Dhawan - Stick a Fork in him?

Postby Fully_Sihk » Sun Apr 23, 2017 2:06 am

When he first started a lot of East Lahoreans thought Shikar was the reincarnation of Sehwag. I remember reading from Indian blog posters that he would be a 10k run player by the time his career is over.

However his career has largely stalled and looks a shadow of his former self. Is it time thagmt Lol Indian selectors stuck a fork in Shikar for good?

I too enjoyed his expansive stroke play and positivity at the crease. But as you say it hasn't quite come to fruition.

But who is waiting in the wings?

I bet he will be come out good in England.he was M.O.SERIES in 2013,Champion trophy in England.he will go to England, as Rahul unavailable and rohit not much interested to open in limited format anymore

I think BCCI might includes Gautam Gambhir in the Indian team as opener.

Ha. We desi would use superlatives for every youngster that comes to limelight. In Pakistan every newbee fast bowler is the next waseem akram or waqar younis

I see this opinion is popular amongst Austalian fans - I just found this on an Aussie forum - http://biggerfooty.proboards.com/thread ... stick-fork

I'm going to sign up and troll the Aussie flogs, anyone else want to join?
