Shikhar Dhawan :- We want to emulate win record of Australian cricket team of old

 

‘Bench strength’

The opener added that Indian cricket team has now many options in all the positions and that problem of plenty is good.

“It’s simple, if we do well we will get to play. There are so many good batsmen and the bench strength is really solid. Everybody will get opportunity. Like (Ajinkya) Rahane played really well in the ODIs, in the T20I squad me and KL Rahul are there. Then in Tests we have (Murali) Vijay. There is no dearth of options,” Dhawan said.

Familiarity with conditions

Regarding getting a good start in the T20I series, Shikhar Dhawan said that familiarity with the conditions helped them to stay calm in the 49-run chase (D/L) in six overs.
