time and it won't be the last but you have to believe in his abilities.

"I have complete faith in myself, what's my game and I'm clear about it and I stay very calm. It's a part of life, life happens like this, everyone's life has its ups and downs, so if something new this is happening for the first time or in my career or another Once in my life, so it's okay, it just makes me stronger," Dhawan said.

Dhawan entered the series after a poor showing in Hazare Trophy scores - 0, 12, 14, 18, 12 in five A-list matches.
But if you look closely at Dhawan's career, when there are calls to leave, he always responds with great tackles, as he did in his first ODI, where he seemed to be the best batsman by his side.
"These things (quitting smoking) always happen and I get used to them and I just know how to do my best and always make sure my preparations are good enough and the process is good and then I go back to God." 

“...I know with my experience and confidence, that I will do well and I am glad I did so well today,” said the brilliant newbie joking.

His effort is to stay fit and healthy until the last part of his race.

Knowing full well that he is nearing the end of his career, he said, “In my experience, I will continue to score many kicks, and yes, as long as I play cricket, I will be healthy, happy, and score many kicks.” Hey. And
Playing shots in the middle of suspended sums is not easy.

NOT AN EASY WICKET TO PLAY SHOTS IN MIDDLE OVERS

“We got off to a good start and I think the wicket was slow, and it was also taking a little turn. So when you're chasing (almost) 300 rounds, when the middle rank comes in the at-bat, it's not an easy thing to play.”. shooting.

“Our pendulums fell into piles and it affected us like a beating unit,” Dhawan said.

Dhawan also paid tribute to South African pair Temba Pavuma (110 out of 143) and Rasi van der Dousen (129 out of 96) for their remarkable horns, which paved the way for victory.
When asked about the turning point in the match, he said, "I think my two South African rackets hit really well and took the turns very deeply."

YOUNGER BATTERS NEED TO MOULD GAME AS PER DEMANDS 


Dhawan believes
that dealing with different match situations comes with experience and the likes of Rishabh Pant, Iyers - Shreyas, and Venkatesh will understand better as they play more games.

“It (the discussion) that we have to play according to the situation and what the situation requires, putting the team ahead and the individual's game is important.

The left-hander was asked again how the middle-ranking problems could be fixed, and he replied: "Look at our thought process as a unit or a team we're building our team for the 2023 World Cup, so there are going to be some hiccups. Here and there, which is good and we as a team, we analyze How can we improve?

ROHIT'S ABSENCE IS A FACTOR

Dhawan believes the team will be stronger after the return of white-ball captain Rohit Sharma and the middle-ranking will also perform cricket better.

"And I think we all have good clarity now because we have this group of groups and they are going to be there and how they can be improved.

“There is no Rohit (Sharma) now, as soon as he comes back an experienced player will come and the middle-ranking (Rahul goes down) will be strong. So the youngsters who have chances will benefit from this experience. We are looking at the big picture.”
