Shikhar Dhawan, the opener for India, has stated that he is concentrating on the One-Day International Cricket World Cup that will take place in 2023 and that he wants to play in as many matches as possible leading up to the premier cricketing tournament.
“My primary concentration is on the 50-overs World Cup that will take place in 2019, and in preparation for that tournament, I want to play as many matches as I can for India while also performing well in those matches. In the interim, there is the Indian Premier League (IPL), so I will work hard to maintain my performance there and will look for opportunities to play in one-day and Twenty20 matches within my country to keep myself match-fit and ready “Dhawan was quoted as saying this to The Times of India.
He is a skilled southpaw who hails from Delhi and has been a consistent performer for India in ICC events in the past. He stated that he enjoys competing in such international competitions.
“I have a lot of fun competing in ICC competitions. There is never the same sensation, but there is always a sense of fulfilment, and in the past, I’ve had some pretty successful tournaments. Every single tournament is approached and prepared for in the exact same manner “explained Dhawan.
“The pressure is always there whenever I put on the Indian jersey, but the point is, as a seasoned player, I am able to deal with it since I have done it before. The buzz unquestionably helps since it injects more motivation into my performance. I do not allow myself to be intimidated by the situation because my concentration, strategy, and preparation are the same for every competition that I take part in “he continued.
Recently, Dhawan captained Team India to a 3-0 victory in the One-Day International series against West Indies. In the forthcoming one-day internationals against Zimbabwe, which will begin on August 18, he will be the deputy to KL Rahul.
According to him, the key to successful captaincy is to maintain a “cool and aggressive” demeanour.
“Being appointed captain of India is an honour in and of itself. Being cool and aggressive is how I approach being a captain; I try to be aggressive on the inside while appearing to be calm on the outside. I want my squad to have a good time out there, but I also want them to keep their intensity up when we’re competing, and I want them to enjoy representing Team India. I get a lot of satisfaction from guiding younger boys and passing on what I’ve learned, and the experience helps me continue to develop my leadership skills “he stated.
