Harbhajan Singh praised this veteran Indian batter, calling him “as young as Ishan Kishan.”
Shikhar Dhawan was one of the few bright spots in India’s disappointing ODI series loss in South Africa last week. Dhawan scored 79, 29, and 61 runs in his return to the Indian team, finishing with a total of 169 runs in the three-match series.
Dhawan scored at a strike rate of 86.66 and an average of 56.33. He was unable, however, to prevent South Africa from sweeping the series 3-0. Dhawan’s high fitness levels, according to Indian spin legend Harbhajan Singh, indicate that he should remain a member of the national team setup in the future.

“Shikhar Dhawan’s return made me very happy. The reason for this is that he is a seasoned player, and if you compare him to other players while claiming that the other players are young, who is batting at a level that Shikhar Dhawan isn’t? So I am overjoyed to see Shikhar Dhawan return “Harbhajan stated to Sports Tak.
“He hit two fifties as soon as he returned. India lost the games, but he did his job. I’m not sure why people look at the ages of some players but not others. Some players competed in the World Cup at the ages of 38, 39, and 40 “He continued.
“Shikhar Dhawan, at 37 years (36 years), is now, I believe, as young as (Ishan) Kishan. His physical condition is excellent. If you say that he can’t make a comeback at 37 years old, I think you’re wrong. I am overjoyed that he made a comeback and demonstrated how much he still has in him.”
