Shikhar Dhawan has been in good touch since 2017, he has also been among the runs in the ongoing ODI series against Sri Lanka. Dhawan spoke at the pre-match press conference and highlighted his progress as a batsman and Rohit Sharma as captain. He also spoke of the city Vizag and his connection with it apart from talking about the wicket and what he expects.
About his connection with Vizag, the city, he said, “I love coming to Vizag, it is a beautiful city and a clean city as well. As it says Vizag is a city of destiny and Vizag has been a good hunting ground. I am happy with the way I am performing. I kept on learning things and then implement it in the games.”

“The way we came back in the next game, in Mohali we felt that it was a damp wicket at the start but it wasn’t. Still the ball wasn’t coming that nicely when we were batting at the start. We took the pressure nicely and changed the game after ten overs. As I said, it’s always a learning curve, we are learning and we are going to get better from here,” the left-handed opener said about how he felt the wicket would react.

About Rohit Sharma, he said, “He has only been captain for two matches but I’ve known Rohit from a long time and I know what his character is like. He is a very chilled out captain and tells us to keep the basics right, we all know our roles, we just have to give our best and hats off to him for the way he performed in the last game. Very happy about it,” said Dhawan.

“Of course there is pressure whenever you play a final (decider), there is pressure but we are used to it and there is going to be a big crowd tomorrow. We are a strong side and we believe in our ability and our skill, we are going to go out and play it like any other game, just do the basics right,” he added.
“See of course, when you attack the opposition and the players we are, the calibre we have got once we are in. Once I am in, I can demolish any side because that is my strength, And even Rohit, once he gets settled, he scores big. Of course any opposition can have plans when they lose, they will learn out of it and will come out with a better mindset, we know about it, we will be aware of it because we know they will come out with strong plans for us,” he concluded.
