Shikhar Dhawan made waves for the first time in the 2004 U-19 World Cup, in which he scored 505 runs in seven innings, which became a major scorer, after which many good things came up for him and he had long been known for his reputation with heavy runs Not taken up. In domestic cricket Unfortunately, for that, it was during a time when the national team was completely full of world-class players and that the break in that team was next to impossible.

However, patience and good performance was paid in October 2010 when he was called to the Indian team for three ODIs against Australia. As ill luck would have it, two games were abandoned due to rain and in the second match he had a nightmare of a debut by scoring a two-ball duck. His next chance came against the West Indies in mid-2011, but he could not make much impact in the four one-dayers played with the score of 51, 3, 4 and 11.. This made him big in international cricket. However, consistent performance at home level helped them to maintain their place on the second level of Indian players. What they needed was green and which came during the Test series in Australia in 2013.

Out-of-form Virender Sehwag was shown the door for the third test and Dhawan made his Test debut in Mohali. And guess what! He caught the chance with both hands, scored 187 runs in 174 balls, as well as 85 balls on the debut, which also earned the distinction of the fastest century by any batsman on debut. In the ICC Champions Trophy in June 2013, he scored two tons in India’s victory. He once again shone in the 2015 World Cup in Australia where he was India’s highest scorer and played a major role in the team’s semi-finals. His career was an up-and-down stage post, but it was once again in ICC event that he showed that he had it. He was the highest run scorer in the Champions Trophy in 2017.
