Everyone has an opinion, but I know what my job is and what I need to do: Shikhar Dhawan
“It makes no difference to me. If it had, I wouldn’t be here today. Everyone has an opinion, but I know what my job is and what I need to do. I’ve been doing this for a long time.

Prior to the England ODIs, the opening batter impressed during an ODI series in South Africa at the start of 2022. In three matches, he scored 169 runs, including two half-centuries.
For the ODI series, regular captain Rohit Sharma and experienced players such as Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, and Hardik Pandya have been rested. As a result, Dhawan will be leading a relatively inexperienced team in the Caribbean.
Dhawan spoke about his role in the team and his new captaincy assignment “I am overjoy. When I have the opportunity to work with children, I feel I can share my experience with them, particularly the mental aspect of how one can grow. I always enjoy sharing it and making a difference in their game.”
Dhawan, while acknowledging that there is always pressure in the game, stated that he will not change his playing style or nature.
