When it comes to ICC tournaments, there are only a handful of players who can have as much as an impact as Shikhar Dhawan.
No player has scored more runs in the last three ICC tournaments than Dhawan, who managed to garner 1113 runs across 18 innings.
The fact that two of those were held in England – the venue of the 2019 World Cup – makes a case for why the left-handed batsman can wreak havoc yet again.
Dhawan confirmed that he’s confident of yet another successful ICC tournament and the passion is unchanged from the last time he took to the crease.
“People tell me about my record in ICC events, but frankly speaking, the intent has always been the same. It’s not that the effort is less than 100 per cent ever,” Dhawan told Press Trust of India. “The focus as always is on the process. I am confident that I will have another good ICC tournament.
“Mera jazbaa aaj bhi utni hi hai [My passion is still the same as it was when I started]. I have shut out negativity, primarily because I am a happy-go-lucky person.
“Before I made my Test debut, I had played nearly nine years of first-class cricket. Had I not been passionate and hungry, I couldn’t have performed for India after nine years of domestic cricket. Now I have played six years of international cricket. It has been a great journey.”
